Cody Rhodes On Not ‘Feeling Right’ in WWE and Needing Leave, Why Bullet Club Is Successful In ROH and NJPW

NJPW and ROH star Cody Rhodes recently spoke with FOX Sports Australia to promote NJPW’s upcoming Australian tour, and below are some interview highlights.

On leaving WWE:

“In WWE, you’re always given the opportunity,” he said.

“They have such a large brand — you’re on the (WWE) Network, you’re on YouTube, you’re on USA Network (the US TV home of Monday Night Raw), you’re on so many platforms. I just think it didn’t feel right. I don’t know what specifically.

“Maybe I just wasn’t meant to do Stardust as long as I had done it, so it didn’t feel right. I remember putting some concept art together for what I would look like as just Cody Rhodes, as just Cody, the wrestler.

“And it really just appealed to me in such a way that if I couldn’t do it in WWE, I thought well, I’ve saved my money, I know a little bit about the game, I’m going to go and do it on my own and see how I do. And it ended up being the best decision I’ve ever made.”

On Bullet Club’s success in ROH and NJPW:

“It’s total freedom. And I don’t think it’s fear. I don’t think that New Japan and Ring of Honor are afraid of the Bullet Club, they’re aware,” Rhodes said.

“Particularly Being the Elite — they’re aware that it’s only a good thing, because it’s a platform for talent to succeed.”
