Cody: “I don’t have a lot left in my career”

Nov 18, 2021 - by James Walsh

AEW superstar and former two-time TNT champion Cody Rhodes recently appeared on Busted Open Radio to discuss all things pro-wrestling, including how the American Nightmare only foresees himself competing for another three years. Rhodes also speaks on his fan reaction, referring to some wrestling markets as “home” games and some as “away” games similar to pro-sports. Highlights are below.

Says he only believes he’ll be wrestling for 3 more years:

“You don’t wanna drop an absolute on anybody but I don’t have a lot left in my career. I don’t have another 10 years. It’s probably three more years full-time wrestling and I wanna get every accolade I can get my hands on. I wanna be the best ‘me’ I ever was as a pro wrestler and the way I’m gonna do it is as me. If we try really hard to rope me into babyface, rope me into heel, I think we’re gonna miss this wonderful moment. Like you said, Indianapolis was a total home game.”

On wrestling in different markets and looking at them as “home” or “away” games:

“That’s what Arn Anderson says, it’s either gonna be a home or an away game. I know walking into certain markets it’s gonna be an away game. Very likely, New York City, that’s an away game. Walking to Atlanta, Georgia, that’s a home game. Indianapolis was a home game, Miami was a home game. That’s the greatest energy and the greatest gift the fans could give me is to keep doing what they’re doing.”

    Cody I never sold a ticket in my life Rhodes. He wouldn’t even be a wrestler if his last name wasn’t Rhodes. Hot garbage at its best.

    Anyone else get the vibe that he really hasn’t had the passion for wrestling the last couple years (if not longer) and just sees AEW as a stepping stone and a way to stick it to WWE?

    When I read quotes like this, and how he wants to work on other projects, disappears from AEW weeks at a time, does reality shows, etc., baby gender reveals, doesn’t seem like someone interested in being in this business.
