Cody Rhodes has been the talk of the wrestling world since AEW announced he was leaving the company earlier this week. Cody and his wife, Brandi Rhodes, were founding members of Tony Khan’s promotion. Even the AEW locker room was shocked by the news.
Speculation has been running wild ever since the news broke. It was reported that Cody Rhodes has already been in talks with WWE about return. The discourse took a sharp turn when a Reddit post went viral.
The photo allegedly shows Cody Rhodes posing for a photo with a fan at a Polish airport. Reddit user /u/YogoWafelPL shared the photo. It was allegedly taken from a Polish wrestling Facebook group. The thread was removed by moderators for not supplying proof. The photo’s metadata, which often marks a GPS location, was stripped, so the photo could not be verified as authentic. The original poster elaborated on the origins of the picture.
“First of all, this is NOT my photo, I found it on a Polish wrestling Facebook group.
There are two reasons I can think of for Cody to be in Poland professionally – he’s either changing flights and going to Saudi Arabia, or (and that’s very unlikely) he’s going to perform on a Polish wrestling event that takes place tomorrow – however, once again, I do not think that’s likely, seeing as Cody only became a free agent a few days ago and I don’t think the promoter would have the time to book him.
Or, you know, he’s just going on holiday…”
The event the poster refers to is Kinguin Prime Time Wrestling #2 BLACKOUT. That event takes place on February 19. Interestingly, several wrestlers who are well-known to American audiences are scheduled to appear. Matt Sydal, Chris Masters, and Nick Aldis are all booked for the event.
Others have hypothesized that Cody could be on his way to Saudi Arabia to make a surprise debut for WWE. There have been conflicting viewpoints, but many noted that Poland would not be a typical layover for flights to Saudi Arabia that originated in the United States. Either way, we will know by tomorrow whether Cody is in Poland to wrestle there, move on to Saudi Arabia, or is even there at all.
