Cody Rhodes has been continuously achieving achievements since his return to WWE. On Monday, Rhodes was officially announced as one of three cover athletes for the upcoming WWE 2K24 video game. Rhodes will grace the cover of the standard edition of the game while Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley will share the cover of the deluxe edition.

The game is set to release on March 8, 2024 on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, and Microsoft Windows.

“Kobe, Tiger, Cena, LeBron, Rhea and Bianca,” Rhodes posted on, formerly Twitter. “…I’m extremely grateful for the honor of being the @2K cover athlete this year.”

Rhodes has been one of the primary architects of the current landscape in professional wrestling. In 2016, he requested his release from WWE amid frustration with its creative direction. He made a massive impact on the independent wrestling scene with companies such as Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

Rhodes was a central part of the team that accepted the challenge from pro wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer after Meltzer said that an independent show could not sell out a 10,000-seat arena. He hosted the All In event in 2018. Worked with The Young Bucks for. The Sears Center Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois sold out in less than 30 minutes.

All In would eventually lead to the creation of All Elite Wrestling, where Rhodes was an executive vice president and a leader in transforming the promotion into the second largest wrestling company in the world. The promotion now has several shows airing on cable television each week.

Rhodes returned to WWE in 2022, where he has been a big star ever since, including headlining 2023’s WrestleMania 39 after winning that year’s Royal Rumble.

Belair has been one of WWE’s top female superstars in recent years, including holding the Raw Women’s Championship for a record 420 days. Although he is not currently champion, he still holds a prominent position at the top of the card.

As a member – and arguably leader – of The Judgment Day faction, Ripley has seen years of discussion about her potential as an elite star come to fruition over the past year.

Ripley won the 2023 Royal Rumble before defeating Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 39 to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship, which was renamed the Women’s World Championship, and has held the title ever since.
