The American Nightmare and his wife Brandi recently parted ways with the promotion, and it’s been rumored that WWE is interested in bringing him back. The announcement of his departure left many fans flabbergasted, as he is one of the founding members of AEW.
During the latest episode of the Ric Flair Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast, The Nature Boy stated that he doesn’t know why Cody Rhodes left, but he wishes him the best.
“I don’t have a guess, I just wish him the best of luck and to always hold his head high and remember who he is,” said Ric Flair. “I just think when he left, I’m not sure if you call it good or bad terms, but when he left there were some issues over the trademark issues which there always will be.
Ric Flair added that he texted Cody after his exit, offering him some advice.
“He left and made it on his own and then he and Tony hooked up… I don’t know, without giving you false information, I don’t know why he left,” Flair added. “I can find out, I heard back from him, we texted each other and I just said ‘Be who you are, don’t take any sh*t from anybody,’ that’s what I told him.” (H/T Wrestling Inc.)
