Effy Calls Cody Rhodes A Legend For His Work On The Independent Wrestling Scene

Effy has become one of the top names in independent wrestling by being unapologetically Effy (and that’s a great thing)

Effy has helped raise the profile of the independents and the LGBTQ during WrestleMania weekends thanks to his Big Gay Brunch show, which features top LGBTQ talent and celebrates the community.

In 2023, Effy’s Big Gay Brunch will take place early Saturday morning, just ahead of NXT Stand & Deliver and then night one of WrestleMania 39.

Effy appeared on Indied with Mike & Righteous Reg, and while promoting Big Gay Brunch, WrestleMania 39 was mentioned.

“Cody is going to give us a show, I’m actually really excited. Cody is an indie legend. I don’t know if you guys know this, but Cody, when he got released from WWE, he went on the indies and joined the most successful faction possible immediately, took every high-profile booking, and then ran to ROH and took their structure, and then ran to Tony Khan. I don’t know. I’m fascinated by the guy. ‘I’ll open a school to help AEW get new people, ah, I’ll see you later.’ It’s very odd. I have his dad tattooed on my foot so I’m not trying to be rude, but it’s a strange and weird thing. Maybe one day selfishness will catch up to me and I’ll do the same, but not quite,” said Effy.

Cody and Effy never wrestled each other during Cody’s independent run.

Cody is set to headline WrestleMania 39 against Roman Reigns.
