“Well, I’m in an interracial marriage and I’ve learned a lot that I would’ve never known. One time I told Brandi, I said ‘I don’t see color’ and she said ‘well you don’t see my experience.’ And I thought ‘oh, you’re right, I can’t just say that.’ You need to be able to see that experience and at least understand it.

That’s out, the best wrestlers are gonna field the game and that’s a very diverse profile and I’m really proud of it.”

Cody's comments caught the attention of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Cody and AEW have been open about being an all-inclusive promotion, not only for wrestlers but for fans at well. Earlier this year, they issued a statement encouraging fans of all races, religions, and sexual orientations to come together. You can view their statement by clicking here.
