Cody Rhodes is one of the biggest Superstars in WWE right now and it was been building up since his return at WrestleMania 38 last year. Rhodes is clearly incredibly over and that was apparent for a long time now. Now it appears he was criticized for his Shakespearean promos on WWE television.

There is simply no denying the fact that Cody Rhodes is one of the most over babyfaces in WWE right now. Rhodes always looks dapper and cuts sophisticated promos while reminding fans he is the grandson of a plumber.

The American Nightmare has a charm about him whenever he cuts a promo on WWE television. That’s exactly why fans are drawn to his babyface promos.

While speaking on Legion of RAW, former WWE writer Vince Russo talked about Cody Rhodes’ promo on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. He criticized The American Nightmare for his Shakespearean promos.


It’s everything about Cody’s demeanor. Bro, this isn’t Broadway, this is pro wrestling, and he goes out there with this monologues, he’s Shakespearean, and he’s on a Broadway stage, and it’s like, this is freaking wrestling. Like, talk real. Wrestling needs to be real! Okay, bro? I can’t believe for the life of me a professional wrestler talks this prim and proper way, using big words; what do you want to talk about? I don’t get the whole Cody thing; I don’t. I’ve never gotten the babyface thing. I don’t get it, bro.

Brock Lesnar accepted Cody Rhodes’ challenge for a match at WWE SummerSlam on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. We will have to wait and see how the match will turn out.
