Cody Rhodes is no stranger to projects away from the wrestling ring and now it has come to light that one of those projects was spear-headed by the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer, Eric Bischoff.
Cody Rhodes’ mission to finish his story in WWE and capture a world championship has been derailed in recent weeks thanks to Dominik Mysterio. Rhodes and Mysterio will clash one-on-one at Money In The Bank as two of wrestling’s “royal” families face off.
Speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff revealed that his daughter Montanna was the driving force behind Cody Rhodes’ reality series Rhodes To The Top which aired during his time in AEW:
“My daughter actually Montanna is responsible for Cody’s first reality show, ‘Rhodes to the Top’. She hired the show runner. She knew him and she knew that he’d be great because she knew he was a wrestling fan. Before anybody else got involved, she got that show on the board at Turner. Now a lot of people came in and took credit for it afterwards, which is usually the case, but that was her passion project.”
Rhodes To The Top aired for six episodes in late 2021 as it followed both Cody and Brandi Rhodes’ trials and tribulations alongside those of some other AEW stars such as Ricky Starks and Preston Vance.
