Cody Rhodes comments on "Go Big Show."
In January 2021, TBS premiered "Go Big Show," a talent competition show where people would perform extreme feats that includes monster trucks, over the top magic tricks, horses, and more much.
In keeping with AEW synergy, Cody Rhodes was one of the judges for the show alongside Rosario Dawson, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain, and Jennifer Nettles.
Speaking to Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Dale Download, Cody took blame for the show ending after two seasons.
"Go Big Show. At the time, we had started AEW, WarnerMedia, they were just looking for crossover. That was my role at AEW. I was the face of the brand. I was not the champion, but I was going to be ‘we know him a little from WWE, casual fans, he’s in a suit, he looks the part.’ I was going to be the face for these crossovers. That’s all they wanted out of it. It was doing really well ratings, can we bring some of those people over? I’m of the thought, I want as many people watching our show as possible. That means sending me to Macon, Georgia in the pandemic for a month where we were totally bubbled up. Yes, send me. I will watch some crazy acts with no audience. One of the most fun experiences I’ve ever been a part of. I feel terrible because when I left the show, they didn’t do the show again. They were ready to do the show again. If Snoop, Rosario, or Jennifer Nettles ever beat me up in a back alley somewhere, I understand. I might have screwed up season three," he said.
The final episode of Go Big Show aired on March 10, 2022.
Cody Rhodes returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38 as the mystery opponent for Seth Rollins.
