How did Cody Rhodes get his start wrestling?

Ever since he was born, Cody was destined for greatness in the wrestling world. His father, Virgil Runnels (aka Dusty Rhodes), is one of the greatest wrestlers and talkers in the history of the sport. His half-brother, fellow wrestler Dustin Rhodes, is also quite famous for his skills.

In 2006, Cody decided to follow in Dustin's footsteps and join the WWE. After a lot of hard work and proving himself to the organization's higher-ups by becoming a Triple Crown Champion in OVW, he was eventually promoted to WWE's main roster in 2007. Over the next nine years, Cody remained one of the organization's biggest faces.

After requesting his release in May 2016, Cody decided to take to the independent circuit for a while. He wrestled for one year in 2017 with Ring of Honor (ROH) and became a world champion there. After a slew of other titles, his next big move came in January 2019 when he shared that he took on the role of a wrestler as well as the executive vice president of All Elite Wrestling (AEW). While with AEW, Cody became the inaugural AEW TNT Champion, a title he also won the next two years.

"Vince McMahon is going to treat this as a big deal. Everybody I talked to thinks Vince loves the idea of acquiring a co-founder and EVP and, you know, main event wrestler," Wade added. "He just held their secondary singles title not that long ago, and having him show up on WWE TV is something that Vince is very interested in taking advantage of and making money on it. It could even be a situation where Cody is in a major match at WrestleMania."

As of the time of writing, neither Cody nor the WWE has confirmed his return to the organization. However, Wade maintained, "I fully expect Cody to be on WrestleMania either as a wrestler or making his first appearance."

At this point in the game, only time will tell!
