What's the story?

During a recent Q&A session on Twitter, Cody Rhodes revealed the list of superstars he would like to defend his newly-won NWA World Heavyweight Championship against in the near future.

In case you didn't know...

At Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks' inaugural All In pay-per-view, 'The American Nightmare' Cody once again made history by winning his second ever World Championship since departing from the WWE a few years ago.

Cody, who is also a former Ring of Honor World Champion, captured the NWA World Heavyweight Championship at All In after an outstanding back-and-forth match against former champion Nick Aldis.

The heart of the matter

The NWA World Heavyweight Championship is quite arguably one of the most prestigious World Titles in all of Professional Wrestling, considering the fact that legends such as Ric Flair, Harley Race, and Cody's own father, the legendary Dusty Rhodes had memorable reigns with the NWA World Title.

However, as far as Cody is concerned, 'The American Nightmare' currently has a lot of weight on his shoulders given the fact that he would like nothing less than a memorable NWA World Title reign--He is also apparently looking to defend his title against a few notable names.

As noted, a fan asked Cody on Twitter about which superstar he would like to defend his NWA Title against to which the new champion responded by stating the names of Shingo Takagi (who recently departed from Dragon Gate), Willie Mack, Cody's fellow NJPW colleagues Will Ospreay and Tomohiro Ishii, a potential rematch with Nick Aldis, and finally noted the name of Cody's mentor Randy Orton.

This is what Cody had to say in his tweet:

What's next?

Cody is currently in contention of becoming the first ever NWA and IWGP US Heavyweight Champion, as he gets all set to challenge Juice Robinson for the US Title.
