Cody Rhodes' return to WWE after a six-year absence left everyone in awe. 'The American Nightmare' appeared at WrestleMania 38 to general amazement and took away the satisfaction of beating a champion like Seth Rollins in the most important event of the year.
In the next episode of Monday Night Raw, the 36-year-old from Marietta expressed a desire to become a world champion in the future. The former AEW star defeated Rollins again at WrestleMania Backlash, the latest WWE pay-per-view staged in Providence.
Their feud has continued and the third meeting between the two will take place in Hell in a Cell next month. In the latest edition of his now-famous podcast, Jim Cornette praised Cody's ability to record credible promos.
Jim Cornette praises Cody Rhodes
“Cody Rhodes is by far the best WWE superstar when it comes to recording a promo. Unlike many other athletes, he has the ability to look natural and not look at the camera while he is talking”- explained Jim Cornette.
"He looks at the interviewer or interviewer and interacts with him/her, which makes him much more credible than most of his colleagues. Other superstars should learn from him” - he added. Jim also talked about The Undertaker: “Putting him into the WWE Hall of Fame was the right decision.
If there was anyone who deserved to join the HOF in a short time, it was Taker. I didn't find anything controversial about it. I think Vince McMahon wanted to make the fans understand that the Gravedigger will never go back to fighting."
The discussion then moved on to Shane McMahon: “Various rumors are starting to circulate about his possible arrival in AEW. While there may have been some disagreements with Vince McMahon and the WWE, I don't see how Shane can go to work in a rival federation.
He doesn't even need the money, so I would rule him out”. The Stamford company is slowly getting back on top after suffering the effects of the pandemic. On the most recent episode of WWE's The Bump, Adam Pearce discussed the impact The American Nightmare has had since returning to the company.
Pearce, who is now Director of Live Events at WWE, said that Cody is more confident as a wrestler than he was in his initial run with the company: "When I first joined WWE, Cody was still here. Then obviously he went away for a period of time and the Cody that I am seeing now back is a completely different person. I am seeing more confidence, I'm seeing a performer who is 1000 percent sure of himself."
