Cody Rhodes Reveals Why Brock Lesnar Bout Has No Stipulation

Cody Rhodes explains why his SummerSlam match has no stipulation.

Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar’s issues began on the night after WrestleMania 39 when Lesnar viciously attacked The American Nightmare after originally indicating that he’d team up with Rhodes against Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa.

Since then Rhodes and Lesnar have clashed twice with each man picking up one win over the other and at SummerSlam, it looks like one of the stars will pick up a decisive win to end their feud.

Speaking to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Cody Rhodes explained why the match is going ahead without a stipulation after many believed it would have been given a major one:

“I don’t think either of us would have wanted a stipulation. Neither of us want an out. The stipulation, you can have an out. Neither of us wanted an out. Brock, either you’re going to beat me, or I’m going to beat Brock. Brock may not consider [being me] a big deal, but it is, and in my case, if I was able to pull it out, I can gladly say, what else is there if you’re not only able to beat Brock Lesnar not once but twice? That’s punching a ticket somewhere very lofty and special, and that’s what I want to do.”

Did Cody Rhodes want to say anything nice about Brock Lesnar?

Although Cody Rhodes didn’t want to praise Lesnar, he did note that once The Beast brings the curtain down on his career, people will then realise exactly what they had in him:

“I’m not going to say anything nice about Brock and go on and wax poetic about him, but I will say this, when Brock is not around sports entertainment and wrestling anymore, people will realize, what we had in the Beast. What a presence. What a huge force. We’re living in the most profitable era of WWE, Brock Lesnar is a huge part of that. My hats off to him in regards to that. That’s the only nice thing you’re getting me about Brock.”

Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar will bring an end to their issues at SummerSlam with the match being touted as one of the show’s main events. Given Rhodes’ history in WWE, it might be surprising to know that this will only be his fourth match at SummerSlam with his only win at the event coming in 2013 when he defeated Damian Sandow.
