There was a lot of speculation as to where Cody Rhodes would call his home next, following his AEW departure. Many were under the impression he was going to stay in AEW all his life, but that was not the case. Eric Bischoff certainly loved Cody Rhodes’ WWE return.

The American Nightmare finally made his return to WWE after 6 long years at WrestleMania 38 Night One. He had an extravagant entrance, that certainly suited his character.

He squared off against Seth Rollins in a very competitive 20-minute matchup that saw Rhodes become victorious. While speaking on the 83 Weeks Podcast, Eric Bischoff talked about Cody Rhodes’ WWE return. Bischoff simply stated that it was magic.

“Magic, just one word, magic. Everything from the entrance, the match, the post-match production, the visual reactions to the crowd, what element of that entire presentation was not a 10 on a scale of 1-10. I don’t know, I couldn’t pick it out. That was so good, I was so so happy to be able to watch that live. So proud and I reached out to Cody, we connected afterwards and I’m just so proud for him. I really really am.”


Cody Rhodes also has a highly complex, multi-year commitment in his contract. He also had a brief interaction with Seth Rollins on Monday Night RAW this week. We’ll have to see how Rhodes will be booked in the coming weeks.
