“Before you hear it elsewhere – my tour bus caught fire last night,” Rhodes wrote on X. “Everybody is safe and okay  The 2 items I grabbed before I got off will probably pop wrestling fans.

“Again, thank you @PhillyFireDept.”

He later told Pat McAfee on his radio show the fire started around 1 a.m. ET as he was about to go to sleep. He said his driver noticed the flames and urged everyone to get off the bus immediately. He grabbed his WrestleMania boots and some pictures before leaving.

“I think the universe was saying, ‘Hey, we’re going to set your bus on fire and you’re still going to go in and wipe the floor with The Bloodline on Saturday. You’re still going to do it,” he added.

Rhodes’ match at Night 1 of WrestleMania may have implications on Night 2.
