Welcome back? There are a lot of names on the AEW roster and the company has added a lot of them over their still fairly short history. That being said, there are going to be some names who are just bigger stars than others. Some of these names do not appear on every show, but now we know when we are going to be seeing one of them again after his latest hiatus.
During this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, Cody Rhodes was announced for a match against Malakai Black at AEW Grand Slam on September 22. Rhodes has been absent from AEW television since August 4, when Black defeated him on Dynamite. This also comes after Rhodes finished filming the latest season of the Go Big Show, where he serves as one of the show’s judges.
Rhodes is a big deal. Check out who is coming back for a rematch:
Opinion: Rhodes might not be everyone’s favorite wrestler, but there is no denying that he is a big star in the company. Throw in the fact that he is one of the Executive Vice Presidents and he should be up near the top of the card. Rhodes vs. Black II should be a heck of a match, though it would be nice to see Rhodes not get his win back here. There is something to the idea of Black being able to stop him twice, and that may be what we see.
What do you expect from Rhodes’ return? How will the match go? Let us know in the comments below.
