The “American Nightmare” showed up to Ring of Honor’s annual Final Battle pay-per-view this Friday night in grand style, escorted by his lovely wife Brandi and sporting a drastic new look. Cody has officially gone blonde, possibly in homage to his late, great father “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes – possibly as an attempt to land a role in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot.
As previously reported, Cody unfortunately lost the ROH World Championship in the Final Battle main event to the ever-charismatic Dalton Castle. In a minor update, he is still scheduled to face off against the “Golden Star” Kota Ibushi on January 4th at Wrestle Kingdom. That match will now be a non-title special attraction.
You can check out Rhodes’ new bleached-blonde look in the photos and videos below. We were totally kidding about that whole Buffy the Vampire Slayer thing, by the way…
