Cody Rhodes has added an intriguing element to his upcoming face-to-face encounter with CM Punk on WWE Raw, ahead of the Royal Rumble this Saturday.

In recent Instagram post, Cody shared a video of himself signing weight belts in New Orleans, a customary part of his preparations for WWE events. However, what made this video particularly interesting was the choice of background music.

Cody used the song “This Fire Burns” by Killswitch Engage as the soundtrack for the video. This song holds significance in WWE history as it was originally CM Punk’s theme song before he switched to “Cult of Personality” in 2011.

The use of “This Fire Burns” by Cody Rhodes adds an element of nostalgia and reference to CM Punk’s past in WWE, potentially adding fuel to their upcoming confrontation on Raw.


In related news, Cody was recently revealed as the cover star for WWE 2K24, with Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley featured on the cover of the game’s deluxe edition.
