Cody Rhodes left AEW back in February along with his wife Brandi Rhodes. He then returned to WWE after 6 long years and was instantly presented as a huge star. Britt Baker also didn’t believe Rhodes would ever leave AEW.
Fans were taken aback seeing Cody Rhodes leaving AEW. This is because they believed he would remain in AEW for a long time. Fans weren’t the only ones who were surprised either.
While speaking with Fightful, Britt Baker talked about Cody Rhodes leaving AEW. Baker admitted she never thought Rhodes would part ways with AEW.
“From the day he wasn’t at Dynamite anymore, up until the announcement officially got released, obviously, people were saying this and that backstage. Everyone was talking about it, but nobody believed it ‘cause it just seemed so crazy. Even me. I’m like, ‘Maybe, but no. There’s no way. With that being said, Cody, I am so thankful and grateful that I got to work with him when I did. Because when I turned heel, he took me under his wing. I can kind of be more open about this now ‘cause we’re not in the action figure war anymore… Now we’re obviously not in the same company. The Britt vs. Cody mini-feud, issue, whatever, that’s all done.
With that being said, obviously, everyone has their own path, their own journeys, and this is his. He’s definitely gonna be missed as a coach and as an agent in AEW. It was his home. He helped create it. We wish him the best and if you don’t want to be there, you don’t want to be there at the end of the day, too. Better that he’s happy than miserable, if he was miserable, or if he just wanted something different. That’s cool, too.
I don’t know that he was miserable. I don’t think so. If he was miserable, he did a great job of acting not miserable. Let’s just say that. But no, I think it’s maybe something different. Time to move on. Best of luck to him and thank you very much for all your promo help, all your character help, all your help in making Doctor Britt Baker, D.M.D. who she was.”
AEW was also criticised for not having good pro wrestling minds after Cody Rhodes left the company. We’ll have to see how Cody Rhodes will be booked in WWE in the coming weeks.
