Cody Rhodes made his return to WWE on Saturday night at WrestleMania 38,
coming back to the promotion that he famously exited nearly six years ago.
In that time, Rhodes has wrestled all over the world and was integral to the founding of All Elite Wrestling (AEW),
the rival wrestling promotion run by Tony Khan. Rhodes was a top star onscreen and an executive vice president offscreen in AEW,
but he left the company in February 2022 after failing to come to terms on a new contract.
In an interview with Variety in the days leading up to WrestleMania, Rhodes said his dream is still to do what his father
the legendary Dusty Rhodes — never did. He won’t say it out loud for fear of jinxing it,
but Rhodes has his eyes on the WWE Championship. Dusty fought for the title in 1977 at Madison Square Garden
against Superstar Billy Graham for what was then the WWWF title but never won it.
