Cody Rhodes signed with WWE several weeks prior to his appearance at WrestleMania 38. However, the matters were kept very discreet until he finally made his debut.

Rhodes did an interview with The Ringer after his victory over Seth Rollins at WrestleMania Saturday. He was asked who was the first person he called after inking the contract with WWE.

“I didn’t even tell Randy [Orton], I haven’t even seen Randy. I heard he’s a really good guy. It blows my mind. This guy threw a dynamite stick in a lobby in Mexico the first week I met him. Now, he’s a family man? What the hell are we doing? I didn’t tell anyone, I kept it very limited. Only Randy knew, my mom knew, maybe a few others.”

“My cousin works here as a timekeeper, and even he didn’t know. It was the best-kept secret in wrestling but I really wanted to keep everything low-key. WrestleMania is the one time you don’t know what’s happening, and won’t know until you see it. Like when Bryan Danielson won the title at WrestleMania 30, you knew he was going to, but had to wait until the end of the night to see it.”


Rhodes won his debut match against Seth Rollins at WrestleMania Saturday. A day later, he kicked off Monday Night Raw with a promo. After Raw went off-air, he wrestled in a dark match with Kevin Owens.
