Matt Hardy 'Happy' For Cody Rhodes After WWE Return

Matt Hardy shares his thoughts on Cody Rhodes' WWE return.

On a recent episode of his podcast, The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy, the AEW star talked about his feelings regarding Cody Rhodes' return to WWE, stating:

"I thought it was done really well [...] I'm happy for him. I've always had a very good relationship with Cody. I spent a lot of time with Cody, obviously, during the pandemic era. We were stuck in Jacksonville and we would do a lot of Dynamite. We would also tape the next day Dynamite for the following week. Tony Khan was looking at a lot of footage and content at that time. We were doing hours upon hours of Dark, I mean sometimes we would be in Daily's Place till 3 in the morning. [...] So there was a lot of time that I spent with all the AEW guys, the guys in the very beginning of AEW. [...] So I actually grew really close with Cody during that time.

"It always sucks to see someone leave, especially when you're buddies with them. You work together, you're acquaintances, and then you have a great relationship - but also you're happy for them whenever they go somewhere else and they're gonna be successful. It's kind of like they get a new lease on life, and you have to do that in wrestling. I feel like I'm a prime example of that. You can't stay in one place for too long."
