Cody Rhodes Reveals Planned AEW Showdown with Sting!

Cody Rhodes, renowned for his impressive wrestling skills and contributions to the industry, left a significant mark on the wrestling world by taking on challenges across various promotions after departing WWE in 2016. His journey took him to England, Europe, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and Ring of Honor, where he solidified his reputation as one of the industry's top talents.

On January 1st, 2019, wrestling fans received exciting news as it was announced that Cody Rhodes, along with The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, would assume roles as Executive Vice Presidents in the newly formed promotion, All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

Rhodes quickly endeared himself to the fans, smashing a throne before facing off against his brother, Dustin Rhodes, a moment that resonated with fans hungry for a fresh alternative to WWE.

However, as 2021 drew to a close, Rhodes noticed a shift in the fans' sentiments towards his all-American good guy character.

Discussions arose regarding a potential storyline that would see him embrace a heel persona. To the surprise of many, Rhodes recently revealed that this narrative arc would have led to a highly anticipated dream match against one of the industry's most iconic figures, Sting.

In an interview with ComicBook, Cody Rhodes opened up about the behind-the-scenes plans had he remained with AEW. He disclosed that a match against his hero, Sting, had been discussed. Despite receiving a tremendous offer from AEW, Rhodes ultimately chose to pursue his first-ever goal – winning the WWE Championship.

Reflecting on the decision, Rhodes expressed his pride in making tough choices as a wrestler, avoiding being stuck in any single direction. As fans eagerly await the release of WWE's newest documentary, "American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes," which chronicles his journey through independent shows and eventual return to the company, Rhodes now finds himself on a path to fulfill his dream of becoming the WWE Champion and honoring his late father's legacy.

Before he can chase the coveted WWE Championship and potentially face Roman Reigns once more, Rhodes must first overcome a formidable obstacle. Set to take place next Saturday, Rhodes will square off against Brock Lesnar, with both wrestlers holding one victory each in their feud, which began on Raw the night after WrestleMania 39.

Cody Rhodes' wrestling journey has been marked by determination, self-discovery, and a relentless pursuit of greatness. As he navigates the wrestling landscape, fans can't help but wonder what future dream matches and accomplishments await this talented wrestler in his continued pursuit of excellence.
