Chris Jericho has revealed his thoughts on Cody Rhodes leaving AEW and the incredible Cody Rhodes Wrestlemania debut at Wrestlemania 38 against Seth Rollins. Chris Jericho and Cody Rhodes main evented AEW Full Gear 2019 and Chris Jericho was one of Cody Rhodes biggest matches in all of AEW.
However, with Cody Rhodes now in WWE, fans are wondering whether or not Chris Jericho will return to WWE any time soon. In a recent interview with Kurt Angle on The Kurt Angle Show, Chris Jericho talked about Cody Rhodes leaving AEW and how how he felt about Rhodes being the first big name to jump from AEW to WWE.
He’s the first, but once again I go back to pat when when Vince Russo left WWE just a month or two after I got there.” Chris Jericho said to Kurt Angle, “And this is when everyone thought that Vince was kind of the head writer and it was a real shake-up. It was very surprising. ‘Russo’s on (WCW Monday) Nitro!’, ‘What? He’s supposed to be… He’s on Nitro? Oh no ,it’s not…’. And Pat (Patterson) said ‘I’ve seen them come and I’ve seen them go. As long as Vince (McMahon) is here and the guys that are here… It doesn’t matter”.
“And Cody was a pillar of our company when we started and a lot of people thought that he was the boss. He wasn’t the boss. Tony (Khan) is the boss. He’s always been the boss. I think maybe the company changed a little bit for Cody over the last few years but I was surprised.”
“I really was! but it’s business, it happens you know. He’s the first big name to leave AEW. He’s not going to be the only big name to leave so he won’t be the only name. (Bryan) Danielson is not going to be the only big name to come from WWE to us so I am a little surprised. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t show up in WWE and he hasn’t yet but it would seem to me that he’s worth a lot to Vince because he’s the first one to go there.”
Cody Rhodes made his WWE return at Wrestlemania 38, using his AEW Theme music, entrance attire and look. It is a far cry from the days of Cody Rhodes as Stardust in WWE and many fans, and Cody himself, hope to see a Cody Rhodes WWE Championship run some time in the near future.
