Hollywood megastar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has congratulated Cody on winning the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. Of course, Cody’s big victory came at Saturday night’s big All In pay-per-view from Chicago. Rhodes defeated Nick Aldis in a thrilling contest that delivered one of the most memorable moments of an emotionally charged weekend.
Although we haven’t seen The Rock on WWE television in some time, People’s Champ still follows pro wrestling, as evidenced by his social media activity. The Rock addressed the “real legacy” of the NWA World Championship that Cody is now a part of and told Cody that Dusty is looking down and smiling “BIG!”
Congrats my friend. So f’n cool!
That’s some real legacy and history you’re now a part of. Proud of you. Your pops is lookin’ down and smilin’ BIG! #10LbsOfGold #NWAHeavyweightChamp https://t.co/m9E9DUIKis

Cody thanked The Rock for paving the road for him and his peers. Cody and The Rock have more in common than meets the eye. In addition to having fathers who were wrestling superstars, both men have ventured into acting and both have expressed an interest in political careers.
All in the family!
Thank you for paving the road for us. https://t.co/rQwp6dWRoq
