TNA is teasing a debut for Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling, and all signs point to it being Cody Rhodes.
The company released a video on Wednesday afternoon advertising that “He is coming.” The video claims that the debuting wrestler’s past is behind him, his future is now, and all roads lead to tomorrow night. The video features a man in a suit, but never reveals who it is.

Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling has already been taped without Rhodes or anyone else debuting in front of the audience, so it seems likely that whoever debuts will be doing so in a pre-taped segment that wasn’t seen by the crowd.
Both Rhodes’ wife, Brandi Rhodes, and friend, actor Stephen Amell, tweeted the video and called the debut a game changer.

It was reported earlier this month that Rhodes’ wrestling future would involve working for TNA, though he wouldn’t be signing an exclusive deal. TNA announced on Monday that Brandi had signed a contract to join the organization as a wrestler.
