Last week AEW Dynamite premiered on TNT, and the show beat NXT in the ratings when it went head to head with WWE’s developmental brand for the very first time.
On Sunday night Seth Rollins defended his Universal Championship against Bray Wyatt inside Hell in a Cell and the match was stopped by the referee.
The fans weren’t happy with the decision, and they let the powers that be know when they chanted “AEW” and “bulls**t.”
Cody Rhodes was recently a guest on the Joe Cronin Show and when he was asked about the chants he said that they were flattering.
“I mean when those come up, I wasn’t watching the pay-per-view, but when those come up, your phone starts blowing up and your social starts blowing up. Whenever the crowd chants something, whether it’s boring, whether it’s a promotion, whether it’s your name, it means they want to be rewarded with something. That’s just kind of when you’re in the ring wrestling 101 and we know that we want to reward them.”
“So it was, it was flattering. I wouldn’t be one to gloat about it only because I know that one of the guys in that match got concussed and this job ain’t that easy, but nevertheless whenever we hear those chants, it’s more validation that what we’re doing and what we’ve been saying about this market existing, it’s real.”
