Cody Rhodes Opens Up About WWE Return & ESPY Nomination WWE

Cody Rhodes has reacted to his WWE return still being in the running for this year’s Best WWE Moment ESPN ESPY award.

Of the original 16 nominated moments, four now remain in contention for the award, with fans able to vote on their favorite moment of the bunch ahead of the ESPYs ceremony.

The final four nominees are:

  • The Undertaker inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame
  • ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin stuns Vince McMahon, Austin Theory and Pat McAfee at WrestleMania
  • Big E cashes in Money In The Bank briefcase and wins WWE Championship
  • Cody Rhodes returns to WWE at WrestleMania

The original field of 16 was narrowed down through previous rounds of voting.

Cody Rhodes has taken to Twitter to open up about what the nomination meant to him. The former AEW EVP noted that he thought the door to WWE would never open for him again, calling his return a giant gamble.

Grateful for the support of his fans, Rhodes tweeted:

Truly a moment I couldn’t envision and a door I thought would never be open again

A gigantic gamble and I went all in, wrestling fans returning that energy and seeing so many people vote for this moment fills my heart up

Damn I love it! Let’s win an ESPY

Rhodes is currently out of action, recovering from surgery after tearing his pectoral muscle. The star notably wrestled Seth Rollins at Hell in a Cell on June 5 with the brutal-looking injury.
