Cody Rhodes is the new GFW NEX*GEN Champion

Cody Rhodes beat Sonjay Dutt to win the Global Force Wrestling NEX*GEN Championship on Friday night in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in front of a sellout crowd at WrestleCade’s “Showcase of Champions.”

Rhodes is the third man to hold the NEX*GEN title. Dutt won it from PJ Black at this same event one year ago.

GFW founder and CEO Jeff Jarrett witnessed the historic event.

“Sonjay and Cody had a heckuva match,” Jarrett said. “Sonjay has been a great ambassador for GFW and a great champion. Cody is a guy with wrestling in his veins. It’s a new chapter for the NEX*GEN title, and I can’t wait to watch it unfold.”
