• Cody Rhodes Reportedly Couldn’t Turn Down WWE’s Offer
Cody Rhodes shocked the world by leaving AEW, as he played a major role in kickstarting the company.
There could be another huge shocker on the way, if he ends up returning to WWE – which he is expected to do.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE presented Cody with an offer that he couldn’t turn down:
“Some close to the situation believed he got such a big offer from WWE after becoming a free agent that he couldn’t turn it down.
But there is still the unanswered question of why his contract wasn’t rolled over because legally (Tony) Khan did have control to prevent this from happening.
Khan had done so for every other person whose deal had that option clause and thus couldn’t negotiate for a WWE deal if they wanted to test the outside market.
Both Khan and the Rhodes family had agreed not to comment on the reasons for the split.”
