Cody On His IMPACT Run: Team Canada Guy Gave My Parking Spot To ADR; I Committed To ROH, Rest Is History

After leaving WWE in 2016, Cody went on an Independent run that included stops at Ring of Honor, PWG, EVOLVE, and more. 

Cody popped up in IMPACT Wrestling at Bound For Glory 2016 to work alongside his wife Brandi in a feud with Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis. IMPACT was also partnered with

Cody's time in IMPACT was short-lived and as he explained on social media in response to a photo posted by Garrett Kidney, his IMPACT run helped lead to the formation of All Elite Wrestling. 

"The Team Canada Guy" is not specified. Scott D'Amore, former leader of Team Canada, was an executive for Global Force Wrestling in 2016 and were nearing a partnership with IMPACT Wrestling. Other famous members of Team Canada include Robert Roode (no longer with the company at the time), Petey Williams (retired at the time), and Eric Young (no longer with the company at the time). 

ADR is a reference to the former Alberto Del Rio, who worked as Alberto El Patron in IMPACT while Josh M would seem to be a reference to Josh Mathews. 

Cody's pettiness has him as a co-executive vice president of All Elite Wrestling, who is now in a partnership with IMPACT, where D'Amore serves as co-executive vice president.
