Cody Rhodes to Conclude Saga After Brock Lesnar Chapter

At the recent SummerSlam premium live event, "The American Nightmare," Cody Rhodes cemented his position in WWE folklore by defeating "The Beast" Brock Lesnar, drawing a curtain on their intense feud that ignited on the Raw following WrestleMania 39.

With the Lesnar chapter firmly in his rearview, Rhodes has begun to hint at what might be next on his journey. During the post-SummerSlam media scrum, Rhodes was introspective yet resolute, sharing his vision with the wrestling press.

"I believe everyone here has a fair inkling of my forthcoming plans," he began. "This entire journey for me has been about completing a narrative. Every time I've found myself on that mat, a singular thought resonates – 'get back.'

It's about retracing my steps to a particular moment, a pivotal scenario, and rewriting that outcome."

Rhodes' Subtle Universal Championship Nod

While Rhodes carefully refrained from dropping specific names or titles, the air was thick with insinuations.

For the avid wrestling enthusiast, the cryptic reference to "the situation" he yearned to "get back to" seemed to hint at Roman Reigns and the coveted Undisputed Universal Championship. Rhodes continued, "I won't outrightly pinpoint the exact situation, but let's be honest, it's not hard to connect the dots.

The path to that goal is Herculean, to put it mildly. And if you think taking on Brock thrice was tough, what lies ahead is an even steeper mountain to climb." The wrestling sensation ended his interaction on a note of unpredictability, a signature of his persona, "As much as I have my hopes and targets, in this business, and especially on Monday nights, you learn to expect the unexpected.

It's been an exhilarating ride, filled with twists and turns, and I guarantee the surprises are far from over." With such a riveting declaration from Rhodes, fans and enthusiasts are now on the edge, eager to see what the next chapter in his illustrious career will unveil.
