After years at WWE, Dusty Rhodes’ son Cody is changing the industry as a free agent and new champion

Wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes’ son Cody is helping to change the hierarchy of professional wrestling promotions. WWE may still be the biggest promotion in the world, but others are catching up, cultivating audiences, and building monster buzz from Japan to Charlotte. Cody, as he’s known in Ring Of Honor where he’s the current world heavyweight champion, is a rare free agent whose schedule not only includes ROH, but indie shows. He returns to Concord for Ring of Honor’s Queen City Excellence Saturday and recently spoke to the Observer about his role in the changing industry.
