Since leaving WWE, Cody Rhodes has transformed his career in the pro wrestling business.
Rhodes went out and worked as many matches as he could while signing with promotions such as Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor.
He then took on a big challenge in helping to create All Elite Wrestling where he serves as an executive and top star.
In the last years of his career in WWE, he portrayed the Stardust character. He responded to Alex McCarthy where he took the blame for the character. He wrote the following:
“Not pushing Stardust wasn’t the crime, the character had broke me and I was a subpar performer under the paint during that period. The crime was not capitalizing on 2010-12 where I was cooking with gas and my live event work was top level consistent. In the end, blame is on me.”
