Cody Rhodes Responds to Val Venis' Comments About Nyla Rose and Transphobic Reactions

As noted, Nyla Rose’s transgender status caused people like Val Venis to comment and spark a larger social discussion after Women’s World Title win.

During a media briefing for AEW earlier today, Cody Rhodes addressed the reaction of former WWE talent Val Venis on what had to say on Nyla Rose winning. Venis has been on a tirade about her win since it happened.

The American Nightmare was very direct as he is “disappointed” in the Big Valbowski. He also said that AEW has no plans to ever book him.

“I think it’s disappointing if you’re perhaps someone who grew up liking Val Venis, you know. I don’t know. He’s kinda like the Disco Inferno of WWE. I don’t know if anyone knows who Val Venis is anymore. It’s disappointing because I don’t think he actually means the terrible things he puts in writing. I think he’s just trying to get a booking. We’re not booking Val Venis and you’re not getting booked anywhere near us.”

Cody went on to say that the real way to end the bigotry, negativity, and transphobia is “don’t hit the ball back.”

“When you hit the ball back you’re giving him oxygen and I’m not giving Val Venis any oxygen about Nyla Rose. Nyla Rose won the AEW Women’s Championship because she was the best woman in AEW and that’s just it. So, yeah, I think we should all just stop hitting the ball back to these people. It’s 2020 everyone should love everybody, you know what I’m saying? In some capacity — I know it sounds super hippie of me, but it’s just how I feel today.”
