Cody Rhodes has been receiving mixed reactions from fans since returning after taking time off due to the birth of his daughter. Upon his return, Cody re-entered into a feud with recent AEW addition Malichi Black, which saw Black receive more of a positive reaction than Rhodes. Many Fans have suggested maybe it is time to turn Rhodes heel, but according to Cody don’t expect it anytime soon.
While chatting with Brian Jones of Pop Culture, Cody made it very clear that he won’t turn heel any time soon. Rhodes also does far too much community outreach to be a bad guy on television.
“This will disappoint so many and maybe it won’t, maybe this will excite, but two things I can guarantee you. And I’m not saying this to wave one hand while you’re not looking at the other. I’m telling this from the most honest standpoint, I am not going to turn heel on this company. And I would retire before I did that. Now I’m the head of the community outreach group. I have a little girl now. I’m not going to be doing heel stuff on TV. I am not turning heel and I’m not going back on my word to challenge for the title. That stuff was real. It hurts. It is a large regret that that ever happened, but it did happen and I can live with it. And I got to do that dance with Chris Jericho, and I will not go back on that stipulation, me personally. If Tony wanted to change things he could. And again, you can never say never in wrestling, but I do think there’s this idea that evil corporate need would turn the stipulation around and challenge for the world title, that I can say never will happen.”
We will have to wait and see how Rhodes will proceed in the near future as it looks like there may be some inner turmoil between him and his Nightmare Family associate Arn Anderson who dropped a scathing promo on the star.
