Cody Rhodes on if he will go back on his word and challenge for AEW World Title. The American Nightmare is yet to win the world title at AEW.
Cody Rhodes challenged Chris Jericho for his AEW World Championship at Full Gear back in 2019. The American Nightmare declared that he would never pursue the title again if he failed to overcome Jeicho at the pay per view. This would be his first and last shot at the World Championship.
Jericho went on to beat him at the pay per view and Rhodes has continued to keep his word to this day. While speaking with Carton & Roberts, Rhodes admitted that he was tempted to challenge for the title once again but hoped to never need the championship.

“Ultimately, that decision will rest on Tony Khan. I’m going to stick to my word. It’s the easiest heel turn in the history of wrestling if I were to break my word, but I love that we are disciplined and conservative and we’re presenting wrestling backward from the big events to every little detail.”
“I don’t want to sound braggadocious or egotistical, but my goal is to never need the World Championship. Yeah, it sucks to watching Kenny Omega or Jon Moxley with the title when I consider myself the 1A of the group, but I gave my word.”
He may have failed to conquer the World Championship but he was the innaugral TNT Champion. He is also the first two-time champion in the title’s young history. Rhodes dropped the title to Darby Allin at lasr year’s Full Gear.
