Cody Rhodes’ departure from AEW shocked many in the wrestling world. Rhodes helped found AEW, but his contract expired last year. He was working as a free agent since. Cody and his wife Brandi were important talent backstage and on-screen as well.

It’s only natural for people to expect that things might not be the same, at least for the couple of days backstage in AEW, following Cody’s exit. After all, he played such an important role in the company both on the ring and behind the scenes since the beginning.

Surprisingly, the reports about Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite tapings suggest otherwise. Everyone Fightful asked told them things were “business as usual.”

One person even said that it was a reminder that this is pro wrestling and life goes on. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary. However, AEW will always honor the existence of Cody, and that is expected.


Regarding Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite tapings, we were told by everyone we asked that things were “business as usual,” with one person noting that it was a reminder that this is pro wrestling and life goes on. Those that we spoke to said that nothing seemed out of the ordinary, and they don’t expect AEW to try to ignore or erase the existence of Cody Rhodes.

Cody’s departure has led many to believe his next destination is WWE, with the reports backing it up too. Some even expect Cody to make an appearance in WrestleMania 38.

While it was expected Cody to be missed backstage turns out, that was not the case, or maybe it’s not what the company wants to show.
