When All Elite Wrestling was first announced back in 2019 both Chris Jericho and Cody Rhodes were faces at the forefront of the company, but times have certainly changed in recent weeks. Cody Rhodes parted ways with AEW, but he recently got the wrestling world talking when he made his big return to WWE at WrestleMania.
Chris Jericho and Cody Rhodes previously feuded over the AEW World Championship, and during an appearance on Busted Open Radio he admitted that he was disappointed that Cody left All Elite Wrestling.
“I was honestly disappointed that he left. But, I get it. I’ve done it many times myself. You know this, we’ve discussed the reinvention of Jericho many times. I mean, I left WWE in 2017 for basically the same reason why Cody left AEW, from what I understand. He just didn’t think he was getting the – I don’t know if it’s the spotlight or the respect or whatever the word being, but you could kind of see the writing on the walls.
“Obviously now, Cody is as bigger than he’s ever been just by changing companies. And obviously, they did a great job in putting him over at WrestleMania, bringing him in at the highest of levels, and now it’s up to Cody to do the dirty work shall we say and continue that momentum and get that job done. And can he do it? Absolutely. He’s a very smart guy. He’s a great performer.”
Cody Rhodes will be in action tonight when he faces The Miz in his first match on Raw in 6 years. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
