Also, he talked about how ‘weird’ it is to see AEW fans burning his old merchandise because he left them.

Cody Rhodes says that he has no beef with the WCW veterans who arraigned him

‘The Prince of Pro Wrestling’ has accomplished much to prove his significance as a visionary businessman and a pro wrestler. When commentator Corey Graves asked him how proud he must be to achieve his dreams, Rhodes was glad to answer. “It’s the most (prideful feeling). And I know you this Cory, that just the generation that preceded us has really helped in letting us all know how we’re not doing it right. How we don’t move needles. How we don’t end like.”

Further, Cody Rhodes went on to speak about why he was not agitated when wrestling legends constantly criticize his generation in terms of how much the matches gross in the charts. Rhodes said, “I have no beef with Vince Russo and Jim Cornette. They’ve said some wild stuff, particularly about Brandi (Cody Rhodes’ wife), which doesn’t sit well, you know loved ones.”

“It’s something absurd with all of his opinions on me or whatever. “hey, bud, I’m not mad at you, good for you. I was a fan of your work in the 80s, one of the hottest tag teams of all time, an incredible manager, a lot of knowledge of the industry… well, sir, I have a lot of it as well, and again. All the data is right there. But If you don’t see it, that’s okay,” explained the former vice president of AEW.

Moreover, The American Nightmare talked about the time he responded to wrestler Disco Inferno. “Poor Disco Inferno, I neutered him, publically online one time, I cut the guy’s b*lls right off, I don’t know if he’s still in his hole but I felt bad. What was the point of that? What was the point?”
