A WWE Hall of Famer has given their verdict on Cody Rhodes.

Cody Rhodes is currently WWE’s top guy and arguably the biggest babyface the company has seen in several years. Fans around the world love the American Nightmare, but one veteran thinks a well-timed heel turn could add an interesting twist.

While Rhodes has never been shy about tipping his hat to his famous father, Mark Henry believes the Undisputed WWE Champion actually reminds him more of Dusty’s famous rival Ric Flair.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Henry said Rhodes’ cadence is more reminiscent of Flair than the American Dream.

“Cody presents himself like a babyface, He hands out the belts. He kisses the babies. He hugs the girls on the way out. High fives all the guys on both sides of the ring. But you listen to his cadence, he reminds me of Ric Flair more than he does Dusty.”

Henry then pondered what a Cody Rhodes heel turn might look like.

“He’s doing the puppet thing right now with everybody. ‘Look at me, I’m a nice guy.’ And then he’s gonna do just like I did ‘You all a bunch of puppets, you did what I told you to do!’ And now, you gonna get to see the real Cody Rhodes.”

After getting the better of AJ Styles at Backlash, Cody Rhodes is now preparing to face Logan Paul in Saudi Arabia.

On the May 10th episode of SmackDown, Nick Aldis announced Paul as Rhodes’ next challenger. Interestingly, a tweet from the World Champion later appeared to hint that both his title and Paul’s United States Championship would be on the line, commenting the match is for “all the gold.”
