Cody Rhodes doesn’t need WWE. But the professional wrestling juggernaut would do well to scoop him back up when he’s no longer under contract with ROH come January. Cody previously worked for WWE from 2006 to 2016. He reinvented himself on the indy scene and established himself as one of the industry’s biggest stars.
Rhodes has won several World Titles, joined up with The Bullet Club – to whom he serves as a leader for – and made indy wrestling history. Rhodes, along with The Young Bucks, put on a highly-successful self-funded pay-per-view event, “All In.” Now, with his contract set to expire in a few months, Cody’s stock has skyrocketed.
He currently reigns as the IWGP United States Champion and the NWA World Heavyweight Champion. He’s also one-third of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions. With all the stock he has garnered in the past several years, it’s hard not to believe Cody could be a big-time main eventer if brought back to WWE.
Speaking to Wrestling Inc. recently, Rhodes was asked about the possibility. Rhodes mentioned that he and The Bullet Club showing up to WWE come January is “pretty possible”:
“Well, my own promotion is still ROH. I know the big what-to-do is, oh, January 1 we are going to show up on WWE… Pretty possible,” Cody said. “But my own promotion is still ROH and I love ROH.
“The ROH world champion, Jay Lethal, if you recall my very first match [at Final Battle 2016]: Jay Lethal, Hammerstein Ballroom. Just beat the hell out of him. Just embarrassed him. The whole franchise act – whack, whack, whack, Cross Rhodes 1-2-3. Wouldn’t that be something?”
