In a new interview with Robbie Fox of My Mom’s Basement, Cody Rhodes revealed that the moment at Money In The Bank 2013 made him hold back on wanting to leave WWE. He said:
“For them to have got with me that night (at Money in the Bank 2013), a career milestone. I wouldn’t have stayed with WWE as long as I did had that moment not happened… 2013? Oh yeah (I was thinking about leaving WWE)…”
“I feel like after 2011, ‘12, I was already starting to explore the idea in my mind of could I leave home? Could I try something different? And the world was growing.”
“But yeah, 2013, I definitely was at least thinking about putting a foot out the door so, and that was a moment where I went, nope, nope. We’re clearly doing something right but, you know…”
