Cody Comments on What He Would Do Differently for All In 2
A recent episode of The Jim Ross Report podcast had Cody as one of the guests and one of the topics discussed was what he would do differently if another All In event was held.
“Well, maybe we already started planning [laughs]. I kept writing these lists. And my dad was a big list guy and I have become a big list guy too. I kept writing these lists of these are the things to do to make sure you’re in peak condition, and also make sure you’re in peak mental state, and make sure you paid this guy and talked to this guy. I also learned I wanted to do every single thing with this show. I wanted to do payroll; I wanted to know elements of production; I wanted to know how many chairs were in the union catering room.
Just, next time, I don’t need to know all that stuff. I also learned you are only as good as the team around you and we’ve discovered some new teammates over the course of [All In] weekend.”
