3. Former WWE Star Making More Money Now Than He Was Making In WWE, Reveals What Shawn Michaels Once Told Him

During a recent interview with Channel Guide Magazine, former WWE Superstar and the new ROH World Champion Cody Rhodes discussed being a member of the Bullet Club, making more money now, not wanting to return to WWE & more. Below are the highlights:

On why he doesn’t want to return to WWE:

“I don’t want to sound negative but being part of history right now and this new era and new boom. I didn’t get that while in WWE. So currently there is no incentive for me to return to WWE. I’m making more money than I was with WWE. I’ve been in some unbelievable matchups. Two are coming up. I love WWE. Just currently there is no incentive. There are some things I would love to be a part of. I would love to be part of the Dusty tag team tournament. At the same time I don’t think I’m playing a revenge song here. I don’t think I’m ready to move out of the spot of where I’m at.”

On the success of The Bullet Club:

“Bullet Club has become even more worldwide. It was already worldwide with Finn Bálor and AJ Styles, Bullet Club OG’s Karl Anderson and Gallows. They set the playing field. Now to walk out on it and it really is worldwide. The addition of Marty Scurll is very significant. I don’t know if people are giving him the credit they should. He represents an entirely different demographic.”

On what Shawn Michaels once told him:

“Shawn Michaels told me once that when someone asked, ‘Hey, how was my match?’ He answered them, but then said to me, ‘You know how your match was when you walk through the curtain. You know if it was awesome or if it wasn’t. You know because of how the audience reacted.’ It’s more about asking what you could have done differently. It’s made me really happy to play my music my way.”
