WWE fans saw two of the most popular sport franchises intertwining paths in not just a way that so many may have expected. Never clashing in the ring during his final appearances, a poignant tribute intertwined their legacies in the heart of fans.

The link between Bray Wyatt and Cody Rhodes can be traced back to their early days in the sprawling empire of World Wrestling Entertainment. Rhodes was an essential fixture on Wyatt's route as he was in NXT at the time, then coasting by the name Husky Harris.

Some one year in-between the tragic passing of Wyatt, Rhodes made his way to a SmackDown special show that was dedicated to the legendary late Terry Funk; hence, this was proof enough that he was an iconic figure in the wrestling world.

A live memory of Bray Wyatt at a live memory event in Augusta, GA, capturing the life of the late "Eater of Worlds" and everything he was in their unique way. For who can ever forget the iconic 2011 tweet when Cody hooked up with the Scottish Terminator in a street fight? And before you knew it, the public was turned into a sea of "fireflies," mimicking that very scene that Wyatt creates throughout his entrances and promos, for a touching homage to the "Eater of Worlds." It was respect fulfilled, not just to Wyatt but to the stands which they manage to create together.

Rhodes' Influential Victory

Rhodes won the skirmish, with McIntyre's attention having by then already swung over to a double main event match at WrestleMania 40. Such a win, and the one prior to it, paid homage to just how deep the influence of WWE fans has with respect to making or crafting the path of their most beloved wrestling.

Bray Wyatt is another wrestler who has been in an extensive run along with the famous John Cena in feuds throughout the years with The Wyatt Family by his side, but when all of this fan support finally came under fiction and he won the WWE Championship during the 2017 Elimination Chamber Match.

Meanwhile, the fan support had notably molded the storyline of Cody Rhodes, especially when uproar noted, regarding the story he had with Roman Reigns and the comeback of the Rock. Booming "We Want Cody" was overheard throughout the inhabited world, with Rhodes getting pitted with Reigns at the main event of WrestleMania 40, where expressions by fans power the very dynamism of wrestling.

As the drama plays out, the community of suspended disbelief that adheres to the WWE proves time and again capable of pulling it forward more by its heroes than by its stories.
