Cody Rhodes

Former NWA World Heavyweight Champion Cody Rhodes took to Instagram to talk about his experience at the NWA’s 70th Anniversary event this past weekend.

Rhodes, who holds the IWGP United States Championship with New Japan Pro Wrestling, revealed he is about to transition to a “new role” in pro wrestling.

“It’s never pleasant losing a match, not to mention losing a title. However, last night in Nashville was the largest gross in Fairgrounds history(topped the TNA “asylum” 02-04 run, HOFers Dream & Jeff somehow 💛) and I know a great deal of folks traveled far-and-wide to be there. That’s not missed on me. Southern rasslin’ and the cities that host it don’t often get that “buzz” like they should and it felt like the days of old last night. THANK YOU to all those who attended and watched live on FITE. THANK YOU to all those who attended the meet/greet(we earned several thousand dollars that I’ll be donating to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation! Still waiting on final numbers). As I begin a transition to a new role in pro-wrestling, I hope all the fans who’ve discovered the NWA recently…stay on board and continue to watch the likes of Nick Aldis, Avalon, Willie Mack, Jazz and many more.”

Cody also revealed he now has limited dates left with Ring of Honor.

“As I continue my remaining dates with the good folks at ROH, I’d like to thank them and The NWA for allowing me to cross imaginary lines and give the fans something special!”
