He seems to be a fan. The rise of AEW has changed the way the wrestling world works and it has made all kinds of differences in the industry. For the first time in years, there is another top level wrestling promotion in the United States, allowing more wrestlers to work on a large stage. There is also a bit of a rivalry between WWE and AEW, but now there is at least one AEW star who is a WWE fan.

Last Second Change: Here Is Why Rey Mysterio Missed The Royal Rumble, What Is Next

WWE held its annual Royal Rumble event over the weekend, with Cody Rhodes winning the Men’s Royal Rumble match. Since then, a photo has made its way online, showing Rhodes backstage with AEW star Ricky Starks behind him. There is nothing to suggest that Starks was there as anything more than a visitor. Starks has since commented on the photo, saying “they brought back GTV”, referencing a hidden camera storyline from the late 1990s in the WWF.

Damn they brought back GTV ?

Opinion: This is one of those things that is not likely to mean anything but makes for an interesting visual. Starks was probably just backstage visiting friends or wanted to be there for Rhodes’ big moment. It was a huge moment for Rhodes and I can’t blame someone for wanting to be there to see it happen. If nothing else, it shows that the two sides can be ok without some big war between them, as wrestling has moved on a bit since then.

What did you think of Rhodes’ win? What is next for Stark in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
