It has been announced that Rhodes To The Top will premiere on September 29th after that week’s edition of AEW Dynamite.
The new unscripted reality show was originally announced on March 24th. The show will follow Cody and Brandi Rhodes as they embark on the next chapter of their lives with the latest edition to the family, Liberty Iris Runnels.
At the time of the original announcement Cody and Brandi said:
“Since the late 1960s, the Rhodes family has been in one spotlight or another. People think they know us, but this show is the first true look behind the curtain and beyond the ring. They’ll see us fail and succeed, but most importantly, they’ll see us bet on ourselves as we travel the Rhodes to the top.”

Cody Rhodes is currently out of action following a shocking defeat to Malakai Black on August 4th. The two men had been on a collision course since Black arrived in AEW attacking the former TNT Champion’s mentor Arn Anderson.
At AEW Homecoming the pair finally met in the ring but it was far from a good night for the second generation star. Cody failed to gain any momentum as Black struck swiftly and accurately. After falling through a table, the American Nightmare just about beat the count to get back in the ring. However, a bemused and beaten Rhodes was greeted by a Black Mass spinning kick which gave Malakai Black the win.
After the match it appeared as though Cody was about to announce his retirement before Black returned to hand out more punishment.
