While Cody Rhodes may have made his return to WWE at tonight’s WrestleMania Saturday, his contract had been locked down well in advance.
According to a report from Justin Barrasso, the contract was confirmed by Cody’s PR team, tweeting:
“Cody Rhodes’ team of Hyperion, Spanos Law and Vision PR confirms he is signed to a multi-year WWE deal — and will serve as executive producer to the Dusty Rhodes documentary on A&E”
Cody Rhodes returns to WWE, inks multi-year deal; Set to Executive Produce his late father’s A&E ‘Biography: WWE Legends’ documentary
The most sought-after free agent in professional wrestling, “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes, has landed back at WWE, the company where he began his career. Saturday night, in front of a massive crowd at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Rhodes returned in a main event match with multi-time former WWE Champion Seth Rollins. Rhodes has inked a multi-year deal with the company.
Rhodes began his wrestling career with WWE developmental territory OVW and went on to compete with WWE for a decade before his departure in 2016. Over the past six years, Rhodes has wrestled all over the world including in Japan, England, Mexico, and Canada. In 2018, Rhodes was named Wrestler of the Year by Sports Illustrated. During his first run with WWE, Rhodes became a two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion and won six tag team championships (three World Tag Team Championships and three WWE Tag Team Championships). During his time away from WWE, Rhodes won many top championships including the Ring of Honor World Champion, IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion, ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champion, and most recently the TNT Championship on three separate occasions. His father, the legendary “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, is a WWE Hall of Famer and both Cody and Dusty won NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship titles making them the first father/son combination to win the title.”
Rhodes was revealed as Vince McMahon’s chosen opponent for Seth Rollins on WrestleMania Saturday, going on to put on an intense match that saw Rhodes come out on top, landing three Cross Rhodes on Rollins to pick up the hard-fought pinfall victory.
