Former WWE and Ring of Honor (ROH) Superstar Cody Rhodes took to Twitter on Wednesday, defending his time in WWE and denying the allegations that he was “squandered” by the company. He said,
“I’d politely disagree. I was in a PPV main event by age 24. I was happy/challenged with the trajectory of my career there…even stardust. It stung but it was motivating to see guys pass my sparkly ass by, I saw what I was missing and went out and got it. Do the work.”
They didn’t squander me at all. It was a great place to learn, travel, and grow-up across TV sets. Helped shape the business side of me forever. I just had different aspirations and saw a different path I wanted to take.
