Report: Cody Rhodes' WWE Return Now "Very Uncertain"

Where will Cody end up?

While Cody Rhodes' return to WWE looked to be a done deal only a few weeks ago, The American Nightmare signing with his former employers is now up in the air. 

Reports noted on Thursday, March 3 that talks between Rhodes and WWE had "fizzled out" and Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has since followed up, reporting that Cody's return is now "very uncertain." 

"His status has changed, in theory. He was on the books in WWE. They had creative laid out for him. They still thought on Friday that they had creative laid out for him. Now, it's very uncertain. They don't know what's going on with Cody Rhodes. They're not sure. They (WWE) thought they had him. It's not like it's dead, it's not like they think they don't have him, but they're not sure," Meltzer said. 

Cody had previously been signed with All Elite Wrestling, founding the promotion with The Young Bucks, wife Brandi, Tony Khan and Kenny Omega in January 2019. Rhodes then served as one of the promotion's EVPs and was a three-time TNT Champion before his departure last month.
