0

Former WWE star Shawn Spears (formerly known as Tye Dillinger) was recently interviewed by Bill Apter at last weekend’s Legends Of The Ring convention. Spears opened up about his relationship with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes, and offered a prediction for “Hangman” Adam Page vs. Chris Jericho for the first-ever AEW World Title.

Here are the highlights:

His relationship with Cody Rhodes: “Well, it’s common knowledge that I’m good friends with an Executive Vice President, and I’d heard the rumblings like everyone else across the planet. I’d heard about the beginning of something special, so when the opportunity presented itself to be part of it, it just so happened to fall in line with my timeline of the whole 90-day [non-compete clause].

“That worked out perfectly in terms of timing, so once one thing ended, another door opened and I dove through that door without hesitation. It turned out to be the best decision I’ve made in a recent memory.”


“Hangman” Page vs. Jericho prediction: “Nobody loves Chris Jericho more than Chris Jericho. He’s going to be gunning for it more than anybody else because he feels like he still has something to prove, even though the guy’s resume speaks for itself. I’m pulling for Hangman. I think Hangman has a chance to make himself a worldwide, global star in one match. That’s the match to do it in.”
