As the name suggests, William Morris Endeavor is also known as Endeavor, the parent company of WWE. Endeavor finalized its $9 billion acquisition of WWE in September 2023 with the merger of WWE and UFC into TKO Group Holdings. By teaming with Endeavor, Rhodes has become the first WWE Superstar to be represented by WME post the 2023 acquisition.

While Rhodes has yet to receive his breakout role in Hollywood, he does have some acting credits to his name. In 2010, Cody played ‘Kurt Smoller’ on an episode of Warehouse 13, and serves as the romantic interest for the show’s female lead Myka. Their date goes awry when Myka switches bodies with the show’s male lead Pete due to a magical idol the two had been investigating resulting with Pete-in-Myka going on the date instead.

From 2016 to 2018, Rhodes played the near-invulnerable Derek Sampson on Arrow, the CW’s take on the DC Comics character Green Arrow. Rhodes would also feud with Green Arrow actor Stephen Amell in WWE with Amell ending up victorious in a tag-team match at WWE SummerSlam 2015.
