After a hiatus of six years‚ Cody Rhodes has made his WWE return at WrestleMania 38. After leaving All Elite Wrestling in 2016‚ the former champion dominated the competition. He was an executive vice president of the company‚ and co-founded All Elite Wrestling along with Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. They reportedly parted ways in February 2022 after failing to come to a contract. The rematch is an intriguing one: while Rhodes was a former star in AEW‚ he hasn't appeared in a major WWE show since 2016. The sudden appearance of an unnamed opponent at WrestleMania is a sign of how WWE is trying to build a brand new one. The company can use Cody's star power to make him one of its highest-profile stars. Following his WrestleMania 38 match‚ Rhodes tweeted‚ Wrestling is love. It was a powerful and emotional return for the former All-American Wrestling star. During his match against Seth Rollins‚ there were tributes to Dusty Rhodes and Stardust. Though he left the AEW company to focus on his family and his career‚ WWE has yet to announce what his future plans are. Before his highly anticipated return‚ the WWE announced that he will face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38. The former All-American Wrestling superstar has been away from the company since 2016‚ but his sudden return at WrestleMania is an incredible surprise for fans. He hasn't competed in a WWE ring since 2016 and was one of Vince McMahon's handpicked opponents for Rollins. After leaving AEW in May 2016‚ Rhodes spent six years working as a star for Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling. He also helped launch AEW‚ but he left the company in February. He reportedly signed a new deal with WWE‚ which will keep him on RAW. He is scheduled to face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38. Despite the long wait‚ the announcement was a great surprise for fans. After losing to Zack Ryder in May 2016‚ Cody Rhodes has been a member of the indies since. He has reportedly signed a new contract with WWE in the last three weeks‚ and is scheduled to be on the RAW roster as a regular moving forward. The news of his return is exciting‚ and his return to the wrestling world will surely be worth watching. The news was welcomed by AEW fans‚ who are delighted to see their beloved Stardust returning to the WWE. The announcement was met with mixed reactions from both sides. While some fans were stoked for a new title‚ others were more disappointed that they had to wait until 2024 before getting to know Cody Rhodes.
In the end‚ the hype is worth it. Although the news was welcomed‚ AEW fans will be glad to see their former superstar return to the WWE after six years. This is a win-win situation for both parties. In AEW‚ Rhodes was introduced as The American Nightmare and used the theme music from the movie Kingdom to make his entrance. In the WWE‚ he was introduced as 'The American Nightmare'. Despite his lackluster performance in AEW‚ Seth Rollins repeatedly failed to secure the match. After his WrestleMania 38 match‚ Cody Rhodes' Twitter account tweeted: Wrestling is a love story. After the match‚ he went on to tweet about his emotions‚ expressing his feelings for the WWE. He was welcomed back to his hometown of San Antonio‚ Texas as the first person from his new country. It is a major milestone in his career. After an AEW debut‚ the American Nightmare made his WWE debut. A brief interview with AEW chairman Vince McMahon on the company's website was the catalyst for the announcement. As the AEW champion‚ Rhodes was a vital part of the ring in the early 1990s‚ and his return at WrestleMania 38 was highly anticipated.
