Britt Baker has discussed the impact Cody Rhodes had on her career, recalling the backstage reaction to his AEW departure.
Following AEW’s announcement that Cody & Brandi Rhodes were leaving the company on February 15, numerous AEW names took to social media to wish the duo well.
Speaking with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Baker noted that there were rumors floating around the locker-room before AEW officially announced that Cody had left.
Grateful for Cody taking her under his wing early in her AEW career, Baker said:
“From the day he wasn’t at Dynamite anymore, up until the announcement officially got released, obviously, people were saying this and that backstage. Everyone was talking about it, but nobody believed it ‘cause it just seemed so crazy. Even me. I’m like, ‘Maybe, but no. There’s no way.
“With that being said, Cody, I am so thankful and grateful that I got to work with him when I did. Because when I turned heel, he took me under his wing. I can kind of be more open about this now ‘cause we’re not in the action figure war anymore… Now we’re obviously not in the same company. The Britt vs. Cody mini-feud, issue, whatever, that’s all done.”
Rhodes would return to WWE at WrestleMania 38, revealed to be Seth Rollins’ mystery opponent. The two stars will meet in a rematch at WrestleMania Backlash.
Britt Baker last wrestled at St Patrick’s Day Slam in March, when she lost her AEW Women’s Championship to Thunder Rosa.
