If you are a fan of Cody, chances are you have seen his pictures, particularly his wrestling boots with the Triforce logo. It is because the 38-year-old is not just a wrestler but a dedicated gamer with a deep love for Nintendo’s “The Legend of Zelda” series. He once shared in an interview how the game has been a constant in his life, which makes it a natural choice to integrate into his wrestling persona. So, just like CM Punk’s famous Pepsi tattoo, the Triforce symbol on Cody’s boots is an emblem of his gaming devotion.

Cody Rhodes also surprised WWE fans with his unique costume choice after the tragic death of the legendary musician David Bowie. Cody painted his face in homage to Bowie’s iconic “Aladdin Sane” album cover as a form of tribute to the famous musician. This unexpected tribute showed Cody is a big fan of Bowie and appreciates his influence on pop culture, especially wrestling.

Cody Rhodes generated mixed reactions with his recent ring attire, reminiscent of Homelander from “The Boys.” While some liked the costume, he was criticized by others who felt a corrupt character like Homelander, as shown in the movie, was the wrong choice for a wrestling hero. However, this has further made many of his fans curious about his character’s development.
