223

Former WCW star Glenn Gilbertti, a/k/a Disco Inferno, asked on social media if Cody Rhodes’ character on AEW television was a heel and then he made reference to his TNT title defenses against independent talent.

“Is Cody Rhodes a heel? This is like the old school angle where you have a list of worthy contenders and they are just a bunch of indy workers that don’t even work for the company. #warhorse,” Gilbertti tweeted.

Cody beat Eddie Kingston to retain on last week’s Dynamite and is set to defend against Warhorse next Wednesday night.

Rhodes responded to the tweet, with this:

“I’m neither. I’m a competitor & a reigning champion. Tired old tropes are even more insulting to the viewer considering I’ve been on their TV since I was 20. It ain’t black and white, it hasn’t been in forever. Circumstances of the match dictate who we cheer for, beautiful thing.”
