This picture surfaced online of Cody Rhodes at the funeral of Elijah Mainville. Elijah was Cody’s friend, and became known to the wrestling world as future WWE Superstar Drax Shadow. Rhodes cancelled 5 European dates and missed out on potentially thousands of dollars to pay his respects to Mainville and his family.
I think it’s probably a great sign in a relationship where she thinks she looks like crud and I think she’s the most beautiful woman to have ever graced this planet. Don’t mind my ridiculous face💙 b33tle-juice
Stardust / Cody Rhodes asks for his release from the WWE [May 21st, 2016]
Okay, there has to be something really crazy going on right now that many of us aren’t informed on. Among the several WWE superstars who’ve been injured, released, taken off TV, and asked for their release from the company, add Stardust (aka Cody Rhodes) to that list. Today, Rhodes announced on his personal Twitter account that he’s asked for his release from the WWE:
(½) The past ten years have been quite the trek, but as of earlier today I have asked for my release from @WWE
I’ll speak further on the matter shortly. Thank you to all the
pro-wrestling/sports entertainment fans worldwide. Thank you.
As of right now, it hasn’t been made public whether or not Rhodes has been granted his release, but at the age of 30, he’s got more than enough time to dedicate to his future in any possible endeavor. Rhodes was signed with the WWE in 2006, debuting in OVW during the Summer of that year and making his WWE Raw debut less than a year later. He’s a former 2-time Intercontinental champion, a former 6-time Tag Team Champion, and a 2-time Slammy Award winner. Rhodes’ wife, Eden, tweeted the following in response to Cody’s announcement:
It’s amazing how the future was predicted in a wrestling magazine. Cody Rhodes would actually make his WWE debut a decade later in 2007, and he currently goes by the name Stardust. Crazy how things work out!
