Cody Rhodes’ decision to have the “Nightmare Family” logo tattooed on his neck was a big topic of discussion on Sat., Feb. 29 when he debuted it at AEW Revolution.
Much of the reaction was not favorable (and I didn’t know this needed to be said, but since it came up in the comments & on social media, the criticism was for the design & placement of the tattoo - not Cody as a person).
Among those who aren’t fans? Cody’s wife Brandi. She revealed as much during her post-Revolution media scrum with the new tag team it looks like she’ll be managing, Dustin Rhodes & QT Marshall:
“I’m also the one person who doesn’t like the neck tattoo. I don’t like it. I’ve said it. There it is. Sorry, I don’t, I don’t like it. [Dustin asks if he can get “Brandi” tattooed on his lip] You can do whatever the f - the hell you want, it’s your body, same thing I told my husband...
I knew. I know a lot of wives like to hands on - my husband makes his own decisions. he’s allowed to make his own decisions. So if I decide to do something crazy, he’s just gonna let me make my own decision.”
Uh-oh, Cody. I think you owe her one.
For his part, Rhodes says it was a branding decision. He also promises more information on his weekly Road To pre-show for this week’s Dynamite.

I’m humbled by the run I’ve been on and the love of the fans. Incredibly lucky man. It was very simple, I wear a lot of brands...I wanted to make sure mine was one of them. And I wasn’t hiding it. More details on tomorrow’s “Road To Denver”... - thank you @inkanddaggertattoo @craigbrocktattoo for taking the design and making it a reality!
How about you? Has the new ink grown on you? Or are you still more or less where you were on Saturday night when you first saw it?
