MJF Reveals Cody Rhodes Invited His Mother To WWE SmackDown

Tickets for MJF's mother from Cody Rhodes

While they may have been on-screen rivals, MJF and Cody Rhodes have remained cordial outside of the squared circle. 

Discussing their friendship on Rasslin', MJF called Rhodes a "sweetheart" before he revealed The American Nightmare invited his mother to the recent WWE SmackDown taping in Long Island. 

"We still talk sometimes to this day. Cody Rhodes is a sweetheart. He texted my parents and offered them tickets for the Long Island show for SmackDown. They couldn't go. They were busy, but I mean, it was very sweet of him to do. Have you seen his baby? What a cute baby," MJF said. 

WWE taped SmackDown at the Nassau Coliseum on Friday, May 6.

MJF was initially Cody's protege during the early months of AEW but Friedman turned on Rhodes at Full Gear 2019, preventing The American Nightmare from ever challenging for the AEW World Title again. They then had a high-profile match at Revolution 2020, which Friedman won. 

Rhodes departed All Elite Wrestling in February 2022 and returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38 a couple of months later. He has since established himself as one of the top babyfaces in Vince McMahon's company.
