Cody Rhodes will never turn heel in AEW.
At least he has made a guarantee that he won’t.
“The American Nightmare” recently spoke with Pop Culture for an interview, during which he revealed two guarantees he has made on his AEW career — that he won’t turn heel, and that he won’t ever go back on his word to challenge for the AEW World Championship.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic.
“This will disappoint so many and maybe it won’t, maybe this will excite, but two things I can guarantee you, and I’m not saying this to wave one hand while you’re not looking at the other. I’m telling this from the most honest standpoint, I am not going to turn heel on this company. And I would retire before I did that. Now I’m the head of the community outreach group. I have a little girl now. I’m not going to be doing heel stuff on TV.
“I am not turning heel and I’m not going back on my word to challenge for the title. That stuff was real. It hurts. It is a large regret that that ever happened, but it did happen and I can live with it. And I got to do that dance with Chris Jericho, and I will not go back on that stipulation, me personally. If Tony wanted to change things he could. And again, you can never say never in wrestling, but I do think there’s this idea that evil corporate need would turn the stipulation around and challenge for the world title, that I can say never will happen.”
