Not only is Cody Rhodes supremely talented inside the squared circle, a great interview, and dashingly handsome; one half of the Brotherhood has also picked up another trade, directing WWE video content.
In the Season Finale of the Clem Layfield Saga on the JBL & Cole Show featuring Renee Young, Cody Rhodes is on trial for his life in Wrestler’s Court. This episode, directed by Cody Rhodes, features Rhodes under fire from JBL and his star studded list of subpoenaed superstars, for “burglary and slander” as JBL tries to get his show back from the Dashing One. From Clem Layfield, to the Wrestling Bear, Nikki or Brie Bella, and Rhodes’ surprise court appointed attorney, this trial has everything.
If you haven’t been following Cody’s exploits on the Slammy Award winning YouTube series, you’ve been missing out on some fantastic, sometimes absurdist, sometimes surreal, but always hilarious shows. Much like how Bad News Barrett blossomed from an appearance on the JBL & Cole Show, I hope this side of Cody gets more spotlight in the future on Raw and Smackdown, and more opportunities like this directing gig come his way, he’s been fantastic.
For the uninitiated let me catch you up to speed. Months ago, Cody Rhodes ventured to WWE headquarters to find JBL’s nephew Big Clem Layfield after Rhodes’ World Bowling Championship victory and the Golden Boot that goes with it was held in abeyance. After Clem was delivered to Rhodes by Bad News Barrett for some meatloaf, Rhodes grilled Clem on the whereabouts of his golden boot and proposed best friendship to Bad News Barrett. But ultimately Rhodes is still in search of his bowling prize and a new BFF after Barrett handed Rhodes a subpoena to Wrestler’s Court.
So Dennis, be sure to check out part 1 of We The People’s Court, directed by Cody Rhodes. All Rhodes’ lead to next weeks conclusion featuring testimony from Cody’s brother Goldust. If you’re anything like me, after rewatching the entire saga you’ll be demanding the green-lighting of a WWE Network show featuring Cody Rhodes, El Torito, Clem Layfield, and Bad News Barrett, directed by Cody Rhodes, of course.
