Cody Rhodes left AEW for WWE, but that doesn’t mean he burned every bridge. After all, it’s always good to keep connections in any business, and that is very true in pro wrestling as well.

The Young Bucks stuck around AEW and they are still featured performers. As EVPs for the company, there were also some rumors that the Bucks and Cody Rhodes didn’t really get along near the end of Cody’s time with the company.

While speaking to Sean Sapp, Cody Rhodes opened up a bit about his relationship with the Young Bucks. He confirmed that there is still communication between the two sides.

For years, there were questions and rumors regarding the nature of Cody Rhodes friendship with Matt and Nick Jackson and Kenny Omega. Particularly Cody not being involved in BTE and on screen angles with the three for a large portion of his time at AEW.


At the red carpet of Cody Rhodes’ new Peacock documentary in Atlanta, Fightful was able to get some clarity on that. We asked if Cody still spoke with the Bucks and without hesitation, Cody confirmed that he does fairly regularly. He said that without them graciously allowing BTE footage in his documentary, that it probably couldn’t have happened. He said that even if he never shares a ring with the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega again, they’re bonded for life due to what they did together

It was also noted that the outlet, “spoke to Cody about a variety of things, including leaving AEW, Triple H’s and the throne smashing and more.” We will have to see how much the American Nightmare opens up.

We will have to see what Cody Rhodes does next in WWE. He has a big match against Brock Lesnar in the pipeline, and that match will likely be a SummerSlam standout.
