Backstage News On When Word Of Cody Rhodes’ AEW Exit Reached The AEW & WWE Locker Rooms


WWE wound up taping last Friday night’s episode of SmackDown on February 11th due to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view taking place in Saudi Arabia.

According to a report from Fightful, word was already making the rounds in the AEW locker room by February 11th that Cody and Brandi Rhodes would be departing the company. This is the same day WWE taped two episodes of SmackDown.

While most of the AEW roster was already aware of Cody’s status, many in the WWE locker room hadn’t heard about it by then. Following the weekend, there was “a little chatter” about it backstage at the Monday, February 14th WWE RAW TV tapings.

Tony Khan, Cody Rhodes, and Brandi Rhodes released their statements the following day on Tuesday, February 15th.
