Cody Asks Fans To Be Extra Patient With AEW Video Game, Wants Wrestling To Create New Stars

Seemingly since the origins of AEW, fans have been asking about the potential AEW video game. AEW launched a figure line in February 2020, making fans hopeful that the video game wasn't far behind.

Taking part in a Q&A with Bleacher Report, Cody provided an "honest update" on where things stand with AEW and a video game.

"I'll give an honest update: the AEW video game will be something all fans know about as we begin the process and as we move forward. If we were to make a very good game, which is our intention, it's going to take time. Game development is arduous, it's a very creative space, and we want to do it right. We will keep people updated, it won't come as a surprise, we want them to take the journey with us. Be extra patient so we can deliver," he said.

There has been no substantial update on the AEW video game aside from The Young Bucks, Cody, and Kenny Omega teasing announcements and noting that work is being done.

Other highlights from Cody's Q&A session:

On wrestlers using social media: "The pros have to outweigh the cons. The DIY wrestlers that exist out there, they were born because of social media, and a portion of AEW exists because of social media. I don't know if it'll be as important in the future as it is now, but it's still very important."

Best advice he got from his dad Dusty Rhodes: "It was very simple: my dad spoke like a preacher on Sunday, so almost everything was advice or a pep talk. But the thing he hit me with that was my favorite: hit your finish."

His wrestling Mount Rushmore: "Flair, Hogan Rock. Leave the fourth one as a vacant silhouette...because wrestling needs to make new stars."
