The current AEW TNT Champion is a free agent. That being said, Cody Rhodes has been a free agent since the end of 2021. At this time there is no update on his contract status.
What could this mean for the company? For starters, they have to trust that he isn't going anywhere because of his current status as TNT Champion. He won that championship on Christmas Day against Sammy Guevara on the last episode of Rampage in 2021.
Additionally, Rhodes will be returning to AEW this week after missing a few weeks. He was out due to pending medical clearance. In that time period, Sammy Guevara became the interim TNT Champion. That surely means a matchup between those two is around the corner again.
But what will be in store for Cody Rhodes after that? Only time will tell. It truly does not look like he would leave, but never say never in this industry. Keep your eyes peeled for his next move. Make sure to follow along with us at On Tap Sports Net for news and updates as well.
