AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes is a former WWE Superstar. The son of WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, the younger brother of Dustin Rhodes has had a lengthy career that continues to flourish in All Elite Wrestling.

Prior to helping create AEW, Cody would work on the independent scene for the likes of WCPW and Ring of Honor, as well as having some major programs in New Japan Pro Wrestling as a member of the Bullet Club faction.

Cody was one of the founding fathers of AEW, alongside Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. Cody Rhodes has been working closely with Tony Khan ever since the inception of the company to bring in new talent.

Rhodes was the first-ever TNT Champion, where he held the belt until being defeated by the leader of Dark Order, Brodie Lee, on an episode of AEW Dynamite.
