• Backstage News On Cody Rhodes’ Character In WWE
Former WWE Champion Seth Rollins will face a mystery opponent chosen by Vince McMahon at tonight’s WrestleMania 38 Saturday.
This mystery opponent is rumored to be Cody Rhodes, who signed with WWE last month and will be returning to the company after 6 years.
According to WrestleVotes, there have been some discussions backstage about keeping Cody’s character the same as the one he had in AEW:
“Two very high profile people were adamant to the boss that if (when) Cody Rhodes arrives, he should be exactly what he was in AEW.
Presentation, ring gear, theme music, pyro, etc. The visual impact of the ‘American Nightmare’ crossing the line is significant here.”
Teil Rhodes, Cody’s sister, recently tweeted the following:
“I knew my old man best and I know he would be beaming with pride if he could see what’s next.”
