Cody Rhodes comments on AEW chants at Hell in a Cell

New, comments

The great thing about pro wrestling is that fans can provide real time feedback to the product.

On Sunday night at Hell in a Cell, the majority of the live crowd in attendance were not pleased with the finish/non-finish of the main event. The red lighting, Rollins looking bad, The Fiend fumbling away a lot of good will, and a confusing ending to the match were just a few of the lowlights.

As pro wrestling fans do, the WWE crowd started a few AEW chants during the Universal title match.

Appearing on the Joe Cronin Show, Cody Rhodes was asked about WWE fans in Sacramento chanting for AEW during the tail end of the Hell in a Cell main event between Rollins and Wyatt.

“I wasn’t watching the pay-per-view, but when those come up, everyone, your phone starts blowing up and your social starts blowing up. Whenever the crowd chants something, whether it’s boring, whether it’s a promotion, whether it’s your name, it means they want to be rewarded with something. That’s just kind of when you’re in the ring, Wrestling 101 and we know that we want to reward them.”

Cody continues:

”So it was, it was flattering. I wouldn’t be one to gloat about it only because I know that one of the guys in that match got concussed and this job ain’t that easy, but nonetheless whenever we hear those chants, it’s more validation that what we’re doing and what we’ve been saying about this market existing, is real.”

Rhodes also drops a rumored tidbit here about either Rollins or Wyatt suffering a concussion during the match.

Are “AEW” chants the new “CM Punk” chants for a nation of bored, confused, or frustrated WWE fans moving forward?
