• Why Cody Rhodes Thinks He Beat “The Empire”

WWE owned the “Cody Rhodes” name (which is the reason why Cody Rhodes was only called “Cody” in AEW), but that’s no longer the case.

As we noted earlier, WWE dropped this trademark claim in return of Cody dropping the trademarks for “Slamboree” and “The Match Beyond”.

After last night’s AEW Dynamite went off the air, Cody officially announced himself as “Cody Rhodes” once again.

You can watch it below:

He said the following in his promo on Dynamite:

“You are looking at the man who left the empire, went to war, and actually won, and that pi$$es a lot of people off because the truth that I speak contradicts the lies that a lot of people live.”

The Wrestling Observer noted that this promo was about WWE dropping the trademark of his name to him, which is why Cody thinks he beat the empire.
