We noted in previous updates that Cody Rhodes cannot use his last name when appearing with TNA or Ring of Honor, because WWE has trademarked the name “Cody Rhodes.” Brandi Rhodes, on the other hand, is allowed to use the Rhodes name as WWE never trademarked her name when appearing as “Eden.” For the record, Cody Rhodes real name is NOT Cody Rhodes, it’s Cody Runnels.
TNA issued the following announcement on Cody’s arrival earlier today and the first draft had several mentions of “Cody Rhodes” but as seen below, the updated announcement is back to using just Cody.
IMPACT WRESTLING Signs Cody!
Rumors were buzzing last Friday as TMZ Sports announced that Brandi Rhodes, a former In-Ring Announcer, would be joining the IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Roster. On Monday, TNA Management confirmed those rumors to be true.
So it was official, Brandi Rhodes would be joining the IMPACT Wrestling team, but there was much speculation about her husband, Cody.
On Thursday, we saw a tease of who would be making their way to IMPACT. The world went wild with guesses and possibilities!
But during Thursday night’s IMPACT on POP, we got confirmation. Cody is coming to IMPACT. And he’ll be making his arrival at Bound For Glory on October 2.
A game-changer to say the least. But what does this mean? What will happen when Cody makes his presence felt at Bound For Glory? And who does he have his eye on?
So many unanswered questions and so much to learn in the future. Being at Bound For Glory 2016, will be one of the best decisions that you will make all year. Purchase your VIP Package Today to be able to witness the Glory up front and honest at Bound For Glory.
