Cody Rhodes’ story touched many fans through the years as they watched The American Nightmare bet on himself and thrive in the process. That being said, some fans took things a bit too far.

Cody Rhodes is known for a lot of things, including his impressive neck tattoo. It’s unknown what Dusty Rhodes would have said about Cody’s neck ink, but it certainly made an impression.

One fan recently paid tribute to Cody Rhodes in a very bold way. He got an exact replica of Cody Rhodes’ American Nightmare logo tattoo right on his neck, in the same place and size. That is a decision this fan does not regret in the slightest.

This fan went viral on TikTok after showing off his ink. Now, he’s getting even more press as it heals, and Timothy Martin is still incredibly happy.


While speaking with, Martin stated that the video has almost 90,000 views, and he didn’t lose a bet.

“I have no idea how this happened. I’m still trying to dig in and get more information about this. Everything was planned. I got it on March 29. I got it on the week of WrestleMania, and it just blew up from there. Somebody on Reddit said that I lost a bet. It wasn’t a bet.” 

This might not have been a lost bet, but that tattoo was certainly a choice. We’ll have to see if any fans out there decide to top Timothy Martin’s efforts, but he certainly set a high bar.

For what it’s worth, Timothy Martin and Cody Rhodes have met a couple of times. The American Nightmare certainly left an impression on Martin, and one that will never go away, right on his neck.
