Cody Rhodes made his return to WWE after six years away back at WrestleMania 38, and he has outlined his intentions to capture the WWE Championship during his second run with the company.
Cody’s brother Dustin Rhodes still works for AEW, and recently spoke about his brother’s departure from the company on The Sessions with Renee Paquette.
Dustin said that, although he already misses his brother, he’s happy for him, and is cheering him on to win the title.
“I was happy for him but I also miss him already, I miss him being there but I know he’s young. Go do your thing. I’m very happy for him, I’m like, ‘hey man, more power to you, go and get that title. Win it all and do your stuff.’”
Dustin himself left WWE back in 2019, and his first match outside of the company was a brother vs brother match at AEW Double or Nothing, which has gone on to become a classic match.
Dustin spoke about the match, but vowed that he will never again wrestle his brother.
“I’ll never do it again, I’ll never wrestle him again, it did a lot to me that night. Right when I left [WWE], I was kind of like ‘oh god, what do I do?’ I was tired, I lost my passion, and that night I recaptured it. It was a very special night, probably the most special night I had so far in the business. The stars aligned, everything was perfect for it, it was story driven, compelling, and everything you could possibly want from an audience to enjoy. All the emotions, crying, happiness, bleeding. [The blood] was a little excessive that night.”
Cody is currently undefeated since his return to WWE. For a list of all win/loss records from the WWE men’s roster in 2022, click here.
