Welcome back. AEW has been a complete game changer in the wrestling industry and that is a good thing. Above all else, it is offering wrestling fans a new top level wrestling promotion and a lot of that is due to the roster. The company has a great mixture of talent available and some of them are already established names. One such name made his return this week.

This week’s AEW Dynamite saw the return of Cody Rhodes after a month’s long absense. Rhodes made his return to save actress Rosario Dawson from Malakai Black, who was threatening Dawson as she sat in the crowd. This comes after Black attacked Rhodes several weeks ago and put him on the shelf. Rhodes and Dawson are both judges on the Go Big Show. Black and Rhodes will face each other in a rematch next week at AEW Grand Slam.

It should be a good one. Check out a clip from the segment plus some of their better moments in AEW:

Opinion: I’m a bit surprised that they had Rhodes come back before the amtch but it was a heck of a segment and return. Having Dawson involved even gave them a bit of mainstream expose and that is something AEW could certainly use. This is one of the more personal stories in AEW at the moment and if they can get some kind of a crossover with the Go Big Show out of it, good for them.
