Cody Rhodes Talks About Freelancing After WWE

Some times the grass is greener on the other side,and that appears to be the case for Cody Rhodes.

The former WWE Superstar recently gave an interview with WZ Weekly about his career trajectory since he left WWE earlier this year. Rhodes has worked for several promotions since his WWE release

I’m trying to rewrite the rules and do it in an honest way. Signing a long term contract for me anywhere… it’s flattering to be offered one. A lot of them that have come to me do have a lot to offer. There isn’t just one game in town anymore with WWE. However, “The List” is the greatest indicator of what I am trying to do. “The List” has names on it that are at Ring of Honor, TNA and NJPW. What we are trying to do is rewrite the rules. We are trying to do something that, you can say this but in this case it’s real, something in wrestling that no one has done, yet, and be successful at it. Not just do it for doing it’s sake but actually make that crossover exciting. Can you imagine Ring of Honor vs TNA matches? Can you imagine some of the dream matches you can do with both companies? Some kind of cross promotion. I’m not sure, I’m clearly getting far ahead of myself, I’d like very much for me to have the freedom to go wherever and people be responsive to it. So far everyone have been really wonderful about working together.
