Cody Rhodes left AEW back in February and after a lot of anticipation, he made his return to WWE. He squared off against Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38 and ended up winning his return match. Rhodes’ recent promo was also criticized for using a lot of big words.

The American Nightmare then cut a very personal promo on Monday Night RAW this week. As Ringside News exclusively reported, Cody Rhodes’ promo was 100% scripted.

While speaking on the Busted Open podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray talked about Cody Rhodes’ promo. Ray criticized Rhodes for using a lot of big words in his promo.

“When it comes to the younger fans – Cody has a very big vocabulary. Cody will use a lot of big words, a lot of words that we might even have to look up the dictionary just to get the definition. I think with the WWE Universe, Cody should dumb it down a little bit. Keep it very family-friendly, kid-friendly. In AEW, an older crowd, a smarter more sophisticated crowd may be. Use words that the kids don’t have to ask their parents and go, ‘Hey, what does that mean.”


We will have to wait and see whether Cody Rhodes will be able to find a lot of success in WWE this time around or not.
