Why did Cody Rhodes leave AEW to join WWE?

In 2022, Cody Rhodes caused a stir in the pro wrestling world by unexpectedly leaving his position as the Executive Vice President of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and making a surprising return to WWE. His move was a shock to many, and it was unexpected given his previous role in AEW.

After his unexpected exit from the wrestling promotion based in Jacksonville, some fans have speculated that The American Nightmare left due to Tony Khan’s controversial behavior. Tony Khan, the President of AEW, has been known for making controversial comments that often make headlines. However, Cody Rhodes has stated that his departure from AEW had nothing to do with Tony Khan’s behavior.

The American Nightmare left AEW to return to the company where his father, Dusty Rhodes, had left a legacy. He hoped to follow in his father’s footsteps and continue his legacy. In addition, Rhodes revealed in his documentary that leaving AEW allowed him to pursue his biggest dream yet.

The wrestler returned to WWE intending to fulfill his father’s unfulfilled dream. He aspires to win at least one WWE Championship title dedicated to his father, Dusty Rhodes, which he could never capture. This was the dream that led The American Nightmare to leave AEW and return to WWE.
