Cody Rhodes’ days with AEW may be a thing of the past, but the American Nightmare would prove crucial for the recent All In pay-per-view.
The August 27, event marked AEW’s first event outside of North America and boasted the highest-paid attendance in wrestling history. The event was headlined by AEW World Champion MJF retaining his title against his friend and fellow ROH World Tag Team Champion Adam Cole.
All In and Cody Rhodes
Taking to Instagram this week, Nick Jackson shared several posts of gratitude toward those who competed at All In. Among them, Jackson praised Orange Cassidy and Best Friends as “guys who worked their asses off for decades,” and Cole and MJF as two men who “captivated not only once but twice during a five-hour event.” Jackson would also have praise for Sting, Hikaru Shida, Darby Allin, Will Ospreay, Eddie Kingston, and FTR, telling the tag team that “this isn’t over.”
Jackson’s final positive message was reserved for WWE’s own Cody Rhodes. With an image of Rhodes and the Bucks from the original 2018 All In, Nick expressed his belief that this year’s show could not have been possible without Rhodes helping to prove there was a market for wrestling outside WWE.
“This doesn’t happen without you [Rhodes.] Spoiler alert for the people who say we hate each other. That isn’t true.”
Rhodes was with AEW from January 2019 to February 2022 and would return to WWE at WrestleMania that April. Despite his exit from AEW, Rhodes has maintained a positive relationship with those at AEW and was over the moon with The Elite’s new lucrative deals to remain with Tony Khan’s promotion.
