• Details On Cody Rhodes’ Complex WWE Contract
During an interview on The Ringer after his return to WWE at WrestleMania 38, Cody Rhodes said the following about his WWE contract:
“I’m all in [with WWE]. It may be the most complex document ever drawn out in the history of our game.
This is a full multi-year commitment, not a part-time deal. I’m back doing what I used to, every day on the road. They were wonderful enough to get me a bus, so my family could be with me.
They bet on me, so I’m going to bet on WWE. I’m really looking forward to it.”
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE President Nick Khan gave Cody more than just a Bus.
Nick added a clause to Cody’s contract which will allow The American Nightmare to work on projects outside of WWE.
Cody will be allowed to be a Judge on the Go Big Show, if there’s a 3rd season. Cody was a Judge on the 1st & 2nd season.
Cody was also a part of the ‘Rhodes to the Top’ reality show, but that was an AEW project, so that show won’t be happening (even though they had begun filming the new season prior to Cody’s AEW departure).
