Cody Rhodes has become one of WWE’s top stars ever since he returned to the company after leaving AEW. At AEW, he was one of the co-founders and Executive Vice Presidents. Many people believe he left AEW as he didn’t like the direction the company was headed it, and understood that they would fail at some point.
Cody Rhodes Praises Dominik Mysterio and Looks Forward to Seeing Him Perform
Recently, Shawn Michaels, who is the Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative, hailed Dominik Mysterio as the company’s 2023 MVP.
Dominik is currently part of The Judgment Day. Cody Rhodes was asked to share his opinion on Dominik being hailed as that. "Dom is a prickly individual, but if I was looking at it from tickets sold, merch sold, excitement over matches, genuine body of work, I'd say your MVP is, I'm not gonna say myself, but I'd say Seth Rollins, the World Heavyweight Champion, is probably somebody who's more of an MVP," Rhodes said.
"Who am I to go against what Shawn Michaels said though? If Shawn Michaels sees something in Dominik Mysterio, that's huge because he's not one that often will make that claim. Dom, as difficult as he is to get along with, he is incredibly linked to the audience.
He walks out now, he puts the mics to his lips, and you can't hear a word he's saying because they boo him out of the building. I have a sense that Dom will be getting that same reaction two or three years from now, but they won't be boos, they'll be cheers.
There is something incredibly special about the young man." Cody had some extremely tense interactions with Dominik on-screen, several times. Cody stated that he is looking forward to seeing what the Dominik, who held the NXT North American Title at one time, will do as the years progress.
Dominik could go on to become one of WWE’s top heels. So far, it doesn’t look like he will be a babyface, anytime soon. So far, Dominik’s efforts have not gone unnoticed by fans or the WWE creative team. Ever since he started performing he has been praised by WWE Hall of Famer, Booker T as well, and it is not easy to impress Booker T, who is still regarded as one of the most intelligent wrestling personalities in the world right now.
