Cody Rhodes was talking about retirement prior to getting knocked out by Malakai Black. The American Nightmare filmed the Go Big Show, and then a rematch with Black was booked for AEW Grand Slam. The two were already set to battle at Arthur Ashe Stadium, but Rhodes made a surprise return a week early.

Click here for our complete coverage of AEW Dynamite from this week.

Malakai Black cut a promo in the ring during Dynamite, and then he pointed out Rosario Dawson at ringside wearing a Cody Rhodes hoodie.

Dawson jumped the barricade, and security had no issue with this. Just as Black was about to get close to her, Cody Rhodes leaped over the barricade on the other side and he brawled with Malakai Black through the crowd.


This was an unexpected return for Cody Rhodes. We will have to see if he can defeat Malakai Black next week when it really matters.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
