Cody Rhodes left AEW back in February and fans were certainly taken aback by this. Prior to his exit, Rhodes was one of the highlights of AEW television. He helped put over numerous talents during his time there, including stars such as Sammy Guevara, Darby Allin, MJF and many more. Now The American Nightmare is in WWE and he is a babyface. Still, you can never put a heel turn past Cody Rhodes.

Rhodes was booed all the time in AEW toward the end of his run in the company. Fans simply wanted him to turn heel no matter what, but that never happened. Rhodes also does not want to change a thing about that.

While speaking in a new video in celebration of John Cena’s 20th anniversary with WWE, Cody Rhodes revealed what advice Cena gave him when fans started booing him.

“Best advice John Cena ever gave me, twofold. The first thing was rather recently, I was going through a polarizing time in my career. We were getting for the first time in my career a ‘Let’s go Cody, Cody sucks’ type thing and he very eloquently told me to be honest with myself, as to why a crowd would react that way. Look in the mirror, and if you feel you’re doing the right thing, keep doing it.

Second piece of advice is that the crowd starts making any noise, in any capacity, they start clapping their hands, they start stomping their feet. They want you to fight back, something, then you have to reward them.”

Cody Rhodes also thinks he’s the best pro wrestler by a large margin. He is set to square off against Seth Rollins at the WWE Hell In A Cell Premium Live Event. We’ll have to see if he will be able to win the match or not.
