Cody Rhodes’ comeback to WWE during WrestleMania 38 was greatly anticipated, and his entrance captivated audiences. He became a huge deal in no time as WWE fully believed in him as well. Rhodes is also known for his bizarre neck tattoo and now it seems he almost got another one long ago.
Rhodes had gotten a massive neck tattoo in 2020 ahead of his match against MJF at the AEW Revolution event. People ridiculed him for it but now they are just used to it.
That being said, he was close to getting another questionable tattoo in the past. While speaking During an appearance on My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox, Rhodes talked about his career so far.
Cody Rhodes revealed that he almost got the faction logo of Legacy tattooed on his hand prior to their Triple Threat showdown at WrestleMania 26 in 2010 when he took on Randy Orton and Ted DiBiase. Thankfully, Kofi Kingston talked him out of it.
“I almost got a tattoo on my hand of the Legacy logo before the match. I want to say, and I hope I’m giving credit to the right guy, Kofi Kingston was the one who told me absolutely not to do that.
Like, yeah, Legacy was cool. Yes, I was excited about having this first real WrestleMania, but it’s not that place on the card that you need this tattoo. I thought, okay. I also liked the L. I thought it was a pretty cool logo, but I didn’t get the tattoo, so Kofi was right.”
Cody Rhodes is set to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 39. We will have to wait and see whether Rhodes can win the match.
