Cody Rhodes came back to WWE at WrestleMania 38 last year and wasted no time in making an impact after defeating Seth Rollins in his return match. Rhodes is one of the biggest names in Vince McMahon’s company right now. That said, it appears Cody Rhodes is worried his fan reaction could stop at any minute.
The American Nightmare immediately began feuding with Brock Lesnar after WrestleMania 39. They both have one win over each order and will now battle it out in their trilogy match at SummerSlam.
Ever since he returned to WWE, Cody Rhodes has been given a lot if focus, as he is clearly very over with fans. His fan support is undeniable and doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon.
While speaking Uproxx ahead of WWE SummerSlam, Cody Rhodes talked about the investment fans have in him finishing the story. Rhodes made it clear that he is worried his fan reaction could stop at any minute.
“If I knew (how to keep fans this invested), I would bottle it up, put a label on it and sell it. It’s almost a game of other people thinking, ‘Oh, there’s no way it’s going to get any hotter. There’s no way the moment’s going to stay right how it is now.’ And we’ve just been blessed that it’s gotten bigger.
I dropped the ball in front of them at WrestleMania, but something about it they liked, or something about it spoke to them, or stoked a fire, and it’s almost scary, it’s fragile. As much as I want to appear strong, and be confident and all that stuff, I can’t take it for granted. Any minute now, it could go away. I want to keep it going as long as possible in a way that the transaction with fans is purely genuine. And I’m lucky that that’s been the case.”
Cody Rhodes has clearly not forgotten his feud with Roman Reigns, but he has to deal with The Beast Incarnate at the WWE SummerSlam Premium Live Event next month. It remains to be seen how the match will turn out.
