During his time with AEW, Del Sol frequently appeared on Sammy Guevara’s vlog and had on-screen interactions with Cody Rhodes. The two even teamed up for four matches at the end of 2021, with Rhodes adopting the ‘Fuego II’ moniker.
In a recent interview with Nick Hausman, Del Sol discussed his relationship with Rhodes and acknowledged that things became more challenging for him in AEW after Cody left the company in early 2022.
“I feel like I have to preface this by saying that Cody Rhodes was a huge help to me when he was there. So the second Cody Rhodes left, I knew things were going to be a little bit more difficult. Cody was a middle man in a lot of ways, but he believed in me and I don’t feel like I ever got that same type of belief from Tony Khan that I got from Cody Rhodes. So, it became more difficult when he left. I had to try and use QT, but QT has aspirations of his own and I get it. He’s having to balance everything, he’s in there with Tony Khan when all of these guys are coming in and pitching ideas, he knows how Tony thinks. He would talk to me and maybe calm me down if I was upset or open my eyes if I was confused, so shout out to QT in that respect. But when Cody left, it was much harder to get clear answers I feel like, or at least direct information from Tony Khan unless it was from QT.”
