Fuego Del Sol has put to rest a rumor that Fuego 2 and Cody Rhodes are the same person.
Fuego 2, the son of Fuego Del Sol, stopped appearing around the same time that Cody Rhodes left AEW for WWE. This timing convinced some people that Fuego 2 wasn’t FDS’s son but actually Cody wrestling under a mask, similar to how John Cena circumvented his expulsion from WWE by the Nexus by wrestling under a lucha mask as ‘Juan Cena’.
In an interview with AJ Awesome, Fuego Del Sol channeled the Sami Zayn/El Generico story by implicating that Fuego 2 is missing and presumed dead. However, like with Generico, this story is meant to be played for laughs.
“RIP to Fuego 2. He went missing, we didn’t know what happened. A lot of people wanted to point out that it was around the same time Cody Rhodes left AEW. I don’t think those two things are related whatsoever, and I don’t know why people like to bring it up. I miss Cody too.
However, my son, Son of Fuego, Fuego 2, went missing, and now I believe he’s presumed dead. If he’s out there, please come home son. I miss you. Your family misses you. We need you back. But if he’s no longer with us, RIP. I’m sure there will be many more Fuegos along the way.”
