Cody Rhodes Claims Brodie Lee’s Promos Are Not An “Outright Spoof” On Vince McMahon



The Exalted One of The Dark Order, Brodie Lee (fka WWE’s Luke Harper) has received mixed reactions for his two back-to-back promos on AEW Dynamite. In both promos, Lee dressed up like WWE CEO Vince McMahon causing fans to believe that the ex-Superstar has been parodying his former boss in the rival company.

On Busted Open Radio, Co-Executive Vice President of AEW, Cody Rhodes discussed Lee’s video promos to reveal that although he isn’t aware of the original plan, there’s absolutely no intention to mention Mr. McMahon’s name ever on Dynamite.

“So I can never tell you the original plan and I don’t even know if there was an original plan and I will say, very unlikely on AEW, you’ll ever hear the name of Vince McMahon said and if you do hear me say it in interviews and in general, I always speak very highly of Vince, because, well A, he’s Vince McMahon and B, I was a WWE guy to start. I didn’t come from anywhere else. I came through their feeder system and they were the house that built me.”

Cody further stated that he’s got immense respect for Mr. McMahon and owes a lot to WWE for giving him the grand platform to kickstart his career in the pro wrestling industry.

“When it comes to some of the parallels between Brodie’s style of leadership, there are unique parallels but I don’t think it’s particularly a spoof on Vince McMahon and maybe it’s because we’ll see how it develops in the next few weeks.”

“I think Brodie just has a very power boss, very animal kingdom, kind of social Darwinism-type approach to The Dark Order, and I think that’s all in line with perhaps some of Vince’s quirks but, it’s not an outright spoof on the legendary Mr. McMahon. Not outright.”

Despite the claims made by Cody, we’re pretty aware of what went down during the steak and boardroom promos; Lee shed light on some of the things that make working with Mr. McMahon such an unusual experience.

Lee’s latest promo pokes fun at McMahon’s strict policy regarding WWE’s dress code.
