Cody Rhodes says he’s looking for a ‘new home’, talks WWE not allowing him to use Rhodes name

Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes recently did an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. You can check out what he had to say here:

On doing work for several companies at the moment:

“I’m about to make a decision. It’s been really fun to cross all the streams, but at this point I do need to find a new home. That is going to limit all the distance I cover, which includes the work I’ve done with companies like Limitless, Defy, and All Pro Wrestling – there is even a company in Kolkoska, Michigan where I’m wrestling that is called ‘Mr. Chainsaw’. If you see my name on a card and you’re a fan, come on out. I’m not sure how much longer it will be until I’m no longer able to roam around.”

On the WWE not allowing him to use the Rhodes name:

“I’ll tell you this, and I’ve not told anyone this, but I don’t mind that WWE took away my last name. Deep down, in my bones, I definitely want it back – and I have plans to get it back – but there is something to being Cody. The longer I don’t have a last name, the more I’m OK with it. That’s not to say WWE is holding it ransom. It’s literally an intellectual property law that easily can be remedied, but there is something about being Cody that I don’t mind. There is something to not always reminding people of a show they’ve already seen, but instead embracing the one right in front of him. I am Cody, and I can promise you that the future is going to be even better than the past.”

    I believe sooner or later he will end up in NXT. You know it going to be nice when HHH is running the WWE because watching what he done with NXT is amazing. Guys like Cody Rhodes when have been given a much better push if HHH was running the WWE right now.

    Such a wasted talent in WWE. Cody could have really done so much more.
