All Elite Wrestling had a big day today, and offered some context as well.
The company was a part of TNT's presentation at today's Television Critics Association, and took part in a panel with several members of the roster there. Cody Rhodes, Brandi Rhodes, Nyla Rose, Awesome Kong, Jungle Boy and others appeared, and answered questions from media.
You can see several tweets from entertainment journalists from TCA 2019 below.
Brandi Rhodes says that because #AEW is only doing one show a week, the wrestlers won't be driving themselves on the road, putting injured bodies in the ring. She says "well-being" is important. Kia Stevens adds she's "very happy" and "heard." #TCA19— Meghan O’Keefe (@megsokay) July 24, 2019
Wrestler Dusty Rhodes’ son Cody Rhodes is executive vice president (and a performer) with All Elite Wrestling, which rolls out flashy Wednesday night fights show Oct. 2 on TNT that as yet has no name. #TCA19— Roger Catlin (@rcatlin) July 24, 2019
Cody Rhodes talks about a smaller wrestling show three guys put together and it sold out -- with no corporation behind it. Rhodes reminds us that at one time, wrestling was one of TNT's highest-rated shows (before 2001) #AEWonTNT #TCA19— Diane Gordon (@thesurfreport) July 24, 2019
Cody Rhodes says they listen to the live audience at #AEWonTNT shows to gauge which wrestlers the audience likes. They have arcs planned but they'll listen/respond to who the audience likes. Brandi Rhodes says "everything is shiftable." @AEWrestling #TCA19— Diane Gordon (@thesurfreport) July 24, 2019
