Cody Rhodes Says Running A Stadium Show Is A Personal Goal For Him

Cody Rhodes wants to tick a stadium show off his list.

AEW has already checked off major accomplishments in their short history, including being the number one show on cable and selling out arenas. For Cody, he has some personal goals in mind, including packing stadiums.

"The idea of a stadium show, that would be a really good goal for me and I would hope would be a goal for AEW," Cody told Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp when asked about running stadium shows on the AEW Dynamite media call. "To a degree, we're doing it with Arthur Ashe, which is unreal. It's such a great building, there's not a bad seat in the house. We're at the point now where we're like, 'Could we? What could we put on? What could we call it?' It's something, I can't say it's formally been discussed, but we're all thinking it. I know a few places that I thought would be great for a stadium show that haven't been touched on. This is just me saying it; Miller Park is a unique venue that sits between a massive stadium show and an intimate vibe. That's something I'm interested in, but I can't speak for the whole company as far as where we're looking and hat we have laid out. It would be wonderful to do a stadium show, which we are doing with Arthur Ashe, but to do another large one. Those become destinations. All the Independent shows that join up with it. The Cons that come with it. It feels like a natural extension of the original All In, which was the Woodstock of wrestling, is a big stadium show. No plans currently, but it's a personal goal for me."

Miller Park (now American Family Field) is home of the Milwaukee Brewers.

AEW is set to run AEW Dynamite on Arthur Ashe on September 22. The show hasn't sold out at the time of this writing.
