At the end of the last episode of Monday Night Raw, Randy Orton was asked to give his opinion on the sensational return of Cody Rhodes to WWE. Randy said: "I have to admit it was special to be in the ring with Ezekiel and Riddle.
As for Cody Rhodes, I have mixed feelings towards him. I don't know yet if I can trust him. He has been back in WWE too recently, after spending several years traveling the world. Only time will let me know if Cody has changed or not." A guest on the latest edition of Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray expressed some doubts about the character of Rhodes: "Cody is recognized as one of the best babyfaces in WWE right now, but there is something that does not convince me.
The way he talks, his tone of voice, his attitude and his words make him sound like a heel. If you also look at his clothes and the way he acts, you can't help but doubt that he is a heel." Jim Cornette also spoke on the subject: "Nobody expected Rhodes to leave AEW to return to WWE.
A lot of people criticized him when he decided to leave WWE six years ago, but it must be admitted that it was the right thing to do."
