NWA World Heavyweight Champion Cody was recently a guest on WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross’ podcast, The Ross Report. Cody talked about All In and how successful the self-funded event was earlier this month. After his match with Nick Aldis for the NWA Title, Cody produced the second half of the show:
“I didn’t get a chance to sleep [after All In] and I went right to gorilla [position] after my match and I directed and timed the last half of the show,” Cody said. “I’m not the best timer judging by the main event time. I’m learning! But I didn’t get that moment to… I didn’t get many moments. It was just happening so fast.”
Cody then talked about the possibility of doing an All In 2. When asked what he learned from his first show, which he can apply to a possible follow-up to make it better, Cody revealed he’s already planning:
“Well, maybe we already started planning [laughs].” Cody added, “I kept writing these lists. And my dad was a big list guy and I have become a big list guy too. I kept writing these lists of these are the things to do to make sure you’re in peak condition, and also make sure you’re in peak mental state, and make sure you paid this guy and talked to this guy.
“I also learned I wanted to do every single thing with this show. I wanted to do payroll; I wanted to know elements of production; I wanted to know how many chairs were in the union catering room.”
Do you think there will be an All In 2 next year?
