Cody Rhodes’ WWE return surprised some, but it excited a lot more than that. He was supposed to be on SmackDown this week, but plans might have changed.

We previously reported that Rhodes was on the schedule for SmackDown this week. That seems to have changed, because PW Insider has now changed their previous report to indicate that he is no longer listed.

We reported yesterday that Cody Rhodes was slated for tonight’s Smackdown taping, also likely for a dark match. This morning, we were told that is no longer the plan and Rhodes is not expected for the taping.  

Rhodes had a great time on RAW this week where he delivered a promo that Ringside News exclusively confirmed was 100% scripted. It still got the job done and started him off in a great way on the red brand.


Fans might have to wait a bit longer to see Rhodes on the blue brand, but Seth Rollins is still seemingly on the lineup.

Keep checking back with Ringside News for more updates!

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
