Following that huge return, which was received incredibly well by fans, Rhodes appearing on last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
Taking to the mic to open the show, Cody explained why he made the decision to return to WWE, revealing that it wasn’t a difficult one.
The 36-year-old stated that he wants to win the WWE Championship, a title his father never got to win during his time in wrestling.
Rhodes got emotional and started to cry at various points during the promo, particularly when speaking about his father, ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes.
Cody said that while he won’t be able to hand the WWE title to Dusty, following his passing in 2015, he wants to win the title before him, which brought him back to WWE.
The promo was incredibly emotional and real, and was one of the highlights of last night’s episode of WWE Raw.
It was also surreal to see Cody cutting a promo in a WWE ring, six years after his last appearance on an episode of Raw or SmackDown.
There is no word on when WWE is going to have Cody win the title, but based on the promo, it has to be something that they are working towards.
After Cody was done speaking, he was interrupted by Seth Rollins, proceeding to shake hands with his WrestleMania 38 opponent, with Rhodes looking visibly confused throughout this whole process.
There was reportedly some debate about whether or not Cody would open the show last night, with some wanting him to main event, but the decision was made to have him kick things off.
