• Cody Rhodes Taking Up A New Role In Wrestling In 2019

During a recent appearance on AJ Awesome Show, former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes was asked about his plans in 2019 and Cody noted that he’s going to take up a new role in Wrestling.

Below is what Cody said:

“Well, I’m 33. I said I’d be done wrestling by 40 which is very unlikely. I don’t know. I couldn’t plan 2018-2019. I don’t know. I’d like to do more guest roles acting-wise. I think I’ve learned a little in that field and I want to expand upon that field not where it interrupts with my wrestling at all.

My New Japan dates — I’d like to advance those. I come over on a limited schedule and I’d rather come over on a little bit more full-time schedule. They have such great wrestling. The only way you’re going to get good at wrestling is wrestling where there is great wrestling and I’d like to be there more often than I was this past year.

But also…I’ve got some big plans that I can’t discuss that will take up a lot of time and I’m very excited about starting that and it’s a different role for me in wrestling and I’m pumped for it.”
