It’s a big week for the ‘American Nightmare’ Cody Rhodes.  The WWE superstar’s documentary drops today on Peacock.  Then on Saturday, Rhodes will go up against Brock Lesnar, for what looks to be in the final time in their heated feud.

However, first comes the documentary. When viewers and fans see American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes it will chronicle the popular babyface from his early childhood to living in the shadows of his legendary father, WWE Hall-of- Dusty Rhodes.  It will also share how he battled with the nepotism that came with the ‘Rhodes’ name and much more.

In a very impressive and cinematic experience, the Cody Rhodes documentary takes you on the twist and turns, the rise and falls in his career and behind the scenes with his pro wrestling family.  This includes his time as executive vice-president and the major star of AEW.  Rhodes made the move back to the WWE and left a lucrative role and deal with the TBS/TNT wrestling brand in February 2022.  By April of 2022, Cody wanted one more shot and to ‘finish the story’ he aborted back in 2016 when he left Vince McMahon’s major league wrestling brand.

In an interview with Scott Fishman at TV Insider, Rhodes opened up about a myriad of subjects to promote the documentary on Peacock.  Cody shared on his time and departure from AEW, “You’re not going to catch me saying a bad word about AEW. I’m very proud of what I created. I know the things I created with others, Mat and Nick (Jackson), Kenny (Omega) Dana (Massie), Brandi, Tony (Khan), etc. You won’t catch me saying anything bad about it. It was a very wonderful season of my life. It was an incredibly rewarding time. Maybe it ended in a murky fashion, but by gosh, look at where we are right now. I can’t look at this more than it is a wonderful journey.”

Cody also expressed how he felt his dad “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes would have felt if he saw how Cody lost at this year’s WrestleMania 39 in the main event to Roman Reigns: “As smart as my dad was and I consider him among the guys who are super geniuses in sports entertainment in terms of how to layout and carefully craft a story and create a character and help that character connect. Even with his experience and resume, he would have been coming to WrestleMania as a dad. As a dad, he would have not liked the outcome. He would have struggled with the outcome. But he has been there.”

Make sure to catch American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes premiering July 31st, on Peacock.

The series formerly with CBS and now airing on OWN, will air Heche’s last performance this Saturday, September 30th at 9pm ET/8 pm CT.  On All Rise, Heche plays lawyer Corrine Cuthbert.  Since season 2, Heche has taken on the recurring role. She appeared in six episodes.

Y&R’s Jess Walton On Why Mamie Irks Jill As Feud Reignites: “It’s Mamie’s Arrogance and How Much She Enjoyed Stepping on Jill’s Toes All These Years”

On recent episodes of The Young and the Restless, viewers learned that Mamie Johnson (Veronica Redd) is back and is actually the new secret investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Mamie told Nate (Sean Dominic) that she is looking forward to watching Jill’s (Jess Walton) head explode when it is finally revealed. Those remarks date back to Jill and Mamie’s longstanding feud and history; when Mamie was the Abbott family housekeeper, and both women had relationships with the late John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).

This current story will feature Jess Walton in an arc that pits her against Veronica Redd, and should delight longtime Y&R viewers who have loved the often catty remarks and fireworks between Jill and Mamie.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Jess Walton spoke about why Jill has such an issue with Mamie. The Daytime Emmy-winning star expressed, “It’s Mamie’s arrogance and how much she enjoyed stepping on Jill’s toes all of these years. Mamie had always been judging Jill who in turn just hated the influence Mamie had with John.  When Jill was married to him, she never felt welcome in her own home.”

Walton went on to say on this new storyline development: “As far as she (Jill) is concerned that disrespect is continuing because Mamie bought into Chancellor-Winters without letting Jill know.”

Y&R fans can look forward to more of Jess on-screen in the next few months as she informed SOD, she will be taping scenes in October and November on the top-rated soap opera.

When all is said and done, Jess shared that her Genoa City alter-ego is very clear on just how Mamie gets under her skin: “Mamie was always so damn sanctimonious and hollier-than-thou and that always pissed Jill off. Mamie still knows how to really push Jill’s buttons.”

Check out the flashback scenes below featuring Veronica Redd and Jess Walton that were part of this week’s episodes of Y&R; where Mamie is revealed to be a now major investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Now let us know, are you looking forward to seeing the sparks fly between Jill and Mamie in the coming weeks? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
