Cody Rhodes reportedly unhappy about leaked WWE talks

Earlier this week we noted that WWE reached out to Cody Rhodes (Cody Runnels) about a Legends deal. The Wrestling Observer newsletter reports that, at this point, no deal has been reached and it was Mark Carrano that made the call.

Rhodes was said to be unhappy because the conversation was supposed to be confidential but somehow word got out and the story got twisted and in some places, it was reported that Rhodes called WWE about returning.

Obviously, Rhodes is not looking to return to WWE and he continues to book independent dates. He is also looking at getting into acting. It looks like there may still be an issue with the “Rhodes” name being used because his Pro Wrestling Tees shirts are being marketed as just “Cody” with no mention of the Rhodes name. As of this week, WWE still owns the “Cody Rhodes” name so it could just be a matter of waiting for WWE to release the name to him or perhaps a deal was worked out to let him use the “Cody Rhodes” name for appearances but not on merchandise.
