• Cody Rhodes Explains Why He Left AEW

During an interview with Variety, Cody Rhodes talked about leaving AEW despite being an EVP in the company.

Below is what Cody said:

“I chose to remain silent about my departure from AEW and I’m going to keep my word on that. There’s no shoot interview. There’s no nefarious tale that’s going to be told.

There were all these different theories and none of them are correct. I mean, there were things about money and creative control. They were printed as fact and it’s been a very difficult two months to see that, when the reality is it was just time.

It was a personal matter and we couldn’t move past it. I have nothing but respect for Matt [Jackson], Nick [Jackson] and Kenny [Omega]. I’m rooting for Tony Khan.

His name is going to be in the history books as someone who helped to bankroll and support this entire alternative and revolution that AEW became but for me, it was just time to move on.

I get an opportunity at my dream, I get another chance at it. And you really can’t leave any stone unturned with that.”

Cody returned to WWE after 6 years at WrestleMania 38 – Night 1, where he defeated former WWE Champion Seth Rollins.
