WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes released from the company

Arindam Paul / 23 May 2016

It was earlier reported that with no whatsoever storyline going with Cody Rhodes aka Stardust, WWE may very well is on the verge to release the veteran superstar who is the roster for almost ten long years with nothing in hand as he came down to fulfill his duty of a jobber’s role. Earlier Cody Rhodes has asked for his release from WWE via Twitter which took the internet fraternity by storm. Though the news was there that WWE is about to fire some more superstars to complete their roster thinning process this season, there was no indication that Rhodes himself was eager to get released from WWE.
Here was his official tweet:

Though Rhodes has been performing as the Stardust persona in WWE for the past few years, he has maintained @PrinceCGR as a personal Twitter account which is based on his personal life rather than his wrestling one by which he decided to break his decision of leaving WWE.
Hours after that, WWE released an official statement on their website about the release of Cody Rhodes and posted the same as given below:
“WWE has come to terms on the release of Cody Rhodes as of today, May 22, 2016. WWE wishes Rhodes the best in all his future endeavors.”

After the news broke out, no whatsoever response had come from his fellow wrestlers in WWE which is quite surprising. Though, his friends and family raised their voice to support the youngest Rhodes prior to the official announcement on wwe.com which includes former announcer Kyle Edwards, Arrow Star Stephen Amell with whom he had an amazing rivalry and last but not the list, his wife Brandi Rhodes aka WWE announcer Eden Stills, who tweeted out to support her husband.

In his ten-year career span Cody Rhodes won the Intercontinental title twice and the tag team title in six different occasions. He will not find difficulty to find another stable to fit inside another wrestling promotion like TNA. Ring of Honor etc. provided that he decides to continue with his wrestling career.
