Cody Rhodes spoke with The Beat to promote the upcoming All In event. Here are the highlights.
Selecting main event for All In:
“The main event will be the six-man; Rey Mysterio, Bandito, and Fenix against The Golden Elite (Young Bucks & Kota Ibushi). At one point it was going to be Kenny Omega vs. Pentagon, but what you see on Being The Elite is true, as silly as it may seem. Asking Kenny to do the main event was a lot after the G1 tournament [New Japan Pro Wrestling]. But I think you have the spirit of the event in the souls of Matt and Nick. Then there’s Rey who was the guy who gave me my first WrestleMania, my first break, so there’s a special nod there. Also, I just want to see what they can do in the ring together. As a fan, I’m excited for that.”
Possible All In 2:
“Well I mean this crew is together a lot. One day we’re all in Japan and the next day its here and when I say crew I mean more than just me and the Bucks, you know it includes Marty [Scurll], Hangman [Page], and Kenny Omega. They’re all very much factored into everything that’s happening. I think we’ve pushed off all pre-planning and speculation to September 2nd. Because it’s pretty common knowledge our contracts [with Ring of Honor] are coming up. They all end on the same day, shockingly.”
