Former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes gave an interview with the Mirror recently where he talked about the WWE’s presence in the UK.

Rhodes, who is the son of Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, requested his release from the WWE back in 2016. Since then he’s mostly been wrestling in the independent circuit, most notably in Ring Of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, where he was part of the Bullet Club.

Rhodes has been taking a break from in-ring competition due to a knee injury. According to Rhodes, it is a meniscus tear or “severe sprain”.

“I got the MRI and there was good news in that I don’t have to get reconstructive surgery because all my ligaments are intact, but that meniscus had a second tear. That second tear is why I heard a ‘pop’ in the ring and why I knew something was wrong. But I’m doing everything I can. I’ve got a brace for it, like one of those big Steve Austin braces, I don’t know if I’m going to be comfortable in it or not, but I’m trying to kind of wear it around the house and get used to it,” said Rhodes.

He also gave his thoughts about the WWE placing contract restrictions on the NXT UK stars.

“Well, I think it just means more opportunity. There is obviously a deep roster of talent and maybe some talent we’re not seeing because we’re seeing so many NXT UK guys, that we all know are wonderful. I saw a tweet that Pete Dunne put out that I really liked too though.”

“There is such a tendency to jump on WWE and talk bad about them in terms of these contracts and what they are doing. But with the people they have in place, Johnny Saint,William Regal, and Triple H, and how he is, there is no secret plan to destroy the indy scene in the UK. They just see a wonderful product and they want to protect their guys,” said Rhodes.
