Update on Cody Rhodes WWE return

According to a new report from Fightful Select, WWE plans for Rhodes to be at the RAW after WrestleMania 38 on Monday, April 4.

It has been noted in the report that WWE sources have indicated that there has been an internal discussion about flying Rhodes in private to avoid the publicity of him popping up at the airport before WrestleMania.

Cody has been very significant to AEW’s overall development and has started the company on its head along with Tony Khan. However, he and his wife Brandi left the company last month.

An unrestricted podcast shows Rhodes mentioning his wish to stay as the EVP of the company until he dies.

“I wanna stay an Executive Vice President of All Elite Wrestling, and I’ve told Tony [Khan] this until I die. This is where I, this is the end of my road. I can’t necessarily go back, the others can change, but I really can’t.” (h/t Sescoops)
