ROH Champion Cody spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News about facing Minoru Suzuki at Friday’s Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view. “He’s a maneater,” Cody said of the ROH Title challenger. “He’s a throwback in a sense to an era where you’d go to shows and you know you couldn’t kick that guy’s ass. It’s unlike any match type I’ve ever been faced with and it presents a very well-developed picture for me in the sense that I am a pro wrestler. Minoru Suzuki is a pioneer in the world of mixed martial arts. And he, as a professional wrestler, is an absolute legend.”
Cody also spoke about his future and which company he will sign with. “I think 2018, we’re (Cody and his wife Brandi) going to make a decision probably between New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor or both,” explained Cody. “Or we’re going to make the decision to go right back on the complete independent brand tour. Who knows. I got my feel of the lay of the land and now I know how I want to approach the next year.” Read the full interview at SportingNews.com.
