He received a huge ovation from the crowd following his appearance on Miz TV tonight. During the segment, Cody said, “This moment, it has been a long time since I got to be in front of a crowd like this.”

Well, it is not that Cody had not performed in front of a live crowd since his exit from WWE almost six years ago. He had a great time at AEW. But this statement from Cody tonight might not go down well with some AEW fans.

Further, ‘The American Nightmare’ told The Miz, “Do I look the same to you? What do you think I have been doing for six years?”

“Every piece of that road provides me crystal clear clarity on not what I want to do, what I need to do. And that is to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship belt.”
