The anticipation builds as "The American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes, made a star appearance on "The Michael Kay Show," hosted by the illustrious trio - Michael Kay, renowned for his long-standing role as the New York Yankees announcer, WWE personality Peter Rosenberg, and Don La Greca, the voice behind the New York Rangers.

In a significant revelation on the show, it was disclosed that Rhodes will confront Nakamura in a gripping Bullrope match at WWE's live event, scheduled to be held in the iconic Madison Square Garden on December 26. While Wrestling Inc.

has sought confirmation from WWE, the organization has not yet responded. This match carries a profound legacy, especially for Cody Rhodes. His father, the legendary Dusty Rhodes, was synonymous with the Texas Bullrope match, having bravely faced this challenge over 100 times.

Dusty's final Texas Bullrope bout was a memorable encounter against Randy Orton at WWE's 2007 Great American Bash, a mentor to Cody.
