“The American Nightmare” is the top babyface of WWE currently

Cody Rhodes is one of the biggest babyfaces in the active WWE roster, since his return to the company in 2022. He has been having a huge fanbase for himself and for the charismatic character he is. Rhodes has been influential among fans and is celebrated all over the world.

With the support of the fans, he did the unthinkable by dethroning Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 and became the Undisputed WWE Champion. As Cody Rhodes is being the face of the company, he was asked about whether he would turn heel & Cody responded to the question.

Cody Rhodes on turning heel

In a recent interview on Cheap Heat with Peter Rosenberg, ‘The American Nightmare’ Cody Rhodes was asked if there is any possibility of turning heel and what that would look like for him. To which Cody Rhodes said that he also had the thought, but he thinks he doesn’t see it. Cody says that he is booed enough and claims that this is who he is after a trial & error. He then compared the thoughts with his last days in AEW as a heel and said he doesn’t want to be so full.

Cody Rhodes said,

“I think I’m lying if I say that I don’t think about it. The truth is, I’m so caught up in the connection that I have, whether it’s the friendship bracelets I get at the shows or these moments you have with the kids in full cosplay. This new generation of fans that will grow up and have podcasts and radio shows, I’m so invested in them.“

“It’s rare when I think outside of what about a version of me that is hated, that is disliked, that is booed? I’ve certainly been booed before and booed heavily. I think minimally about it. You never say never. John’s (turn) never happened, and rightfully so. What we got there, we look back and realize the magic of what John was able to do,”

“With the time I have left contract-wise, I don’t see it. Never say never. Absolutes are the worst thing in sports entertainment and pro wrestling. Here is the tricky part; all this stuff about me usually gets people booed in the first place. There are old-head podcaster types who can’t understand it. They can’t get it. ‘Why is he using big words? Why does he have a suit on? He should be a man of the people.'”

“I would be such a fraud if I was trying to be like the common man Dusty Rhodes gimmick. This is who I am and who I became. It was through trial and error because my last days at AEW were certainly a heel run. They were loud and proud. I like what we’ve captured here. I don’t want to be so full of myself, but I want to make sure we honor these young fans. These little kiddos.”
