The internet has been flooded with the news of a number of WWE talents being unhappy with the company and wanting to get out of their contracts in the past couple of weeks.
With the recent rise of AEW, these reports have obviously sparked speculations that these talents might be looking to sign with the company with some believing that the company might have offered them lucrative deals to leave WWE.
However, during a recent interview on the Breaking Kayfabe Podcast, Vice President Cody Rhodes discussed how in his new role he has to be careful about talking to contracted wrestlers and claimed that he has been busy communicating with independent wrestlers:
“It’s been tough because when you’re just one of the boys, you can talk to anybody. But in this new role, legality is incredibly important and we want to be on the up and up. We try to be very careful about making sure we’re not talking to anybody who’s under a specific deal, make sure they’re aware this is why we can’t talk to you. The thing that surprised me a great deal is, we haven’t really had to communicate with anybody on that level because there’s so much fresh, independent talent”
Continuing on the topic, Rhodes said that he has been getting a lot of suggestions regarding talented indie wrestlers ever since their recent Double Or Nothing rally.
