Cody Rhodes is currently one of the most established stars in the world and it didn’t happen in just one day either. Cody Rhodes was also an integral part of AEW for several years before his departure. It seems Cody Rhodes also revealed another why he made his WWE return.
Cody Rhodes suddenly left AEW in February last year and shocked fans in a big way. Before his exit, Rhodes was a standout performer in AEW, helping put over many talent with his solid performances in the ring.
Cody Rhodes was frequently booed in AEW toward the very end of his run with the company. The American Nightmare lost the TNT Title in his last match with the promotion as well.
While speaking to Sports Illustrated, Cody Rhodes confirmed the upcoming Dusty Rhodes episode of A&E’s WWE Legends was another reason why he jumped ship to WWE.
“WWE and A&E memorializing my father in this documentary has been a blessed experience,” says Rhodes. “Helping catalog, correct and bring light to Dusty’s life was a grand responsibility and one of the reasons I returned to WWE. Seeing the facts that support the legend, make this a beautiful watch for old fans and new fans alike.”
The American Nightmare also believes he should not have let certain AEW wrestlers beat him. Cody Rhodes was also unable to defeat Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 and was destroyed by Brock Lesnar on RAW this week. We’ll have to wait and see how WWE will book their feud in the coming weeks.
