Dustin Rhodes recently sat down with WINCLY on their weekly podcast and touched on a number of topics, including his frustrations with WWE’s creative team.
“AEW is gonna open a lot of eyes and shock the world. I think everybody is rushing to up their ratings and entertainment value. Let’s face it, the creative team in the other company [WWE]? you pitch so many ideas and nothing ever gets done. They never take your idea seriously and then you have to bypass them and go to the boss [Vince McMahon],” stated Rhodes.”
Double or Nothing is only a few short days away and AEW is still busy finalizing the card. Today they announced that Shawn Spears would appear in the 21 man Casino Battle Royale.
“AEW ended speculation and confirmed that Shawn Spears—known in WWE as “The Perfect 10” Tye Dillinger—is the latest entry in Double or Nothing’s 21-man Casino Battle Royale.”
