Update: He got his answer.
This came out of nowhere:
(1/2) The past ten years have been quite the trek, but as of earlier today I have asked for my release from @WWE— Hyrule Husky (@PrinceCGR) May 21, 2016
(2/2) I'll speak further on the matter shortly. Thank you to all the pro-wrestling/sports entertainment fans worldwide. Thank you— Hyrule Husky (@PrinceCGR) May 21, 2016
That's Cody Rhodes on his personal Twitter account revealing that he has asked WWE to release him. Rhodes has been working as Stardust dating back to June 2014 but the character never really caught on beyond leading to actor Stephen Amell working a tag match at SummerSlam. He's teased going back to his original character at various points, but it never happened. His father, Dusty Rhodes, who he was very close with, died in June of last year, though it's unclear if that has played a role in his decision here. He said last year that he continued working as the Stardust character to honor his dad.
Stay tuned for more as it comes in.
