Rhodes hails from a wrestling background and is a second generation WWE Superstar, with his father The American Dream Dusty Rhodes a legend in the promotion and his half-brother Goldust is also a professional for the promotion.
The young Cody began going to pro wrestling matches from a very young age and when he was in high school, he used to referee matches in his father’s promotion. He started wrestling professionally at the beginning of 2006 after being signed on to the Ohio Valley Wrestling, which was the training circuit for the WWE. While he was fighting in the OVW, Rhodes became a huge name and won plenty of titles, both in the tag team and individual circuits including the OVW Heavyweight Championship.
After impressing in the OVW, the WWE gave Cody Rhodes the chance to appear on their televised shows and he began his televised career in 2007 and by the end of the year, he had captured his first title in the promotion, winning the World Tag Team Championship with Hardcore Holly as his partner. However, after two months partnering Holly, he formed a secret alliance with Ted Di Biase Jr. and during a match, turned on Holly.
He held the World Tag Team Championship with his new friend and later, teamed up with Randy Orton to form The Legacy. Since then, Cody Rhodes has been in and out of the main frame of the WWE and has had to bear the brunt of many fans where as some others have blamed the WWE for ruining the career of one of the most promising wrestlers in the promotion.
