AEW commentator Tony Schiavone was a guest on this week’s AEW Unrestricted podcast.
Schiavone remembered receiving an offer from WWE in 2019, and Cody Rhodes persuading him to refuse WWE’s deal. Schiavone was also threatened by his wife to refuse the deal.
This is what he said:
“Bruce told me in early 2019. He said,’I’m going back to work for Vince,’ and this was January 2019, and he said,” You If you give me like a few months, I think I can come and work here to contact you. “
He contacted me on Sunday that summer, and he said, “Vince wants you to come back and work for us.” And I said, “Wonderful, what are we talking about?” He said, “We don’t know yet, but you want to produce and work behind the scenes. I want you to be a producer because I want to. I’ll get back to you. I said, “OK.” You receive such an offer, and you are thinking, “Man, things may be on the way.”
So do I call my wife, no! I call it Conrad (Thompson). I said, “I was just offered a job by WWE, and he said,” It’s great. ” I hung up the phone. Two minutes later, I received a text from Cody. Cody said, I don’t want you to work for WWE, and I said, “OK, like.” That’s all I said. And he said you would accept a call from Tony Khan. Certainly said. Tony called me. We talked for an hour, an hour or more.
I immediately wanted to work there (AEW). And I also had a wife. We have been married for 39 years and she told me, “You get back to work at WWE, I’m going to divorce your $$.”
