Cody Rhodes is certainly one of the most beloved WWE stars, which many fans did not expect. Apart from pro wrestling, he has other interests and that includes football. Now Rhodes has made it clear he wants The Philadelphia Eagles to win the Super Bowl LVIII.
The American Nightmare has admitted in the past that he is not necessarily loyal to any football team as such. While he was in AEW, Rhodes was a supporter of Tony Khan’s Jacksonville Jaguars.
Now that he is with WWE, Cody Rhodes is free to choose another team he supports and this time around it’s the Philadelphia Eagles. While speaking on Gabby AF, Cody Rhodes stated that he wants The Philadelphia Eagles to win the Super Bowl LVIII and ‘finish the story.’
“What’s happened is, my NFL loyalty is up for grabs, really is up for grabs. I’ll tell you who, the team that’s got it this year is the Philadelphia Eagles. Here’s why. They’re the Eagles, they’re a great franchise, but I went to the media day for WrestleMania 40 at the stadium. These stadiums are, I mean, this is the prime location for a billions-of-dollars franchise, and to let me, ‘Oh yeah, you can walk on the field. Oh yeah, do your interview over there. We’re so excited to have WrestleMania here. Do whatever you want.’
The warmth in which they welcomed me, and then on the way out, gave me a full bag of stuff for my daughter, a jersey for me, it got me hook, line, and sinker. It’s very fair-weather. I move quickly. I was with the Jags [Jacksonville Jaguars] a few seasons ago, I was all about Jags life, everything like that, hosting draft parties. But I’m hoping the Eagles have a great season, go to the Super Bowl, finish their story because they’ve been my team this year. I like a lot of NFL teams, but the Eagles got me this year.”
The Eagles lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. We will have to wait and see whether The Philadelphia Eagles will be able to avenge their loss from last year and finish the story.
