Cody Rhodes is an American professional wrestler and actor. He is now contracted with WWE and performs on the Raw brand.
He is particularly well-known for his tenure as executive vice president of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) from 2019 to 2022, during which he was the original and record-tying three-time AEW TNT Champion.
Cody Rhodes is one of the most talked-about individuals in wrestling right now. According to former WWE star Justin Gabriel, he and Rhodes had a real-life fight earlier in their careers.
Gabriel wrestled for WWE from 2008 to 2015. The 42-year-old is perhaps most known for being a member of the first Nexus faction in 2010.
He’s been in the ring with Rhodes dozens of times, most notably in early 2012 when they squared off twice on SmackDown and at multiple live events.
On Rene Dupree’s Cafe de Rene podcast, Gabriel discussed his encounter with The American Nightmare.
Gabriel could not specify when the incident happened, but he recalls it taking place during a WWE event in South America.

According to Gabriel, WWE veterans Booker T and Mark Henry intervened to prevent the incident from spiraling out of hand.
Gabriel also joked, “What do you think?!” when asked if he or Rhodes had the upper hand in the battle.
