We noted back in late 2015 that Cody Rhodes teased a project titled "The Last Cowboy" about his father, WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, to be released in 2017. He wrote:

Cody revealed on "The Ric Flair Show" in part one of a two-part interview that WWE recently offering him a deal was related to a biography of his father, apparently the same project referenced in the above tweet. Cody has been working on the book since his father passed last year.

We recently reported how WWE's Mark Carrano was in touch with Cody about signing some sort of deal, believed to be a Legends deal for merchandising. Cody told Flair he has been working on rights to the book so he will still be able to write it.

It was also reported that Cody was upset when the news of his talks with Carrano leaked as he expected them to remain confidential.
