Cody Rhodes spoke with Sports Illustrated for a new interview. Some highlights are below:

On working for several promotions at the moment: ďIím about to make a decision. Itís been really fun to cross all the streams, but at this point I do need to find a new home. That is going to limit all the distance I cover, which includes the work Iíve done with companies like Limitless, Defy, and All Pro Wrestling Ė there is even a company in Kolkoska, Michigan where Iím wrestling that is called ĎMr. Chainsawí. If you see my name on a card and youíre a fan, come on out. Iím not sure how much longer it will be until Iím no longer able to roam around.Ē

On not being able to use use the Rhodes name: ďIíll tell you this, and Iíve not told anyone this, but I donít mind that WWE took away my last name. Deep down, in my bones, I definitely want it back Ė and I have plans to get it back Ė but there is something to being Cody. The longer I donít have a last name, the more Iím OK with it. Thatís not to say WWE is holding it ransom. Itís literally an intellectual property law that easily can be remedied, but there is something about being Cody that I donít mind. There is something to not always reminding people of a show theyíve already seen, but instead embracing the one right in front of him. I am Cody, and I can promise you that the future is going to be even better than the past.Ē
