• Cody Rhodes Has Reportedly Begun His WWE Work
There was a rumor going on that Cody Rhodes was travelling to Saudi Arabia for today’s WWE Elimination Chamber 2022 premium live event, but that was obviously false.
According to PWInsider, Cody was spotted in Florida at the Orlando International Airport today ahead of his WWE return:
“That syncs with a WWE source that told us on 2/15 that they believed Rhodes may be at the WWE Performance Center this weekend.
The next day, Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated also reported Rhodes was expected at the PC to film promos this weekend.”
Cody’s return to WWE seems imminent. He left the company back in 2016 after being with them for 10 years.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 19, 1968) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1968, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend “The Russian Lion” George Hackenschmidt at the age of 90 due to a Sepsis.
Born in Estonia, George Hackenschmidt became one of the first big names in professional wrestling history and quite a few historians actually consider him to have been one of the best of all time.
Hackenschmidt became the first-ever recognized World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion in 1905, a championship that was the official precursor of what later became the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.
The famous “hack squat” exercise was actually named after him.
In 2016, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
† REST IN PEACE GEORGE HACKENSCHMIDT
