"I can tell you 40 is out of the question just because, not to give you scoop, it was widely reported, but I did sign a new contract with WWE," Cody said when asked if he still plans to retire when he's 40. "It extends beyond my 40th birthday. The plan is still, when it's time to step out, to step out without it being a painful process. Solely because I saw my dad [Dusty Rhodes] as an old man wrestler and he loved it and enjoyed it, but as his son it was hard to see. My daughter is two going on three, there does have to be a time, just like he was with us, where I have to be home all the time and be there with her. It's not 40 anymore. I'll update the number. I hit the prime run late in the game. I often forget that I'm nearing 40."

Rhodes is currently 38 years old.

Fightful Select reported in December 2023 that "WWE was looking to imminently re-sign Cody."

Cody is set to team with Seth Rollins in the main event of night one of WrestleMania 40 to take on Roman Reigns & The Rock. At night two, Cody will challenge Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
