AEW star Cody Rhodes spoke to Robbie Fox on My Mom’s Basement ahead of the release of his reality show, Rhodes To The Top. During the interview, he was asked about Bryan Danielson, one of the promotion’s newest additions.
Rhodes revealed that when they were both in WWE, he and Danielson used to ride together. “We rode together pre and just entering the Yes Movement,” he said, adding that adding someone of The American Dragon’s caliber to the roster was huge for AEW:
“We rode together pre and just entering the Yes Movement.. I’d say the time leading up to the Yes Movement was a little bit darker and more melancholy. Things weren’t going so well, and it was fascinating to see how the man, the human being, had never really changed – just an honest to a fault, no pun intended to MJF, but a genuine salt of the earth… you never hear anything negative about Bryan Danielson. That’s because he’s a consummate professional, and I’m thrilled he was able to connect with fans in the manner he did. He’s one of the last super-organic talents to emerge from WWE, when the company was on the verge of WrestleMania 30, and the whole nature of it was so incredible. “”So far, Bryan has been a great free agent, and he can really help with his star power. Fans would be happy if he went out and played the greatest hits, but he’s not going to do that. Cody Rhodes said, “He’s going to push himself even harder.”
The American Nightmare recently returned to All Elite Wrestling, debuting on Dynamite as Malakai Black confronted Rosario Dawson, his co-host on The Go Big Show. Rhodes then faced Malakai Black at AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam, where he was defeated after Black sprayed mist into his eyes. Cody Rhodes and The Nightmare Family’s feud with Malakai Black appears to be set to continue.
