Former WWE talent Cody Rhodes has gone on record to indicate yesturday that he has not signed with any company, though a new report claims that Cody has in fact signed with ROH. According to sources close to the situation Rhodes has come to terms with a new contract with the company. The length of the deal is unknown at this time.
Cody was not at the latest iMPACT! Wrestling TV Tapings which led to rumors that he may have in fact signed with ROH. Rhodes would take to twitter later that day to say:
The report from WrestlingINC mentions this comment, assuming the report is accurate Cody’s deal with ROH could have come in place later that same day, or Cody could have been trolling fans.
Cody’s new deal with ROH would allow him to book independent dates outside the company, such as PWG, NJPW, and other international promotions, very similar to how the Young Bucks deal. Rhodes will be allowed to sell merchandise through ProWrestlingTees and other third party vendors. The only downfall would be that Rhodes is not able to work TV Tapings for another US based wrestling company.
With time we will see the validity of this report.
