Cody Rhodes has been working non stop since leaving WWE a few years ago, and when a fan on Twitter asked Cody to name the greatest wrestler in the world a few weeks ago, he named himself.
Me by a large margin.
Not being bias. Kenny was the best. I beat him right in the middle. Fact. https://t.co/v81SsfngVh

It looks like his stance hasn’t changed on that subject, as Sports Illustrated asked him to name the top 5 wrestlers in the world today, and he put himself at the top of the list.
“In the modern era of reality is reality versus perception is reality, it’s simple. I am the best in the world. It’s 1: Cody; 2: Kenny [Omega]; 3: [Kazuchika] Okada; 4: Charlotte; 5: [John] Cena, with [Will] Ospreay creeping up on the list. It’s my responsibility with the event to live up to that ranking. I am unbelievably good at this, because of hard work and dedication.”
Cody also talked about his run with The Bullet Club so far, and noted that he thinks the current incarnation of The Bullet Club may never be topped.
“As the leader of the Bullet Club, I can’t slow down now. I am an example for everybody who thought just slapping the Bullet Club logo on you would define your career. The Bullet Club keeps New Japan Pro Wrestling in the black. Far in the black. Because of me. I’m a part-timer in that company and I hold the Tokyo Dome merchandising record and Osaka’s. Funkos. Bucks on a career run. This Bullet Club may never be topped.”
