The reason why Cody Rhodes is missing Battle of the Belts


AEW Star Cody Rhodes has confirmed that he has tested positive for Covid-19.

AEW announced yesterday that Rhodes would miss the inaugural Battle of Belts event but gave no reason at the time.

You can see Rhodes’ statement that he posted on Instagram below:

“I appreciate everybody reaching out. Brandi and I are in isolation with family that have unfortunately tested positive for Covid. It’s been a scary time dealing with such a strong virus and the complications that can come with it. We are doing all we can to nurse and protect the family during this time. I will remain in quarantine as long as needed.

“Everyday is more encouraging,” Cody Rhodes continued. “Thank you immensely for your support and respect for our privacy. Thank you to AEW for understanding and allowing me to be where I am needed today, and for still allowing the TNT Title to be represented. I look forward to being back soon. All the love in the world!”

Rhodes was due to face Sammy Guevara for the TNT Championship but has now been replaced by his brother Dustin.

An interim TNT Champion will be crowned tonight instead.
