Tony Khan Came Up With The Idea For 'Rhodes To The Top'

"Rhodes To The Top," the new reality show that will follow the lives of Cody & Brandi Rhodes is set to premiere on September 29 on TNT.

The show will not only show Brandi and Cody in their personal lives, but will also give fans access to what happens behind the scenes in AEW.

Speaking on the Rich Eisen Show, Brandi revealed that it was Tony Khan's idea for them to do the show.

"We've been talking about it all day, and I just realized we have it all wrong. We've been saying the wrong thing all day. The reality on it is, it came from Tony. Tony is the original one who was like 'we should do a reality show with you guys. You can show the backstage and show your lives.' That was 100% Tony and all day I've been saying it was TNT's idea," she said.

Cody and Brandi are listed as producers on the show, which they took as meaning having more control over things. That wasn't quite the case as they said cameras would still film when they were asked to go away.

Cody said, "From a wrestling perspective, this is the most unprecedented behind the scenes access I have ever seen. AEW is built on the hardcore fan in the first place. I hope they love what they see. It is something you never would have seen in the yesteryears of wrestling."

"Rhodes To The Top" will premiere following AEW Dynamite on Wednesday, September 29.
