AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes made a recent appearance on The Apter Chat to speak with Bill Apter about All Elite Wrestling. 

During the interview, he talked about how he thinks he’ll be working the first match of the night on the premiere episode of AEW’s weekly television show on TNT. 

“I think, as of looking at it now, I’ll probably be the very first match of the night.” The reason for his belief is due to it being a special place in his mind and from a logistic and planning standpoint making sense.

“It makes it very easy for me to go sit down, put the headset on, and help Tony Khan and the other EVPs produce the rest of the show.”
