Cody Rhodes is undoubtedly one of the most over babyfaces in the company right now, whose stock has been on a gradual rise since his WWE return last year at WrestleMania 38. His current feud sees him facing off against Brock Lesnar and it appears we now have another angle of Rhodes kicking away Lesnar’s hat on RAW this week.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Brock Lesnar decided to cause chaos during Night Two of the Draft. He wanted a piece of Cody Rhodes and ultimately, that’s exactly what Lesnar got.
Adam Pearce sent security guards to surround Brock Lesnar but to no avail. Afterwards, Cody Rhodes’ music hit and The Beast Incarnate was ready to face The American Nightmare in the ring.
Cody Rhodes outsmarted Brock Lesnar as he came from the back and blindsided him, busting his nose in the process. As revealed by fan footage, a different angle of Rhodes’ attack shows that he punted Lesnar’s cowboy hat before all hell broke loose.
