Cody Rhodes: Bio

Cody Rhodes

Son of the late WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, the highly proficient Cody Rhodes made his mark in WWE from 2007 to 2016 by capturing two Intercontinental Championships and six Tag Team Championships. Although he was some times "dashing," Rhodes was far more than a pretty face.

Boasting a dangerous arsenal and a tremendous knowledge of the squared circle, Rhodes battled everyone from Randy Orton to The Miz to Rey Mysterio and so many more. 

After departing from WWE to explore other opportunities, The American Nightmare returned at WrestleMania 38 as Seth "Freakin" Rollins' surprise opponent — handpicked by WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon.

Rhodes followed this up by defeating Rollins yet again at WrestleMania Backlash before competing with a torn pectoral muscle in a Hell in a Cell match at WWE Hell in a Cell, once again defeating The Visionary in a gutsy performance that gained the adoration of the WWE Universe worldwide.

Cody Rhodes is back and that's undeniable. He proved that point beyond a doubt when he heroically returned for injury to win the Royal Rumble Match in 2023. 

Rhodes faced off against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39, but unfortunately did not come out victorious. The story continued for The American Nightmare, however, as he was targeted by Brock Lesnar the night after WrestleMania. The two traded victories at Backlash and WWE Night of Champions before Rhodes won the rubber match at SummerSlam. After their match, Lesnar shook Rhodes' hand in a sign of respect.

It would not be long before The American Nightmare would meddle in The Bloodline's business, spearheading the move of "Main Event" Jey Uso to Raw, sending Kevin Owens to SmackDown in the process. Rhodes and Uso would form quite the tandem, picking up the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles from The Judgment Day at WWE Fastlane.

Never forgetting his desire to finish his story, however, Rhodes outlasted 29 other Superstars to win the 2024 Royal Rumble and, with it, the right to challenge a World Champion at WrestleMania.

At WrestleMania XL, Rhodes officially finished the story, ending Roman Reigns' legendary reign to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
