Cody Rhodes has been on a roll ever since he left the WWE. He has been a consistent name in many of the independent wrestling promotions’ events. He also became a member of the esteemed Bullet Club in NJPW and is becoming one of the top draws for independent wrestling promotions.

Cody Rhodes requested his release from the WWE in May this year and was subsequently released from his contract. Cody cited that he was frustrated with his place on the card and with how WWE Creative were using him as the reasons for him requesting his release.

Soon after Cody’s departure, his wife was also released from the WWE.

Cody then started to work for several independent wrestling promotions such as Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling, among others. Cody was also inducted into the world-famous Bullet Club as a new member joining the elite list of Kenny Omega, Adam Cole and The Young Bucks.

Ring of Honor recently announced an event for February 3rd and Cody has been advertised to wrestle in the show against none other than Donovan Dijak. Donovan Dijak debuted in ROH on July 27, 2014.
