Braun Strowman Powerslams Kane Through The Ring On Raw, Cody Rhodes On Making More Money Outside Of WWE


Cody Rhodes On Making More Money Outside Of WWE, What’s The Best Advice Dusty Rhodes Ever Gave Him?

During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, former WWE Superstar & current ROH World Champion Cody Rhodes talked about leaving WWE and making more money outisde, getting advice from his late father Dusty Rhodes & more.

Below are the highlights:

On making more money after leaving WWE:

“I just had the absolute best luck in the world in terms of meeting The Young Bucks and they might look like wild little rock stars who are irresponsible but they are business geniuses. They set up the deal with Hot Topic and they’re going to be the first 7-figure downside characters that New Japan Pro Wrestling has. The best way to put it is it’s better. It’s currently the best it’s ever been for me. So yes, I don’t want to be tacky but it’s very exciting.”

On being happier since leaving WWE:

“I was really confident when I left WWE. I was confident that I would have a good time and I was confident that I could wrestle differently than perhaps people saw me in the last few years with WWE but I definitely wasn’t prepared for this level of everything. This level of fan interaction, this level of financial residuals coming from these shows and this level of just love.”

On the best advice his late father Dusty Rhodes gave him:

“Every day with him was kind of like a motivational chit-chat. That’s how he spoke. He spoke almost like a preacher whenever you spoke to him, so there was always something. I think the thing that always stuck with me was maximize your minutes.

At the time in WWE I wasn’t getting a lot of airtime and I wasn’t always the one with his hand raised at the end and he believed it didn’t matter. You could still do something that made somebody go ‘Oh, I really like that guy’ or little kids that really liked Stardust.

I think about that a lot because I have the opportunity to have a lot of minutes when it comes to Ring of Honor and I think about now that you’ve got them, don’t blow it. I hear his voice in my head in every match. He’s always with me.”

On Chris Jericho facing Kenny Omega next year:

“Those types of moves didn’t happen in the early 2000s. They didn’t really happen after the Attitude Era. Now all of a sudden the term Independent Contractor really means Independent Contractor and that’s really cool. It’s not the brand that defines you, it’s you that defines the brand.”
