If WWE accustomed to feed on the legacy of many of its fighters, such as Randy Orton or Charlotte , the company did not have the same fate with the Rhodes lineage. Cody has enjoyed tremendous success since leaving the McMahon product , and is currently the Ring of Honor World Champion after defeating Christopher Daniels at the Best in the World event on June 23 .
Recently, Rhodes chatted with Fox Sports: Braves , combining a substantial interview that touched all its main fronts as a fighter. To open the mouth, the member of the Bullet Club expressed his feelings for winning the greatest scepter of independent wrestling :
“I think he was finally ready for that moment, he wanted to be a world champion since he was a kid . I was thrown and agitated by a series of events that night, I opened my mouth to the first three minutes of the fight. We almost left the air without a definitive conclusion , so here I am at the end, it is what I always wanted, and almost took them out of the air without there being a winner. I spent my time celebrating in a hospital where I got stitches, and that still impacts me today . Every time I see him and every time people ask me in autograph signings and meetings with followers, people ask me, it’s a very special feeling and a very cool responsibility. “
“The business right now is like that, fast. I visualized it as being in a test tube and taking samples every hour and not being able to predict something . It is due to types. I usually go back to the “Pipe Bomb” of CM Punk, a truly defining moment for professional wrestling, because it was the first time that these channels really crossed . Some of the things he talked about had mentioned them in Ring of Honor, and look what the Young Bucks have done . They do not need WWE . Not being so much a fan of where they work, but above all, being a fan of themselves individually and as a team. That attitude spread like wildfire, Has made it the most fun time to be a professional fighter and be a fan, because really, anything can happen . I’m a free agent. I have not signed with Ring of Honor, but hell, I love the Honor brand and I very much value the responsibility of being world champion. “
