Cody Rhodes On Fans Wanting Him To Turn Heel: I Don’t Know If They Know What They’re Asking For

Undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes says it would be “scorched earth” if he turned heel.

Speaking on The Pivot Podcast, Cody Rhodes discussed the challenges of being a heel today. He brought up how some fans want to see him turn.

“There’s a beauty if you can commit to being a bad guy,” Cody Rhodes said. “It’s a unique space creatively. You’ve gotta be really vulnerable and open, and you’ve gotta be blood-hungry in terms of how you are on the microphone. There’s this growing sect of fans that wants to see that happen for me at some point, and I understand the links…I don’t know if they know what they’re asking for. If you’re really wishing for that, it’s scorched earth.

“Then you might be, ‘We don’t like that. No, that’s rude to that group of people.’ No, no. That’s the job. Someone’s gonna come out here and beat me up in a minute. Before they do, I’m gonna talk my trash, and that’s the thing. You have to really go scorched earth. In 2024, that is hard. That is hard for anyone to understand that you’re not meant there to be cool, you’re not meant there to be the next Rock. You’re meant there to be a bad guy or a bad girl.”

Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton, and Kevin Owens are set to face The Bloodline at WWE Money in the Bank.
