Cody Rhodes Reiterates Why He Left AEW
He has rubbished reports it was about cash and creative
Cody Rhodes has taken to Twitter to reiterate why he left AEW and returned to WWE.
Responding to a (now deleted) tweet from a fan declaring that he would not watch AEW's upcoming Double or Nothing pay-per-view due to Cody's departure, the American Nightmare wrote:
"Full stop: the money and creative story that misguided brudda put out there has already been rebuffed by all parties. I’m proud of my peers/kids there and my accomplishments as competitor/EVP. It was just personal and it was just time to go for the big one."
It is unclear what specific report Rhodes is referring to, but there was much conjecture as to the reason why he was leaving AEW when his exit was announced in February.
Cody has also made sure to praise the company since his departure, as well as encouraging fans to keep watching AEW programming.
Following his AEW exit, Rhodes returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38, facing Seth Rollins. He has since continued to feud with the former Universal Champion and they will face off in a Hell In A Cell Match at the June 5 pay-per-view.
