Cody Rhodes calls himself The American Nightmare but his life almost turned into a real nightmare as his tour bus caught fire, but he made it out unscathed. Rhodes has now disclosed how his bus caught fire in the first place.

As previously noted, Cody Rhodes revealed today that his tour bus caught fire last night ahead of WrestleMania 40. Naturally, this shocked fans in a really big way.

While speaking on the Pat McAfee show, Cody Rhodes talked about the circumstances leading to his bus catching fire. He then revealed he was able to take photos of his wife and daughter and his WrestleMania boots and thankfully recovered other things from the bus as well.

”Last night, 1 AM, laying in bed, all of a sudden, loud bang at the side of my bus. Thought it was a gunshot, climbed up, next thing I know my bus driver yells, ‘We gotta get off this bus it’s on fire.’ So my bus, it didn’t burn to a crisp, but it was up in a big fireball for a moment. I’m here this morning, non-flinching, I grabbed two things off my bus when I thought this is the end – I grab a photo of my daughter and wife and my WrestleMania boots. There ain’t nobody here who is more ready for WrestleMania than me. We got a lot of stuff out of there, thankful for that.”


In a high-stakes showdown on Night 1 of WrestleMania 40, Rhodes and his partner Seth Rollins will square off against The Rock and Roman Reigns and on Night 2, Rhodes battles Roman Reigns, therefore a lot of drama is already happening before the show begins. We’ll have to see what will become of Cody Rhodes in the end.
