Cody Rhodes received a harsh reality check when his long-standing adversary, The Rock, ceased his verbal jabs and unleashed a brutal assault on him during last week’s Monday Night RAW. The relentless attack left Rhodes battered and bloodied, and Rhodes has now made a bold pledge following the attack during a WWE live event.

Cody Rhodes is set for double duty at WrestleMania 40, featuring in both nights of the grand event. He’ll team up with Seth Rollins to take on The Rock and Roman Reigns in a tag match on Night 1, then challenge Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship on Night 2.

Despite being brutally attacked by The Rock on RAW, leaving him bloodied, Rhodes displayed resilience by making appearances at this week’s Road to WrestleMania live events in Manchester and Syracuse. He triumphed over Drew McIntyre in Street Fight matches at both shows. Addressing the crowd after his victory in Syracuse, Rhodes vowed to return as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion next time.

”This is the last show on the road to WrestleMania. This is the last night that I will zip up my boots before I walk into WrestleMania against The Rock and Roman Reigns. I have been to Syracuse many times, with WWE, on the indies, I came to Syracuse in a different phase. Next time, when I come back to Syracuse, I will be the Undisputed WWE Champion.”


The unexpected aggression displayed by The Rock towards Cody Rhodes has left fans in utter disbelief, as the raw intensity of their altercation continues to reverberate. With their rivalry escalating, anticipation for their eventual showdown at WrestleMania 40 reaches unprecedented levels.
