Rhodes is the son of the late WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes and the half-brother of WWE wrestler Goldust. After an amateur wrestling career that resulted in becoming a two-time Georgia state champion, he followed his father and older brother’s footsteps into the professional ranks and joined WWE in 2006, initially being assigned to the company’s developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW).

After becoming a Triple Crown Champion in OVW, he was elevated to WWE’s main roster in 2007 and remained there for 9 years, performing under his real name and later as Stardust. During his time with WWE, Rhodes became a two-time Intercontinental Champion and was a prolific tag team wrestler, winning six tag team championships (three World Tag Team Championships and three WWE Tag Team Championships) with four separate tag team partners. Rhodes left WWE after requesting his release in May 2016.

Following his departure from WWE, Rhodes began wrestling on the independent circuit, also making several appearances in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. In the time frame spanning from early 2016 to early 2017, he competed at WWE’s WrestleMania, ROH’s Final Battle and NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom events as well as appearing for Impact Wrestling at Bound for Glory (albeit in a non-competing capacity). In September 2017, Rhodes signed a multi-year deal with Ring of Honor, where he became a one-time ROH World Champion and a one-time ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champion (with The Young Bucks)

After starting up All Elite Wrestling with Tony Khan and The Elite in 2019, Cody finally claimed his first AEW Championship when he defeated Lance Archer at Double Or Nothing 2020. Mike Tyson was on hand to present him the TNT Championship.
