Cody Rhodes Addresses Contract Rumors

In an emotional post-match interview posted to the All Elite Wrestling YouTube channel, Cody Rhodes has commented on the speculation swirling around him in this “insane week in wrestling,” saying:

“You asked for post-match comments so there’s so many elephants in the room, this is an insane week in wrestling. People think that the Sean Ross [Sapp] story is B.S., it’s not. I am working here without a contract. I’m not even on payroll anymore. I’m working here on a handshake deal.

While the video is posted to the official All Elite Wrestling YouTube channel suggesting some level of kayfabe, it adds a compelling character element within the storyline by breaking the fourth wall in specifically referencing media covering the wrestling world.

Cody Rhodes lost the TNT Championship on the January 26 episode of AEW Dynamite in a brutal ladder match with Sammy Guevara which saw both men in breathtaking high spots from ladders.
