Cody Rhodes comments on his contractual status with WWE following internet reports

At the end of 2023, it was reported that WWE was looking to lock down Cody Rhodes to a multi-year contract extension. During an interview with Justin Walker, Cody commented on his contractual status with WWE when asked about retirement plans…

“I can tell you 40 is out of the question just because, not to give you scoop, it was widely reported, but I did sign a new contract with WWE. It extends beyond my 40th birthday.

The plan is still, when it’s time to step out, to step out without it being a painful process. Solely because I saw my dad [Dusty Rhodes] as an old man wrestler and he loved it and enjoyed it, but as his son it was hard to see. My daughter is two going on three, there does have a be a time, just like he was with us, where I have to be home all the time and be there with her. It’s not 40 anymore. I’ll update the number. I hit the prime run late in the game. I often forget that I’m nearing 40.”

Cody, who is 38, is scheduled to challenge Roman Reigns for the undisputed WWE Universal title at Wrestlemania 40.
