Cody Rhodes discusses the AEW arrival of Kenny Omega.
During Thursday's AEW Ticket Announcement Party in Las Vegas, fans were elated to see Kenny Omega officially join the All Elite Wrestling. The real surprise wasn't Omega being part of AEW, but his role in the company. Along with being part of the active roster, Omega is also an Executive Vice President alongside Cody and The Young Bucks.
Speaking to the media following the party, Cody discussed what it means to have Omega on board with the promotion.
"There seems to be some confusion. I thought I was the only Executive Vice President," Cody joked. "We're going to figure it out. That was a big piece of this because in 1990 whatever, collaborations didn't work. This is a different group. We're friends and we're interested in giving the modern star a start with us. I think every here has the best intentions. I'm probably the one with the worst intentions but they level me out. Kenny was a big part of (All In). He doesn't get the credit for it. Now he'll get all the credit because we all have the same title. I think it's great. I couldn't share it with better dudes."
