Cody Rhodes has been accused of being a star at playing politics and of sucking up to Tony Khan by a former AEW personality.
Cody Rhodes was one of the four EVPs that had a hand in the formation of All Elite Wrestling alongside The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. The four men teamed up with Tony Khan who owns AEW while Rhodes’ wife Brandi took up a role as Chief Brand Officer for the upstart organisation.
This was the main reason that the wrestling world was stunned in February 2022 when Cody and Brandi Rhodes confirmed they were leaving AEW with The American Nightmare soon returning to WWE as Seth Rollins’ surprise opponent at WrestleMania 38.
Now speaking on WrestleBinge by Sportskeeda American Top Team supremo Dan Lambert who was never short of an opinion or three on AEW television has explained why he was not a fan of either Brandi or Cody Rhodes:
“He played the politics game better than anybody in history and sucked up to Tony Khan-man and got his way all the time. What the hell is a Chief Brand Officer? What does that even mean other than to feed your ego?”
Cody Rhodes is on his own road to WrestleMania 39 after winning the 2023 Royal Rumble match with his title match in Los Angeles, California now confirmed.
