Dan Lambert May Have Inadvertently Caused Cody Rhodes’ Decision To Return To WWE

Cody Rhodes made his return to WWE at WrestleMania 38 when he was Vince McMahon’s hand-picked mystery opponent for Seth Rollins.

On the latest episode of “Out of Character with Ryan Satin,” Cody Rhodes talked about his decision to return to WWE. During the interview he revealed that Dan Lambert may have inadvertently been the one who caused his decision.

“Dan Lambert handed me the WWWF Championship, he handed me the title that my dad is holding in that picture from 1977, he handed it to me and in that moment, I felt like that decision was almost made for me. I don’t know if he inadvertently caused this industry-changing moment but there were times when it was, this is what has to happen.”

“This is what has to happen and what needs to happen. I think we did it with respect and love and it feels like the casual fans, wrestling fans, sports entertainment fans, it feels like the fans get it and that’s really touching. I don’t know how long the honeymoon phase will last but we’re on the beach right now and really truly enjoying it.”
