Cody Rhodes is one of the mainstays of AEW television and an integral part of the company behind the scenes as well. Rhodes has certainly honed his craft over the years in numerous ways. It seems there might still be a chance Cody Rhodes could sign with WWE.
For the past few months, Cody Rhodes has been on the receiving end of a lot of hate from fans. Fans showered boos on him during every appearance and called for him to turn heel. This teaser could be a heel move, but then again, CM Punk did the same thing too.
As reported earlier, it was said that Cody Rhodes is apparently working as a free agent as his contract with AEW had retired last year. Cody Rhodes himself confirmed his free agency status.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, there are those in WWE who believe Cody Rhodes might sign with WWE.
“He still has not signed (with AEW), and originally when he hadn’t signed, it just seemed like one of those things, but now here we are – we’re in mid-February, the contract was up at the end of December, or maybe January 1.
“But yes, a lot of talk about Cody Rhodes, and it is probably best said that… before, I would say that there was minimal possibility that he wasn’t gonna sign (with AEW), but I would not say that now. I think there’s a lot of people that think that it is up in the air of what is going to happen next. So he’s a big name free agent right now.
There are conceivably other shows. He’s gonna make money either way. It’s the same thing that I’ve told other guys. It’s like, really, you’ve got no bad decisions. You’ve got two choices of good decisions, and in his case, that’s the situation.
At this point, I’m presuming that I’m not gonna hear from him until the decision’s made and he wants it out. He’s got two shows on WarnerMedia, he’s got Rhodes To The Top and he’s got Go Big Show which is filming. And Rhodes To The Top was renewed for a second season, so that is a good reason to stay with the WarnerMedia family.
But at the same time, he has not signed, and in WWE, they thought that there was a good chance, or a chance, something. It was definitely something that was talked about today in certain circles – about the potential of something happening there.”
