EVP Cody Rhodes is a wrestling heritage. His father was Dusty Rhodes, who was fighting WWE when he was called WWF. His wife, Brandy Rhodes, is the Chief Director of the brand, and they both get on the ring. That's how they plan to make All Elite Wrestling a great name in the sport like WWE.
Entertainment was not named All Elite Wrestling for
When the World Wrestling Federation had to change its name because the World Wildlife Federation won the WWF acronym, they chose World Wrestling Entertainment. They are presented as sporting entertainment. AEW focuses on sports. ”

"Industry is not controlled by fighters, by more corporate subjects," said Cody Rhodes. "I do not speak to them in a negative way, but I can tell you that this is a fight. This is a fight show that brought you from fighters to wrestling fans. This in itself is a revolution for our industry and its performers. "
The less is bigger in All Elite Wrestling
WWE makes a live broadcast on TV every day and even more in the arena. This is great for fans, but exhausting fighters. AEW strives to put the wrestlers in the ring only once a week and count them.
"Our fighters struggle with one show a week," said Brandi Rhodes. "This is not something that people are on their way five days a week. We do not worry about driving five hours a night after you put your body in the most strain you can pass through. Well-being is very important to us. "
Well-being extends not only to avoid ring injuries or exhaustion, but only for personal life. "Our fighters have good prosperity, they can be at home, enjoy part of their time with their families because many of us have families or want to have families," said Brandi Rhodes. "Now it is possible that this is paramount. This, along with some of the best medical specialists in our team, some of the best physiotherapists, really have a really profitable combination. "
