The WrestleMania 40 Sunday event brought forth a thrilling spectacle, marked by a momentous occasion as Cody Rhodes ascended to the top of the mountain by dethroning Roman Reigns to become the Undisputed WWE Champion.

The American Nightmare’s road to attain championship glory on the Grandest Stage of them all was a long and hard-fought journey that began with his failed stint in WWE that ended in 2016.

Cody Rhodes’ then embarked on a career resurgence, reinventing himself, achieving multiple championships and accolades in promotions like ROH, TNA, and NJPW, and going on to form WWE’s direct competitor, AEW in 2019. Rhodes served as an Executive Vice President and onscreen performer in the promotion.

Moreover, Rhodes’ hard work that led to the success of his company gave an impression to his older brother and current AEW star, Dustin Rhodes that he would not leave the company, as he stated in recent interview with Chris Van Vliet.


“I didn’t actually [think Cody would leave AEW. But I know some stuff that went on. I think it was just his time, he made a smart decision.”

As Dustin Rhodes correctly mentioned, Cody left AEW in 2022 and made his WWE comeback a few months later at WrestleMania 38, which marked the beginning of his story and culminated last weekend at WrestleMania 40 by becoming the man to lead the charge of the era with WWE CCO Paul “Triple H” Levesque at the helm.
