We’re getting closer to the road to WrestleMania’s start, and it seems that WWE has their eye on Cody Rhodes. Now we have even more assurance that the American Nightmare will be part of the show of shows.

Cody Rhodes has been out of action after torn pectoral muscle that required surgery. It appears that WWE is already making plans for his return to the ring.

Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that Cody Rhodes’ likeness was used for WrestleMania 39 promo work. It was not noted if Rhodes was present himself for the shoot, but this was part of WWE’s shooting this week in Los Angeles for WrestleMania 39.

WWE filmed a commercial Thursday in Los Angeles that featured Cody Rhodes (or at the very least someone dressed up exactly like him) and the Miz locking up on a Los Angeles bridge. We’re told that Maryse was supposed to be in attendance as well, though we aren’t sure if it was for a specific commercial spot or just to be there. In addition, Triple H and Bad Bunny were both in town, as Triple H has posted a picture with him.


It was also reported that “WWE fully expects to have Cody Rhodes back in time for WrestleMania, which we were told by company sources was never really in doubt.” It was not noted what kind of match they have in mind for the American Nightmare.

We’ll have to see when Cody Rhodes makes his way back to WWE. Obviously, he has a lot of fans who will be pulling for him to keep going with the same momentum he was on when he had to take time off after Hell in a Cell.

What’s your take on Cody’s WWE return? Sound off in the comments!
