Dave Meltzer, recently reported how Rhodes was the other name, apart from Charlotte Flair, who signed contract extensions with WWE around October. However, the situation became complex once Sean Ross Sapp of the Fightful revealed that WWE did send a contract back in October. However, Rhodes is yet to sign the deal.

The details and the length of the contract also remain unknown. Meltzer has also provided the parallels with Charlotte Flair’s contract. He remains suggestive that the contract of the former Intercontinental champion could also turn out to be the same: a long-term deal with a hefty check and many perks.

Rhodes has achieved a lot since his return in early 2022. The inaugural AEW TNT Champion won the Royal Rumble, which granted him the opportunity to main-event WrestleMania 39 against Roman Reigns. Despite being unsuccessful at capturing the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship, he has conquered formidable foes like Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins and Brock Lesnar. Now, he is focused on finishing the story.

Cody Rhodes’ biggest rivals revealed for 2023

The American Nightmare made a triumphant return to in-ring action at the Royal Rumble 2023. His victory allowed him to reignite his rivalry with the Tribal Chief. Despite his best efforts, he came up short at WrestleMania 39. After his loss, his trajectory shifted to proving his worth, which brought him face-to-face with the Beast Incarnate.

Facing each other in a thrilling trilogy of matches, Rhodes managed to best the Beast twice. Eventually, their conflict came to a decisive end at SummerSlam 2023, where they both showed mutual respect. Hence, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that the Beast and the Head of the Table were the biggest rivals of Rhodes for 2023.

Fans have seen Rhodes win the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Titles alongside Jey Uso. He also conquered the Judgment Day at Survivor Series War Games. At this point, he is navigating the treacherous waters of being in a feud with the Japanese star, Shinsuke Nakamura.
