Cody Rhodes recently did an interview with Alex McCarthy of Talk Sport and an interesting snippet has been released.
McCarthy shared the interest that Rhodes appears to have for Luke Harper, who was recently granted his release from WWE. Rhodes thinks he has a bright future and would be great as part of All Elite Wrestling.
“He would be great as part of AEW. He’s a name that when you hear they’ve asked for their release, you definitely think about that and the next steps, for sure. I think he’s going to flourish with what he does next, he’s very special.”
Several AEW executives have previously talked about how they don’t want to go down the same path that TNA Wrestling did back in the day by signing any star who was let go by WWE right away.
The company has picked up some former WWE stars but the majority of their roster made their names outside of the WWE banner by working for other companies.
Back in April, Harper requested his release from WWE but the request was denied at the time. That all changed earlier this month when WWE announced that they had granted his release.
