Cody Rhodes is a slightly distorted character in AEW. Those in the Nightmare family love Cody, but others are not big fans. Although they collect their share of booze, they depict a child’s face on television. At this point Cody Rhodes is not his intention to turn the heel.
Rhodes is the EVP of AEW and he has his own reality television show. Keeping him babyface makes complete sense, as some people want to tune in to see a bad guy’s reality television show with his wife.
While chatting Brian Jones of pop culture, Cody made it clear that he will not turn the heel anytime soon. Rhodes does too much community coverage to be the bad guy on television.
“It will disappoint many, and it probably won’t. It’s exciting, but two things I can promise you. And I’m not saying this to shake one hand but you don’t see the other hand. I’m saying this from a very honest standpoint. Before I do that, I retire, now I am the head of a community group, I have a little girl, I don’t go on heel stuff on TV, I don’t turn a heel, and I don’t go back to talk for the title. But it happened, and I can live with it. And I had to do that dance with Chris Jericho, and I personally wouldn’t go back to that provision. Tony, if he wants to change things, he can. I think the idea that it hurts and challenges for a world title, I can say it never will.
Cody Rhodes himself is a sideline at AEW. Arn Anderson made headlines when he cut the “Glock Promo” at AEW Dynamite last week, leaving Cody in the ring after calling him a loser. We’ll have to see what happens next in American Nightmare, but it’s not good to expect a heel turn.
