Cody "Stardust" Rhodes / Runnels sent out an interesting tweet today. Runnels has sent a tease that he will be available to work in just under three months. It is unclear what name he will choose as Rhodes is a family name, but not a legal name. At this point, nobody can say for sure who or where he will be working but he added a list of opponents he'd like to work with: Adam Cole, Dalton Castle, Kurt Angle, Chris Hero, The Miracle (Mike Bennett), Moose, Pat Buck, Young Bucks, Trevor Lee, Katsuyori Shibata and Roderick Strong. His tweet was a photo of the list of names and the only words "After 8/19."
As noted, Cody Rhodes will be wrestling Mike Bennett on August 26th and Kurt Angle on August 27th for the Northeast Wrestling promotion in New York. Cody could be making regular appearances for NEW as promoter Mike O'Brien is helping to book him and was very close with Cody's dad Dusty Rhodes. Cody recently tweeted a list of potential opponents that included Angle, Bennett, The Young Bucks, Chris Hero, Dalton Castle, Adam Cole and others. There's speculation that the Hero match could come at EVOLVE 66 on August 19th in Joppa, MD but that has not been announced by the promotion. Cody has told people working on his bookings to get matches with as many people on that list as possible. According to those close to Cody, right now he's very adamant about showing everyone what he thinks he can do.
