Cody Rhodes has lot of stories to tell, but that doesn’t mean he’s 100% willing to talk about everything he can. Although he was there for some of AEW’s biggest moments so far, that isn’t his focus right now.

Cody Rhodes, one of the AEW founding fathers, frequently finds himself facing questions from the media about his previous wrestling company. Though he has cordially responded to these queries until now, a significant shift could be on the horizon.

In a conversation with Sean Ross Sapp from Fightful, Rhodes openly acknowledged the challenges he encounters when discussing developments in the professional wrestling sphere beyond WWE. The American Nightmare noted that these questions tend to create “more challenges than they offer assistance.”

“We just did that media scrum, and the first question was about something that was not happening here. I think I’m going to (…) not decline, you don’t want to decline or no comment, but I think I’m going to politely tell folks that these questions get me more slack than they do help. I like to answer, but, no heat with WrestlePurists, but they just run these quotes. Picture of you, here’s the quote.”


Cody Rhodes also mentioned that, while he is fond of his AEW run, he wants his focus to be on what he’s doing in WWE now.

“The truth is, yeah, you said it, but you said it in the context of a larger story. I might just say, ‘Hey, I have given my answer about that time, and it really was a wonderful season of my life, ask another question.’ That might be the way to go.” 

Cody Rhodes is coming off a big feud with Brock Lesnar, and he seems to be cruising right now until his next big challenge. The American Nightmare is still one of the biggest babyfaces in WWE, and he certainly has big things in his future.

That being said, considering how much Cody Rhodes has ahead of him, it’s easy to see why AEW is not the first thing he wants to talk about.

Cody Rhodes’ time in AEW is over. Now, fans are left to debate whether his WWE run so far has been better than anything he did in Tony Khan’s company.
