Cody Rhodes says he has gotten used to wrestling without an audience, and that scares him.
Last night at AEW Double Or Nothing 2020, Cody Rhodes defeated land to Archer to become the first-ever AEW TNT Champion. For Cody, that was the professional pinnacle inside of the ring, but he was equally as happy with affairs outside of the squared circle.
Speaking with ESPN, the EVP of All Elite Wrestling called this era one that “wrestling will forget,” but proclaimed the pay-per-view event to be unforgettable.
"It's been one of the most challenging times as a performer and competitor ever," Rhodes said. "I scarily have gotten used to the no fans and I don't like that. I want to get back into arenas, I want to get back with fans."
Cody would also say that it was so real to have Mike Tyson as part of the event. Tyson handed Cody the championship after his victory.
Ultimately, “The American Nightmare” is pleased with how the event turned out.
"We're obligated," Rhodes said. "I'm obligated. It's my literal job to make you happy. I'm very happy with tonight."
