When Cody Rhodes left AEW, but still Cody Rhodes’ influence on AEW is something he still remember. When Cody Rhodes left AEW and rejoined WWE earlier this year, shocking the wrestling community, he competed against Seth Rollins at “WrestleMania 38.” Many wrestling fans were shocked by the change of events because Rhodes was a founding member and executive vice president of Tony Khan’s fledgling organisation. The 37-year-old noted that he didn’t want to be a “gatekeeper” who would never fulfil his full potential and that he thought he had reached his limit in AEW.

Cody Rhodes’ influence on AEW: Cody’s Thoughts

Rhodes may have left AEW, but he hasn’t lost sight of his contribution to the organisation. Recently, the “American Nightmare” responded on Twitter to a supporter who stated that Rhodes was crucial in starting the promotion. The WWE Superstar agreed with the statement, but he also mentioned other individuals who had contributed to AEW’s early success.

“Facts are all out there to see…without Brandi or I it wouldn’t exist. Look no further than some of the infrastructure in place or even half the names of the events. Tony, Bucks, Kenny, Jericho, Dana, Hang…pioneers. I’ve moved on to the next stage for me, but beautiful memories.” — Cody Rhodes
