The American Night
The American Nightmare is making some good money

What's the story?

It might be considered rude to speak about how much money you're making but Cody Rhodes felt the need to break tradition and reveal his paycheck.

He didn't give an exact dollar amount, but he did give some details which would lead us to believe he's doing much better than when he was with WWE.

In case you didn't know...

There have been a couple walk-outs recently in the WWE locker room recently. Cody Rhodes knows what it's like and actually did the same when he took off his Stardust makeup for the last time and left Vince McMahon and Company along with his last name at the same time.

On a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer commented on how people can't make the same amount of money on the indies as they do in WWE if they're at a certain level.

Cody Rhodes was a pretty popular WWE Superstar during his time in the company and he seems to to be doing just fine.

The heart of the matter

Cody Rhodes recently spoke out to dispell any rumors concerning how much money someone can make on the indie scene. Of course, not everyone can pull down the same asking price as the son of Dusty Rhodes, but it's still a pretty impressive idea that Cody could make so much working ROH and the indie scene.

That number is probably even larger than if he made the same while in WWE because as an ROH star and indie wrestler Cody Rhodes doesn't have to make all the towns with WWE on his dime while paying for travel and hotel accommodations.

What's next?

There doesn't seem to be any sign of Cody Rhodes slowing down. He's still one of the most popular members of the indie wrestling scene as a member of the Bullet Club.

Therefore you should probably expect way more from The American Nightmare as his amazing career continues.

Author's take

When Cody Rhodes left WWE I can't lie I was nervous for him. But it turned out to be the best decision he could make.

Just like his father, Cody is a trailblazer and while he's not allowed to be called "Rhodes" anymore he will never lose that little spark of The American Dream that is always shining through everything he does in the ring.
