WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray has weighed in on the array of challengers Cody Rhodes has faced following his monumental victory over Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, where he claimed the Undisputed WWE Championship. Since his triumph over the "Tribal Chief," Rhodes has found himself in the ring with formidable opponents, including a showdown with AJ Styles at Backlash and an upcoming clash with current United States Champion Logan Paul at King and Queen of the Ring.

Speaking on "Busted Open Radio," Bully Ray drew parallels between Rhodes' challengers and the foes faced by Rocky Balboa post his victory over Apollo Creed. According to Bully, finding adversaries who could match the intensity and caliber of Rhodes akin to The Rock or Roman Reigns has proven to be a challenging task.

While acknowledging the star power of contenders like AJ Styles and Logan Paul, Bully expressed skepticism regarding their chances against "The American Nightmare." He likened their roles to the opponents Rocky Balboa encountered after his victory over Apollo Creed, emphasizing that while they are not "nobodies," they are essentially being fed to Rhodes without posing a significant threat to his reign.

Title Unification Speculation

Despite the anticipation surrounding Rhodes' matchups, speculation looms regarding the potential inclusion of the United States Championship in the main event of King and Queen of the Ring alongside the Undisputed WWE Championship.

Dave Meltzer of "Wrestling Observer Radio" provided insights earlier this week on the likelihood of both titles being contested simultaneously. As Rhodes continues to navigate the competitive landscape of WWE, fans remain intrigued by the evolution of his championship reign and the caliber of challengers he will encounter on his journey.

With each match, the wrestling world eagerly awaits to see if anyone can truly test the mettle of "The American Nightmare."
