Freddie Prinze Jr. On Why He Got Emotional After Cody Rhodes’ Royal Rumble Win

Former WWE creative team writer Freddie Prinze Jr. recently took to an episode of his “Wrestling with Freddie” podcast from iHeart Media’s My Cultura Network and spoke about a number of topics, including why he got emotional after “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes’ 30-Man Royal Rumble win at the WWE’s 2023 Royal Rumble Premium Live Event.

Freddie Prinze Jr. said:

“Cody’s up there, you can see him mouth the words, ‘Dad, I did it.’” “Every son that’s lost a father, and then accomplishes great things after their father’s gone, that moment hits you so hard, man. It’s the thing you want to see in movies, you know what I mean? I did that the first time I booked a big job. I went to my father’s grave, put my hand on the plaque, and said, ‘Dad, I did it,’ word for word. So, it just hit me so hard.”
