In case you didn’t know…
Following his departure from the WWE in 2016, former WWE Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes has earned an immense amount of success on the Independent circuit and for major promotions such as Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, where ‘The American Nightmare’ has been competing frequently.
Apart from the vast amount of success following his departure from WWE, Cody has also been a huge hit outside the squared circle as he previously guest-starred in the fifth season of popular television series Arrow, where he portrayed a character named Derek Sampson.
The heart of the matter
During the press conference of the recently concluded NJPW: G1 Specials in San Francisco, former one-time ROH World Champion Cody Rhodes decided to switch back to his old dark hairstyle, ditching his all blonde look in the process. At that time, Rhodes pointed out that one of the major reasons why he decided to switch his hairstyle to all black is because ‘The American Nightmare’ was seemingly preparing for a forthcoming role on a TV show.
Cody, however, has now confirmed that he is all set to make a grand return to CW hit TV series Arrow for the upcoming seventh season and will play a major role in the show as he prepares to go head-to-head against his on-screen adversary and fellow Bullet Club stablemate Stephen Amell aka Oliver Queen.
Furthermore, New Japan Pro-Wrestling has also promoted Cody’s upcoming role on Arrow by posting the following on Twitter:
Arrow's 7th season is all set to premiere on 15 October 2018 and this time around, fans can certainly expect Cody Rhodes to appear on multiple episodes of the show.
