Juan Rodriguez, aka Johnny Rodz, made a name for himself in over 30 years of work for the WWE.
But he barely ever won a match.
Serving mainly as enhancement talent, it was his job to make his opponents look good. And boy, did he ever do it. Rodriguez was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 1996.
For the past 25 years, he’s helped the rising stars of tomorrow look even better.
During his impressive training career, Rodz has played an extensive role in molding several of the best wrestlers of our time. Stars the likes of the Dudley Boys, Taz, Bill DeMott, Tommy Dreamer and Chris Candido have all passed through Rodz’ training club in Gleason’s gym.
Here’s an inside look at Rodz and what it takes to train with him.
