Many feel that Cody Rhodes was underutilized during his run in the WWE. Especially since he’s captured the ROH World Championship and the NJPW US Championship after leaving a few years ago, fans believe that the American Nightmare should have won the WWE Championship at some point.
Rhodes responded to a fan on Twitter who was claiming that the company gave him a great run, and agreed.
They didn’t squander me at all. It was a great place to learn, travel, and grow-up across TV sets. Helped shape the business side of me forever. I just had different aspirations and saw a different path I wanted to take.

Not only did Rhodes hold Intercontinental and Tag Team gold, but he was involved in some big storylines over his 10-year run with the company, including teaming with Ted Dibiase Jr. and Randy Orton in the stable of multi-generational stars known as Legacy.
Between that, his feuds over the Intercontinental Championship and his multiple great tag team run, including multiple victories over the Shield during the group’s original run, it’s hard to say that Rhodes was misused, even if his run as Stardust left a lot to be desired.
