WWE reportedly contacts Cody Rhodes for a new deal, Hollywood in his future?

According to a report on PWInsider Elite, WWE has contacted Cody Rhodes about a potential Legends deal. Just to be clear, he is not expected to return to the company and he is set on wrestling on the independent scene.

A Legends contract would allow the company to sell merchandise with his likeness. WWE owns the Stardust character so they might be able to sell that merchandise without a deal but I would assume that they’d want to work out a deal to be able to sell merchandise under the “Cody Rhodes” name.

Rhodes is looking to try his hand at acting and he was in Hollywood this past week for some meetings. Rhodes versatility in WWE can be credited, in part, to his previous acting experience. In 2014, he attended the Howard Fine Acting Studio in Los Angeles for a year and he was able to show off some of his acting chops in a guest starring role on SyFy’s “Warehouse 13” in 2010.

In slightly related news, Rhodes commented on the news of “Clash Of Champions” returning. The show, created and named by his father Dusty Rhodes, began airing as a special on TBS in 1988. “I’m not in the slightest bit perturbed… a new audience gets to feel clash. I hope all of Dream’s originals eventually return. Havoc, Bash, Cade’ and of course the war games.”
