Cody Rhodes on Kevin Owens & Daniel Bryan Helping Him, Advice to New WWE Talent, Leaving WWE

Former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes was recently interviewed by ESPN. You can check out some highlights from the interview here:

On Kevin Owens & Daniel Bryan Helping Him:

“I had a habit of watching classic wrestling pretty much on repeat in the locker rooms. With the influx of talent at WWE, with guys like Kevin Owens, he was one of the first people to open my eyes up to the world that is PWG and BOLA. My longstanding friendship with Daniel Bryan had already opened up my eyes to the Ring of Honor brand [as well as Evolve].”

On his advice to talent that sign with WWE:

“Most of the things I share with them are from my personal mistakes or from a few personal successes I had. How to deal with the political element, the financial element of it and also the grueling schedule element of it and how it can affect your family. I get a kick out of it, but then I find myself happy to answer questions like that.”

On leaving WWE:

“A lot of times when people are released, or unfortunately get fired, they almost scramble for what it is they are going to do next. I think when you are no longer working under a big corporate umbrella, you have to be your own brand, your own enterprise. That was my thought process before I left.”
