Cody Rhodes, one of professional wrestling's most prominent figures, recently sat down with Sam Roberts to discuss his new documentary, "Becoming Cody Rhodes," which is available on NBC's streaming service, Peacock. In a candid and revealing conversation, Rhodes opened up about his journey from amateur wrestling to WWE superstardom, his independent wrestling detour, and his instrumental role in establishing All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
The film, a poignant narrative of the American Nightmare's storied wrestling career, ends on a somewhat bittersweet note with Rhodes' defeat at WrestleMania 39 by Roman Reigns. This moment of introspection prompted Rhodes to share his deep-seated feelings of having disappointed the documentary crew.
“To be honest, I felt like I had let them down," Rhodes admitted. "The narrative usually culminates with the protagonist victorious, and that wasn't the case here." However, he acknowledged the importance of allowing the documentary team to portray their version of his story, without any interference.
He praised the film as a balanced and truthful account of his life and career.
