Report: Talk At Raw About Cody Rhodes Possibly Signing With WWE

Is Cody WWE bound?

While Cody Rhodes said as recently as December 2021 that he couldn't see himself anywhere other than All Elite Wrestling, that may no longer be the case.

Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio the three-time TNT Champion has still yet to re-sign with AEW and there was talk backstage at Monday Night Raw about Cody possibly jumping ship to WWE.

"He still has not signed and originally when he had not signed it just seemed like one of those things but now here we are. We're in mid-February, contract was up at the end of December. A lot of talk about Cody Rhodes...before I would say there was minimal possibility that he wasn't going to sign but I would not say that now. I think there is a lot of people who think it is up in the air of what is going to happen next," Meltzer said.

He added: "He is not signed and in WWE they thought there was a good chance or a chance...It was definitely something that was talked about a lot today (Monday) in certain circles about the potential of something happening there."

Cody has been out of contract since his AEW deal expired at the end of 2021. He has been working in AEW on a handshake deal ever since. 

The American Nightmare was a founding member of AEW along with The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Tony Khan in January 2019. He also serves or served as an Executive Vice President of the promotion.
