Former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes recently appeared on a special edition of the STRAIGHT SHOOT podcast where he went into detail about his WWE departure and gave his thoughts on Vince McMahon's feelings towards the Rhodes family.
However, in amongst the candid chatter, the man formerly known as Stardust made a comical revelation about life after the WWE.
No, it was not about his life as an independant wrestler, or the relationships he still keeps in the WWE. In fact, it was about how he watches the WWE Network.

“Of all the other legal things I figured they would hit first, one of the first things they took away was my Network credentials," Rhodes revealed. "I’m now stealing Claudio’s [Cesaro] Network credentials. He knows I’m stealing, I’m borrowing, Claudio’s network credentials.”
How the WWE are likely to feel about Cesaro sharing his Network password with a former employee is sure to be interesting.
One has to wonder why Rhodes isn't allowed to have a network subscription. Sure, they might take away his own company subscription, but surely he would be able to buy one like everybody else?
Maybe he doesn't want to pay. Maybe it's the principle.
Rhodes has been woefully wasted by the WWE. As the son of the famous Dusty Rhodes and half-brother of Goldust, the business runs in Cody's blood and he was one of the sharpest in-ring hands in the company prior to his release earlier this summer.
His path back to the WWE, should he chose to, won't be a nice one if he keeps up with antics like this.
