Cody Rhodes is the new Global Force Wrestling Nex-Gen Champion after defeating Sonjay Dutt tonight at WrestleCade’s Showcase of Champions in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Cody spoke to the crowd after his win and shared some advice from his father, saying sometimes the title makes the man, and other times the man makes the title. Cody said he intends to find out which man he is, because tomorrow night he will defend the Nex-Gen title in Edmonton for a company (Prairie Wrestling Alliance) that is not GFW. He continues by saying he will defend it week after week and the difference between them and him is that when he says he is an independent contractor he sure as hell means it. Cody then closes by thanking the crowd for coming and greets the fans before leaving.
Dutt’s reign ends after almost holding the title for a year; he defeated PJ Black for the title back at last year’s WrestleCade Showcase of Champions on November 27th, 2015.
