In the aftermath of Cody Rhodes' intense face-off with Brock Lesnar in WWE, the wrestling aficionado community has been left wondering about the American Nightmare's next steps. Recent events have provided a hint, showcasing a potential new adversary for Rhodes, one with significant stature.
At a star-studded Supershow on Saturday in Palm Springs, California, Rhodes squared off with Dominik Mysterio in a fierce Street Fight. But the bout took a tumultuous turn when Omos, the 400-pound Nigerian behemoth, and MVP, the former US Champion, intervened.
MVP forcibly extricated Rhodes from the ring, only for Omos to catapult him back into the fray with a powerful Gorilla Press Slam.
Rhodes' Stunning Comeback
However, displaying resilience and sheer determination, Rhodes miraculously managed to evade a pin from Mysterio post-assault.
He then retaliated with gusto, hurling Dirty Dom through a table and sealing the deal with his signature Cross Rhodes to clinch the non-title bout. Fans eager to witness the intervention can view the electrifying clip from Omos and MVP below.
On another note, ever since Cody Rhodes made his dramatic return to WWE at WrestleMania 38, the buzz has centered around his aim to culminate his wrestling narrative.
Notably, Rhodes' attempt to secure victory at this year's Showcase of the Immortals was thwarted by Roman Reigns, who had Solo Sikoa at his side. With the buzz of The Rock's return overshadowing Rhodes' trajectory and potentially leading to a colossal showdown with his cousin Reigns, the future remains uncertain.
Adding to the discourse, wrestling connoisseur Kevin Sullivan provided an intriguing perspective on the prospect of Rhodes not bagging the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. He reflected on the legacy of Rhodes' father, who never clinched the WWF belt, and drew parallels.
Sullivan expressed his reservations about Cody overpowering Reigns and indicated the value of the narrative where Cody isn't portrayed as a "corporate champion." Sullivan's contemplation on the direction WWE might take with Rhodes, especially in the light of WrestleMania 40 and the potential of The Rock entering the ring, has certainly intensified the anticipation.
