It looks like former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes could be the next after Damien Sandown to join the company's arch rival TNA. TNA posted a video yesterday teasing the debut of a new star on their roster at tonight's episode of company's flagship show Impact Wrestling.
The video titled 'He is coming' as seen below, shows a mysterious man in a suit and reads 'all roads lead to tomorrow night':
Due to the video and the phrases used in it, it's widely believed that the wrestler to grace TNA by his presence could be the former Intercontinental champion. What really confirms the mysterious man to be none other than Cody himself is the triforce tattoo shown in the video under his wedding ring just around the 3-second mark.
These speculations also make sense due to the fact that TNA recently announced the signing of Brandi Rhodes, Cody Rhodes's wife for their knockouts division. However, it's notable here that Cody was not present during the recent TNA tapings and the reports from Wrestlinginc suggest that he would only be appearing in a pre-recorded segment.
It's notable here that the signing of Cody Rhodes would be a profitable move for TNA due to the fact that he wrestled in WWE for almost a decade and is a well-recognized face among casual WWE Fans. They would be able to bring the attention of casual fans towards their programming by getting him on board.
The former WWE Star recently shot for DC's Arrow TV Series and would be appearing in an upcoming episode of the 5th season of the superhero-based show. This would result in more media attention for the company.
Cody Rhodes, who is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, made his WWE debut back in 2007 and quickly got involved in a feud with former World Champion Randy Orton.
In the time to follow, he joined Orton along with Ted DiBiase Jr to form a heel stable known as The Legacy. The stable helped Randy win the WWE Championship while also holding the tag team championship at the same time.
He played multiple gimmicks including the likes of Dashing Cody Rhodes, Stardust and more while also winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship twice later in his career.
After struggling in WWE's mid-card for several years, the former champion was granted his WWE release in May this year and has been working on the independent circuit ever since. The details of his contract – whether it is an exclusive one or a flexible one that involves Independent appearances – is not known at this moment.
