Cody Rhodes Was Reportedly Not Cleared For In-Ring Return When Royal Rumble Announcement Was Made

WWE has been airing video vignettes of Cody Rhodes’ road to recovery and in-ring return over the past several weeks and this past Monday night on RAW another video vignette was aired, where it showed The American Nightmare training to get back in in-ring shape and towards the end of the video it was said that Cody will be making his in-ring return at the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble Event during the Men’s Royal Rumble Match.

According to, when his Royal Rumble in-ring return announcement was made, Rhodes wasn’t medically cleared to compete inside of a squared circle, but him being announced for the Royal Rumble ahead of time indicates that it is merely a formality and that The American Nightmare will be cleared soon. Cody has been training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando with WWE NXT Stars Joe Gacy and Carmelo Hayes and is said to be ready for his in-ring return.
