• Cody Rhodes Says He Didn’t Leave AEW Because Of CM Punk
Cody Rhodes, who was one of the wrestlers responsible for the birth of AEW, left All Elite Wrestling earlier this year, despite being an Executive Vice President in the company.
After leaving, he returned to the company where he first made a name for himself in professional wrestling – WWE.
A fan posted a photo of Cody, Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks on Twitter, and wrote:
“They Changed The World ❤️ 💯”
Another fan then replied:
“Then why did Cody leave?”
Cody saw this tweet and replied:
“I didn’t leave because of the Bucks/Kenny. I’m forever bonded to those men over what we created and I remain very proud of it, and I didn’t leave because of/or have issues with Punk. We got along.
Not money, not booking, just a personal issue and me wanting to go for the big one.”
Another fan then thanked Cody for what he did after leaving WWE in 2016:
“Cody, I remember where I was when I read that you left WWE. What happened next, Impact, ROH, NJPW, it reignited my love for wrestling. Thank you so much, for everything you did for us.”
“Thanks man – it’s only going to get better from here.”
