#4 Legitimate backstage heat between Cody Rhodes and The Elite in AEW?

Cody Rhodes' recent absence from Being The Elite has given rise to speculation about the former WWE star's relationship with other AEW executives.

Brian Last revealed on Jim Cornette's podcast that angry messages might have been exchanged between Cody Rhodes and other Elite members, including the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega.

Rhodes being away from BTE could be due to his reported backstage beef with The Elite. The former TNT Champion has been in a feud with QT Marshall, and the mid-card angle could be a way to keep the American Nightmare away from the main event picture.

Omega and the Bucks are dominating the main event picture of AEW, but is there any truth to the rumors of behind-the-scenes unrest?

Sean Ross Sapp addressed the speculation during the recent Q&A session on Fighful Select. While SRS has heard the rumors, he has not received any confirmation from a talent or executive in AEW.

Here's what Sean Ross Sapp had to say:

"I've heard the rumors. I haven't heard that from any talents. I haven't heard that from any executives, but I've heard it's worth me asking about. It is not something that wrestlers are talking about, and it's not been something I've asked about a tonne," SRS said. (H/t WrestleTalk)

Cody is embroiled in a feud with Marshall and The Factory, and we should know more about the circulating rumors in the weeks to follow.
