AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes told a fan on social media that he doesn’t mind what Jim Cornette says about AEW. He also though said that his stuff is “parody and shock” that some fans take literally.
Cody Responds To Jim Cornette’s Claim that AEW Wanted To Bring In Goldberg
After Jim Cornette claimed on his podcast recently that AEW President Tony Khan wanted Goldberg to join AEW and re-do his streak story from WCW, Cody took to Twitter to say that AEW and Goldberg never had any contact.
It’s worth noting that Cornette didn’t actually say AEW and Goldberg had contact. His claim is just that Khan wanted to bring Goldberg to AEW.
As reported earlier, Goldberg has confirmed that he is still under WWE contract for two more years, with two matches per year.
“This isn’t real. We had no contact ha.”

Cody took to Twitter to explain why he doesn’t take issue with Jim Cornette’s outspoken shots at AEW. Cornette has been very notable for some time as being critical of AEW’s product and the way they present shows, some of which is an extension of his dislike for Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks’ approach to the business.
After Cody engaged with a fan who took shots at how Lance Archer has been booked in AEW, a fan suggested he stop engaging with them and invoked Cornette’s name as a reference to the criticisms.
I don’t mind the cornete stuff. Guy was a total legend, but his stuff is parody and shock…some folks take it literally though.
I respect all the opinions, wrestling hasn’t been discussed at this level in many years. Can’t hate that. We are working to make the best show weekly.
