Appearing on WWE’s The Bump, Cody Rhodes was again asked what brought about the return.
“It just was time. I don’t really know how else to put it,” Rhodes said. “It really was time. I loved what I had been doing, I’m so proud of it. I know people aren’t living under a rock. I had come from another company that I loved everything about it, everything. But I needed to move forward. And I got to elaborate a little on that on RAW, which was amazing because I was just able to go out and speak in an unscripted, raw fashion and tell a story about my dad that not everybody knows.
