Cody Rhodes has been one of the key figures when it comes to building AEW as a brand. He has been with the company since 2018 and has also served there as Executive Vice President, alongside talent in the ring. Now it’s officially out!
None other than AEW’s head, Tony Khan took to Twitter announcing Rhodes’ departure from the promotion. He shared a lengthy post thanking Cody and Brandi Rhodes (who took an exit). Cody’s contract is reported to expire in December 2021, and since the news broke, it has been rumored that he is being watched by WWE for a re-signing.
If we are to believe the reports, Chody Rhodes would be the first to jump ship from AEW to WWE. It has been learned that talks are underway between Cody and Vince McMahon-led promotion, with the latter planning a lucrative contract. Contrary to popular belief, Cody could re-sign with Vince’s brand because he has good relationships with the head of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis.
Let’s see what happens and wait for the next big update!
Meanwhile, sharing a lengthy note on Twitter for Cody Rhodes and Brandi Rhodes, Tony Khan wrote: “Cody and Brandi Rhodes were integral to the launch of All Elite Wrestling. Cody’s prowess coupled with his audacity and his passion for our industry and its love for community outreach helped AEW fulfill our mission to give fans what they’ve been wanting for far too long – something new, innovative and sustainable.”
“I have the utmost respect and appreciation for Cody and Brandi and wish them both the best on leaving AEW. Thank you, Cody and Brandi!” Khan continued.
