It was reported yesterday that while there is no concrete information either way, the feeling within parts of AEW is that the Cody Rhodes return to WWE could have been scrapped.
Fightful Select reported WWE’s creative team is currently uncertain as to whether Cody is coming in, and a new report from Dave Meltzer suggests the decision is all Cody’s, and wherever he wants to go, he’ll go.

When he and wife Brandi left AEW last month, it was quickly reported Vince McMahon was looking to give Cody a huge push, which would likely involve a big WrestleMania match or segment.
