Cody Rhodes became a big deal after returning to WWE last year at WrestleMania 38. It was very apparent that Rhodes was destined for greatness as he headlined this year’s WrestleMania against Roman Reigns. However, he couldn’t beat Roman Reigns. He is now engaged in a feud with Brock Lesnar and it appears he made a huge dare to Lesnar after RAW this week.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Brock Lesnar interrupted Shawn Michaels and Adam Pearce to come out to the ring and call out Cody Rhodes. It didn’t end the way Lesnar had expected.
Adam Pearce sent security guards to surround Brock Lesnar, but it was nothing more than a joke to him. His complexion changed after Cody Rhodes’ music hit.
The American Nightmare attacked him from behind, and the two started to brawl. Before the two were separated, Cody Rhodes won the exchange as he busted open The Beast Incarnate.
Following the conclusion of the show, Cody Rhodes sent a message to Brock Lesnar, daring him to earn the cowboy moniker. Needless to say, the message made an impact.
Earn it #WWERaw “Cowboy”
Cody Rhodes is set to square off against Brock Lesnar at WWE Backlash on May 6th. We will have to wait and see whether The American Nightmare will be able to topple The Beast Incarnate this week at WWE Backlash.
