AEW’s TNT Champion Cody Rhodes recently spoke with ComicBook.com about the comparisons some fans make between the look of his gear and Homelander.
The superhero character appears on ‘The Boys,’ and he is a villain that is positioned in the typical heroic role.
However, Cody stated that his ring gear wasn’t done on purpose, even though it did create a parallel.
“I never want to ruin it for anybody. I never judge our fans or hold them accountable. They pay their money.
They can do whatever they’d like. That’s the beauty of being a fan,” Cody said.
“But I can tell you Sandra Gray, who’s been making my gear since Dashing Cody Rhodes, has no idea about Homelander.
And now, that jacket is forever synonymous with it, but it is a really unique parallel.
“I know people have a lot of fun with fan art where it’s concerned.
With what’s happening with me and the reactions, I don’t want to ruin it for anybody,” he said.
“But I feel like the luckiest wrestler alive that we’re able to cause this polarity, that we’re able to have every show be click baited and discussed.” 0 seconds of 23 secondsVolume 0%
