The sister of former AEW EVP Cody Rhodes has dropped a heavy hint that The American Nightmare is imminently WWE-bound.
Cody Rhodes became wrestling’s hottest free agent in late 2021 after his AEW contract expired. While the three-time TNT Champion continued to wrestle for the company into the new year, he eventually announced that he and his wife Brandi had left AEW on February 15th.
After weeks of speculation on Cody Rhodes’ future, it was reported on March 18th that Rhodes had finally put pen to paper on a deal that will see him return to WWE for the first time since 2016.
Now Rhodes’ sister Teil has taken to social media to tease what is next as she shared a picture of a young Cody with their father, ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes, adding:
“I knew my old man best and I know he would be beaming with pride if he could see what’s next.”

Cody and Teil’s father WWE Hall Of Famer Dusty Rhodes worked for WWE for many years, latterly as an integral behind-the-scenes part of the NXT brand. Rhodes worked as part of the black and gold brand up until his untimely death in June 2015 at the age of 69.
A recent report has suggested that when Rhodes does make his WWE debut it will be as part of the Raw brand and also given an indicative date as to when WWE fans will see Rhodes back in action for the company where he previously held the Intercontinental and Tag Team Championships.
