Wrestling luminary Konnan has cast a shadow of doubt over Cody Rhodes' current standing as WWE's leading hero, suggesting that the adoration from the WWE fanbase may not last. As the pinnacle babyface of WWE, Rhodes has successfully united the roster's elite in opposition to the formidable Bloodline faction, setting his sights on usurping Roman Reigns for the coveted Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at the landmark WrestleMania XL event.

In a recent dialogue on the "Keepin' It 100" podcast, Konnan expressed concern over the fleeting nature of fan support, cautioning that the current wave of enthusiasm for "The American Nightmare" could potentially reverse.

He pointed to a particularly poignant moment on a recent RAW episode where The Rock discreetly imparted words to Rhodes, a gesture Konnan views as a significant, yet mysterious, element of their storyline. "That image of everyone pointing to the WrestleMania sign alongside Cody was powerful.

Yet, I can envision those same fans turning their backs on him in a year or two," Konnan speculated, emphasizing the unpredictable loyalty of wrestling fans.

The Rock's Brutal Assault

Adding to the drama, this past week on RAW witnessed an unexpected turn when The Rock executed a brutal attack on Rhodes.

In a spectacle that left viewers in shock, The Rock unleashed a ferocious beating on Rhodes, utilizing foreign objects and brutally slamming his head against a trailer. The assault culminated with Rhodes left bleeding profusely, as The Rock ominously addressed Rhodes' mother, declaring that his prophecy was being fulfilled and vowing to deliver the blood-stained championship belt to her at WrestleMania.

In the aftermath of this shocking development, all eyes are on Cody Rhodes, with fans eagerly anticipating his response. Having triumphed in the 2024 Men's Royal Rumble, Rhodes' next move on WWE's flagship show is highly anticipated, as he seeks retribution and aims to solidify his legacy at the upcoming WrestleMania XL.

This escalating feud not only captivates the WWE Universe but also sets the stage for a showdown that could redefine Rhodes' career and the landscape of WWE itself.
