Photo: Cody Rhodes Explains His New Look

At the NJPW G1 Special press conference on Friday, Cody Rhodes spoke about the reason why he decided to get rid of his blonde hair.

Cody explained at the presser that he got a role on a television show that required him to change his look a little bit.

"I got called to do a TV show, hopefully we can break that news soon," Rhodes said. "It doesn't affect my wrestling dates at all, which means I'll be burning things at both ends, but production is going to fly me to every show I had on the books. I'm not missing a damn thing. It's exactly the type of career I was looking into. I was looking at my two-year plan yesterday for what I want, maybe move into a feature length film, but also keep everything I have with wrestling, because if I lose the wrestling part of my identity then I don't have a clue who I am anymore. I'm very happy about it, but they said no on the blonde."
