Cody Says He’s Transitioning To A New Role In Wrestling

Cody Rhodes lost the NWA World Heavyweight Championship back to Nick Aldis at the NWA 70th Anniversary pay-per-view. The Best of 3 Falls main event delivered in a big way and the show is getting strong reviews from fans who tuned in.

Cody posted a message on Instagram reflecting on the event and what’s next for him. The second generation grappler thanked the fans who attended and watched live on FITE.TV. Towards the end of his message, he also states that he is transitioning to a new role in pro-wrestling and implies he will be finishing up with Ring of Honor in the new future. Interesting.

Cody Rhodes Reacts to NWA 70th Anniversary

“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. 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! -CR”
