Cody Rhodes comments on being the face of WWE.

With winning the Undisputed WWE Championship at WrestleMania XL came a new set of responsibilities for Cody Rhodes as he became the undisputed face of the company. Cody was already appearing weekly on television, working live events, and making the media rounds, but holding the gold further solidified him in that spot.

Appearing on WHAS11, Rhodes was asked what it's like to be the face of the company.

"I came into WWE, I was 20 years old. When you're 20, you think, 'It's definitely going to be me. I'm the face of this thing. This is mine.' At 25, you think, 'It's definitely me. Definitely.' As you get more experience and get more educated in sports entertainment, pro wrestling, when that moment came for me, because I had heard it several times, it's such a good feeling but also the first thing is 'Whew, okay, alright.' I welcome the responsibility and have enjoyed this time because it's a completely new face for WWE in terms of, not just me, but new management, new ownership, everything. Being part of that is really cool," he said.

Cody is set to defend the Undisputed WWE Championship against AJ Styles in an "I Quit" match at WWE Clash at the Castle.
