WWE Hall Of Famer On How Cody Rhodes Has Done Since WrestleMania
A WWE Hall of Famer has given his opinion on how Cody Rhodes has fared since his devastating loss at WrestleMania 39.
Going into WrestleMania 39 last month, many people believed that the 2023 Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes was going to be the guy to beat Roman Reigns to end the nearly 1,000-day championship reign of the Tribal Chief.
At WrestleMania 39, Cody Rhodes looked like he was going to beat Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship and “finish the story” until Solo Sikoa got involved with a Samoan Spike leading to a Spear from Reigns for the win.
Since then, Cody has been dealing with Brock Lesnar, who viciously attacked Cody on the Raw After WrestleMania leading to a match at Backlash two weeks ago. Cody found a way to win that match by countering a submission move into a pin. However, Brock wasn’t too happy about that and he attacked Cody again.
The stage is now set for Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar II this Saturday, May 27th at Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia.
Bully Ray is a WWE Hall of Famer (as Bubba Ray Dudley) that co-hosts Busted Open Radio on Sirius XM. On a recent show, Bully Ray commented about how the crowd reactions for Cody Rhodes are getting stronger.
“I only tweeted about ‘Raw’ once last night [May 15], and I tweeted specifically after Cody’s segment. I said, ‘Slow and steady wins the race. Cody’s getting it done right now. Just listen.’ … Cody’s reactions.”
“Reactions when his music plays, reactions when they sing that part of his song, reactions when he’s standing in the ring, people chanting his name during his promo. Any reaction and all reactions, louder now or pre-Mania? This is the slow progression of Cody Rhodes.”
