Press Release 

Cody Rhodes grew up living in the shadow of his father, WWE Hall of Famer “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. In 2016, Cody risked it all by leaving WWE to make a name for himself, becoming the “American Nightmare.” This intimate and revealing documentary follows Cody’s journey away from the WWE – and his return at WrestleMania 38 last year, as he chases the dream of winning the WWE championship, the one title his father was never able to claim. Through never-before-seen footage and unprecedented access, this Peacock Original illustrates the transformation of a man who is blazing a new trail in sports entertainment. 



“American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes” premieres July 31. It was directed by Matt Braine, and executive produced by Vincent K. McMahon, Kevin Dunn, Chris Kaiser, Chris Chambers, Ben Houser and Rhodes.

In addition to “American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes,” Peacock Premium subscribers can stream thousands of hours of on-demand programming from WWE such as original series, fan-favorite shows from the WWE archives, and upcoming premium live events, including WWE SummerSlam, streaming on Peacock Aug. 5.
