David Arquette wanted to have a match in AEW

Former WCW World Champion David Arquette wanted to wrestle former AEW EVP Cody Rhodes.

During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, Arquette talked about how he wanted the match with Rhodes back in 2020 while filming his “You Cannot Kill David Arquette,” documentary.

I was talking to Cody Rhodes about trying to have him in the film, it was right as the AEW stuff was coming together,” he said. “Yeah, I did (pitch a match). I thought it would be so funny like, ‘You disrespected the belt and my dad had it and I’m going to pay him back.'”

That’s one thing that was a little upsetting, especially with AEW because they had all the guys in AEW that were in the movie and I wanted to go and do a match or something to promote the movie and they were like [no]. I think it was TNT, they were like trying to charge me to wrestle,”

It went through like the publicity department to TNT or something and they were like, ‘Well, it cost this to…’ ‘Forget it.’ We were looking to advertise on the shows, at least some form of advertisement within AEW, but they looked at it like, ‘We charge this much for someone to promote in the ring.’ That was a little depressing because I knew a bunch of the guys over there,”
