JNPO: Pro wrestling year in review - February 2022

Josh & Ian Carey look back at a month that saw Cody & Brandi Rhodes leave AEW.

The pro wrestling year in review series continues on Josh Nason's Punch-Out with a stop in February 2022.

Joining me this week to sift through it all is website writer and columnist Ian Carey.

The biggest news from February was Cody Rhodes' decision to leave AEW in favor of WWE. While the story extended for several months, it truly took bloom this month.

Some of the other big news and notes we talked about from 468 stories we posted that month:

  • WWE's return to Saudi Arabia that saw Brock Lesnar regain the WWE title while Bobby Lashley never actually got into the match, in addition to Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg
  • Shane McMahon's exit from WWE
  • AEW's Tony Khan teasing another massive announcement
  • The strange story of Brian Kendrick
  • Several big AEW debuts including Keith Lee and Jay White
  • All the news from Japan, Impact, ROH, and the indies
