One of the most highly anticipated WWE returns of 2023 has to be The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of Rhodes ever since June 2022.
However, the newest hint dropped this week on Monday Night RAW clearly indicates that Cody will indeed return to WWE. The return will most likely happen at the upcoming Royal Rumble event.
After having a major career resurgence in various wrestling promotions, The American Nightmare made his shocking return to WWE at WrestleMania 38, defeating the Drip God Seth Rollins.
Furthermore, Rhodes came back to WWE after six years as a megastar of the wrestling world due to his exceptional work outside the company.
Moreover, fans and critics believed that Cody Rhodes would be inserted into the main event scene right away. Things were looking to go his way until a torn pectoral muscle right before WWE Hell in a Cell derailed Rhodes’ rise to the top.
Despite a horrific injury, Cody Rhodes delivered an exceptional performance against Seth Rollins inside the steel structure and left with his head held high to recover from his injury.
For months and months, he has been heavily rumored to make his return as a surprise entrant in the 2023 Royal Rumble match.
