Cody Rhodes has confirmed in a new episode of the NWA Ten Pounds of Gold web series that will be a free agent from the next day of the new year, on January 1, 2019. Rhodes currently holds the NWA Heavyweight Championship after beating Nick Aldis in All In.
“January 1 will be a very difficult day for me, I suppose it will be taboo to talk about this, but I think it’s the best time to talk about it, I become a free agent: I want to see what the market offers me. “
Rhodes also talked about how he feels after working exclusively for ROH. ” Seeing how this year of exclusivity was with Ring of Honor, I had a lot of fun, they presented me with many challenges, looking at what I did with New Japan Pro Wrestling, looking at what we did with All In, the year has been unrepeatable.”
Cody finished the interview by assuring that he will defend the NWA championship wherever he goes: “No matter where I go if I stay with Ring of Honor if I go back to WWE if I commit myself to New Japan Pro Wrestling full time. in the NWA Heavyweight champion, and travel around the world to defend this precious belt. “
