Cody Rhodes released a new video in which he and the AEW roster thank the fans for helping the new promotion get a TV deal with TNT.
WarnerMedia announced this week that AEW’s TV show will air on TNT later this year. The company will provide multi-platform access for fans to watch AEW events, airing live weekly matches on TNT in prime time, as well as streaming them through WarnerMedia’s B/R Live and on pay-per-view.
Rhodes shared a video Thursday on his YouTube channel reflecting on the big announcement. “It’s not missed on me, sitting here in Atlanta, Georgia — the youngest of the Rhodes family — the weight of that announcement, the fact that pro wrestling is returning to Turner,” Cody explained.
Rhodes also talked about AEW’s new deal with ITV and how this isn’t just a moment for All Elite Wrestling, but also a moment for the fans.
“The real purpose of me sitting here today is simple,” he continued. “I want to take a moment to thank you. Thank you for your passion. Thank you for your loyalty. Thank you for your patience. We can’t do this without you. We don’t intend to do this without you. Let’s go forward.”
The rest of the roster is then shown saying thank you as well.
