Cody Defends AEW's Commitment To Diversity, Removes Wrestler From AEW Dark For Past Hateful Tweets

In the middle of these trying times, Cody Rhodes says AEW’s commitment to diversity has been apparent since day one and remains strong.

When responding to a fan on Twitter asking whether or not Cody Rhodes and All Elite Wrestling intend to highlight more diverse talent, Cody would respond by saying that a black man, Scorpio Sky, was one of their first champions and the company has the only black executive in wrestling, referring to his wife, Brandi Rhodes.

Cody would then respond to a fan saying that he should use his platform to tweet something encouraging by saying that they are exploring merchandise options in order to raise profit for charitable causes during this time.

In another moment of Cody defending their commitment to diversity and the removal of hatred from AEW, wrestler Clutch Adams had his match removed from AEW Dark due to past homophobic tweets by the wrestler resurfacing.

Cody, who just won the TNT Championship will be in action this coming Wednesday when he defends the new championship against Jungle Boy.
