NoDQ.com > Indy > Cody Rhodes Talks About Not Using Last Name
Posted by Aaron Rift on 12/02/2016 at 10:20 AM

Former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes recently spoke with USA Today and was asked why heís no longer using his ďRhodesĒ last name in ROH and on the indy scene. He also discussed his upcoming match at the ROH Final Battle pay-per-view event, the Dusty Rhodes Tag-Team Classic and more. Here are a few highlights...

On not using his "Rhodes" last name and simply being called "Cody" on the indy scene: ďItís an ongoing situation. Ö I like going by my first name sometimes because itís so silly. They know what last name is. They know where I came from, Ö Itís silly that in the same period that (WWE will) promote a tag team tournament in honor of my dad, that you disallow me to use my last name. But please, please let me say, Iím not mad at anybody and it will work itself out without any type of lawsuit. It will take some time. But in the meantime, Iíll use the one thing they canít take from me and thatís Cody.Ē

On if he was invited to the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Finals and whether he would have gone: ďItís a great question. I was aware and kept in the loop that they were doing the tournament. I wish there had been more communication about whether we were going to be part of the finals, not so much for me. You donít have to call and invite me. I understand I walked away from the company. It would have been nice to put in the call to my mother, though. That was something a little irritating. Dustin was there to represent the family and the brand. The Dusty tag team classic itself is meant to highlight my father. The only people in the ring should be the teams competing. Iíve got no issue with it. Had they called me, I wouldnít have known what my response would have been. Maybe itís a blessing they didnít. I can assure you that I wasnít at home throwing a fit. I am pretty sure I was working somewhere.
