Sign him up. The wrestling world has changed a lot in recent years, with the rise of AEW being the main cause. The new promotion has allowed for several changes, including a new place for wrestlers to go. Several wrestlers have moved over to the company, which started with a rather talented core of wrestlers. Now though, one of them does not have a contract with the company.
According to Fightful Select, AEW TNT Champion Cody Rhodes is currently working without a contract, making him a free agent. Rhodes’ deal expired at the end of 2021, meaning that his deal was different than some of the company’s original three year contracts. Rhodes is still an Executive Vice President with the company and there is nothing to suggest that he will be leaving AEW anytime soon.
Opinion: I cannot imagine Rhodes going anywhere, as he is one of the founding fathers of AEW and someone who has been pushed rather hard since the company was founded. AEW certainly seems comfortable with keeping him at this level without a deal so it isn’t like things seem that bad at the moment. If both sides are happy with everything, I don’t see how this is a huge problem.
What do you think of the situation? What is next for Rhodes? Let us know in the comments below.
