At AEW Revolution 2020, Cody Rhodes debuted his new Nightmare Family logo neck tattoo. The neck tattoo was the talk of the event, even distracting from his fight with MJF.
Although fans have gotten used to the tattoo, it will always remain visible given the prominence and position on Cody’s body.
Since returning to WWE at WrestleMania 38, Cody has been able to retain the American Nightmare brand, with WWE even turning the Nightmare Family logo into a giant CGI for his entrance.
Talk to Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso Cody discussed his neck tattoo and revealed that WWE Shop will start selling temporary tattoos of the logo.
“Vince [McMahon] didn’t say anything [negative] about the tattoo,” Rhodes said. “I was waiting for some of these guys who knew me at the time to say something, especially Bruce [Prichard] and Michael Hayes. Even Randy [Orton] didn’t say anything, and it came as a shock to me because I wasn’t a tattoo artist and he was covered. But it’s a good thing to have. The temporary tattoos are going to be released by WWE Shop, and people now see it as an extension of me. It is what it is. When I was here before, everyone was trying to tell me who I was. It wasn’t a bad thing – I was looking too. Now I reach my final form. That’s why I stick to my guns about my character, keeping it as close to who I am as possible. But I promise you this: I won’t have another.
It’s unclear when the temporary tattoos will be released.
Cody is currently feuding with Seth Rollins, who attacked him during his WWE US Title match last Monday on WWE Raw. Rhodes defeated Rollins at WrestleMania 38 and WrestleMania Backlash.
Fightful will have live WWE Raw coverage starting at 8 p.m. ET.
