Following Cody Rhodes’ AEW departure, fans eagerly waited to see where he would go next. As it turned out, he went back to the place he used to call home, WWE. Rhodes also revealed how Dan Lambert inadvertently made him want to go back to WWE.

Cody Rhodes leaving AEW for WWE was something many people simply could not fathom. Many fans just thought The American Nightmare would just stay in AEW always

While speaking on the Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Cody Rhodes revealed how Dan Lambert inadvertently made him want to go back to WWE.

“Dan Lambert handed me the WWWF Championship, he handed me the title that my dad is holding in that picture from 1977, he handed it to me and in that moment, I felt like that decision was almost made for me. I don’t know if he inadvertently caused this industry-changing moment but there were times when it was, this is what has to happen.


This is what has to happen and what needs to happen. I think we did it with respect and love and it feels like the casual fans, wrestling fans, sports entertainment fans, it feels like the fans get it and that’s really touching. I don’t know how long the honeymoon phase will last but we’re on the beach right now and really truly enjoying it.”

Jim Ross also believes more AEW stars will jump ship to WWE in the future. We will have to wait and see which other AEW stars will join WWE somewhere down the line.
