Cody Rhodes Says He Made The Wrong Decision Boxing Himself Out Of The AEW World Title

Cody Rhodes left AEW back in February, and fans were certainly surprised by this. Prior to his exit, Rhodes was one of the highlights of AEW television as well as an EVP. He would end up signing with WWE shortly after.

While speaking on the latest episode of Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Cody Rhodes admitted that he made bad political decisions in AEW.

I was very active and I did start a department, a community department. Brandi did bring Kulture City into the wrestling and sports entertainment space. So, we were very active in terms of all the facets and assets of that gig. But, I think that job was meant for — we wanted a wrestling company brought to you by wrestlers. For sure, that’s a huge part of the mission — but maybe it would’ve been better served for me at age 45 than it did at age 33 or whatever it was.

I am just now entering the prime of my career. So to make political decisions like boxing myself out of winning a world championship, those decisions in hindsight were not the correct decisions and what I should’ve been doing.
