The Internet Won’t Stop Talking About Cody Rhodes’ Neck Tattoo
July 9, 2021
Saturday night saw the stars of All Elite Wrestling return to Chicago, IL for an incredible evening of action at AEW Revolution, live from the WinTrust Arena.
Perhaps the most anticipated match on the card for many fans saw Cody Rhodes finally get his hands on Maxwell Jacob Friedman, in a bloody beating months in the making.
The “American Nightmare” jumped off the top of an extra-tall steel cage, took an actual lashing on live television, and sacrificed ever challenging for the AEW World Championship in pursuit of this match – and yet all people on social media can seem to talk about is the brand new tattoo on his neck!

Rhodes came to the ring surrounded by his friends and family, including Arn Anderson, his wife Brandi, and even a surprise appearance from the Green Arrow himself, Stephen Amell! The large tattoo on his neck, proudly representing his own “Nightmare Family” brand, instantly spread like wildfire across the internet.
If Cody's neck tat is legit, my new dream match is him vs. Jack Gallagher in a match where the loser gets laser removal. Also the winner.

All of y'all shitting on Cody's neck tattoo don't understand the symbolism behind it and that's ok…

I also blame Orange Cassidy’s loss on Cody’s neck tattoo.#AEWRevolution @WrestlingInc
