Downstait Reveals Part Of Cody Rhodes’ Theme Song Is Related To His Past

Cody Rhodes

When Cody Rhodes decided to leave WWE in 2016, he did so with a desire for creative control of his character, and to forge his own path.

Rhodes wanted to create his own entrance music as part of his plans. The American Nightmare teamed up with the band Downstait to record the song Kingdom.

The song opens with Rhodes speaking about his family’s legacy, and throughout the lyrics are references to his life and decision-making.

Now the band has confirmed that Rhodes’s previous WWE entrance music, Smoke & Mirrors, also appears in his current song.

Responding to a question on Twitter asking Downstait about the connection, the band confirmed that they had been fans of the grandson of a plumber since he started, and wanted to include a nod to the WWE creation.

What they are referring to is the Cody Rhodes’ Kingdom song having the “WHOA-OH” part that the fans shout and when Cody was doing the “Dashing” gimmick, there was also a “whoa-oh” part to that.

Since returning to WWE last year, Rhodes has established himself as a leading babyface and shared his desire to become WWE Champion.

Cody Rhodes is set to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania Backlash on May 6th, looking to avenge the brutal beating The Beast dished out the Raw after WrestleMania 39.

Lesnar has opened up about his future in WWE and has hinted at how long fans will be able to enjoy seeing the former UFC Champion in competition.

With WWE now under the same parent company as UFC, Lesnar could be used to help should the two companies wish to create crossover storylines.

Dana White, President of UFC, has discussed his feelings on potential WWE Superstars appearing on MMA programming.

Lesnar’s WrestleMania 39 opponent Omos will also be in action at Backlash, facing Seth Rollins in a surprise announcement.

A mixed reaction has been seen by fans and media across social media after the one-on-one was added to the card.
