WWE News: Stone Cold weighs in on Cody Rhodes' departure
Questions the timing of the move.
WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes asked for his release from the company last month, which was granted. He clarified that he had decided to leave the WWE as he was not satisfied with the role with which he was provided.
Wrestlinginc.com reports that WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin relayed his views on Cody’s decision in the latest episode of his podcast, The Steve Austin Show.
About the decision to leave the WWE :
"Cody Rhodes decided to ride off into the sunset. He wasn't happy with creative [and] he wasn't happy that he couldn't do what he wanted to do. His value would have been at an all-time high because of the brand split and they're going to need all hands on deck. And so maybe him leaving wasn't such a good idea, to take himself out of the picture, as he might have had a little bit more leverage or might have been used in a higher regard due to the brand split because they're going to need all the talent they can muster."
His thoughts on Cody’s future wrestling career :
"I don't see him in Japan. I love the kid. I love Cody. I think he's a real talented guy, but where does he go from here if it's going to be in the wrestling world? I wish that guy all the luck. He's a good kid and I've been friends with the [Rhodes] family forever. Dusty meant so much to my wrestling career and I used to travel the world with Dustin and I got to know Cody a little bit, so I wish the guy all the luck in the world."
As it would turn out though, Cody Rhodes is all set to take on Kurt Angle in a marquee event put out by North East Wrestling's Wrestling Under the Stars event in August of 2016.
