Cody Rhodes is not done with Brock Lesnar despite the former WWE Champion making Rhodes pass out at Night of Champions.
The issues between Lesnar and Rhodes date back to the night after WrestleMania 39 when an embittered Rhodes challenged Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa to a tag team match. With Paul Heyman laying down several stipulations that made it unlikely for anyone to want to team up with Rhodes, The Tribal Chief was stunned when Brock Lesnar signaled his intent to do just that.
Moments before the bout took place later in the night, however, plans changed when Brock Lesnar launched a shocking attack on Cody Rhodes. Lesnar decimated The American Nightmare leading to their one-on-one match at Backlash. In that bout, Lesnar appeared to have the upper hand with Rhodes locked in the Kimura, however, Rhodes used his weight to roll Lesnar up and pick up the pinfall win.
On Raw in Hershey, PA, Brock Lesnar remained incensed at Rhodes, attacking him in the backstage area one week after challenging him to a fight at Night of Champions. Rhodes didn’t take things lying down however and went after Lesnar later in the night only to have his arm broken in the Kimura submission.
Despite the injury, Cody Rhodes still fought Lesnar in Saudi Arabia but in the end, he couldn’t overcome the broken arm and passed out locked in the Kimura once again.
On Raw in Albany, New York, Rhodes came to the ring with his arm in a brace and noted that he didn’t tap out to The Beast Incarnate while laying out an open challenge to meet Lesnar again any time, any place. Brock Lesnar was not at the show to answer Rhodes’ challenge but it seems that the feud between the two men is far from over.
