Cody Rhodes Wins 2022 ESPY Award For Best WWE Moment

Cody Rhodes took home the 2022 ESPY Award for Best WWE Moment.

Rhodes’ return to WWE at WrestleMania 38 was named as one of four finalists for the award. The other finalists were The Undertaker’s WWE Hall of Fame Induction, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin dropping Vince McMahon and others with Stunners at WrestleMania 38, and Big E’s successful Money in the Bank cash-in to win the WWE Championship.

At the awards ceremony on July 20, Rhodes was officially named as the winner.

The announcement, courtesy of WWE’s website, is as follows:

Cody Rhodes’ return at WrestleMania rocked the WWE Universe and is now taking home the ESPY hardware for WWE Moment of the Year. The honor was announced as Rhodes presented the ESPY for Best Comeback Athlete.

The American Nightmare topped 15 other nominees in fan voting to determine the 2022 WWE Moment of the Year. The three other finalists included The Undertaker’s WWE Hall of Fame induction, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin raising hell at WrestleMania and Big E cashing in for the WWE Title on Raw.

Rhodes wasn’t the only one representing WWE in Los Angeles, as WWE Global Ambassador Titus O’Neil shined on the red carpet after following his nomination for the Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award last year.

Rhodes’ match with Seth “Freakin” Rollins provided plenty of unforgettable moments at The Showcase of the Immortals and adds the ESPY Award to its legacy.

Congratulations to Cody Rhodes on the award-winning return!
