Cody Rhodes Biography

Cody Garrett Runnels is an American professional wrestler signed to WWE, better known by his ring name Cody Rhodes. He is the half-brother of Goldust as well as the son of Dusty Rhodes. Runnels started wrestling professionally in 2006, using his real name, wrestling for Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). Runnels formed a tag team with Shawn Spears in mid-August 2006 and they quickly became embroiled in a feud with The Untouchables over the OVW Southern Tag Team Championship. While situated at OVW, he won various championships, both in tag team and singles competition, including the OVW Heavyweight Championship. Runnels made his television debut on 2 July 2007, using the ring name Cody Rhodes, in a backstage segment with his father Dusty Rhodes and Randy Orton. On December 10, 2007, on the Raw 15th Anniversary special episode, Rhodes along with Hardcore Holly defeated Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch for the World Tag Team Championship, marking Rhodes' first championship in WWE. Rhodes formed a secret alliance with Ted DiBiase, Jr during 2008. In the course of a match held on June 29 he turned on Holly by switching sides to join DiBiase, with whom he became World Tag Team champion. In January 2009, Rhodes and DiBiase formed a new alliance, The Legacy, with Randy Orton. Rhodes was moved to the SmackDown brand in April 2010, as part of the Supplemental Draft, and won the WWE Tag Team Championship with Drew McIntyre in September of the same year. In August 2011, Rhodes won the WWE Intercontinental Championship, his first singles championship in WWE, holding it for over seven months. He won the title back one month later at Extreme Rules.
