Vince McMahon has been WWE Chairman since 1982 when he bought WWE from his father Vince Sr and his partners. McMahon saw quite a few changes in his company over the last few decades on top of that. All through that, the WWE Chairman continued to adapt to the changing times. However, many fans now feel that he is out of touch and simply has no idea what is good for a WWE Superstar and their growth. The WWE Chairman is larger than life in many ways and he also has his own oddities and problems as well. He also threatened a WWE star in a recent gym video.
It was announced that Cody and his wife Brandi Rhodes had parted with AEW after working in the company for over three years. This was seen as a shocking move as their departures came out of the left field and many fans expected to see them involved in more storylines as well.
After a lot of speculation, Cody Rhodes finally returned to WWE during WrestleMania 38 in his match against Seth Rollins. He ended up winning the match as well.
Bully Ray recently spoke on Busted Open Radio, where he said that Cody Rhodes was likely able to make demands once he understood Vince McMahon wanted him back.
“At that moment in time, Cody realized, ‘You must want me really bad because you came to my house and talked.’ You didn’t send the jet for me to take me to Stamford [WWE’s headquarters]. You got on the jet and came to my house.’ When you see that, it’s like, ‘Okay, you want me? You want me this bad? Well, I want A, B, C, D.’”
