Cody Rhodes has been the victim of a shockingly vicious betrayal at the hands of Brock Lesnar.
During Triple H’s address to the crowd at the beginning of Raw, Roman Reigns was presented to the audience. Cody Rhodes, though, came out of nowhere and joined Reigns, Paul Heyman, and Solo Sikoa in a hurry. The American Nightmare requested a rematch with Reigns but had to settle for a bout against Reigns and his tag team partner instead. The only stipulation was that whoever joined him in his tag team couldn’t compete for the World Title as long as Reigns was the reigning champion, and they were required to have taken part in the WrestleMania event.
Brock Lesnar emerged as a result of this, despite the fact that he is ineligible to compete for the title again because he was defeated by Reigns at SummerSlam.
When we return to the main event, we find that Brock Lesnar has attacked Cody Rhodes before the bout has even begun. Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa, both of whom had been stunned, exited the ring at this point, allowing the vicious onslaught to continue.
The Beast took Rhodes down with suplexes, F-5s, crushed him with a steel chair, sent him crashing through the announce table with another F-5, and then sent him up onto the ring steps.
The deconstruction of the ring continued even as officials rushed the area, and Brock Lesnar didn’t leave until he decided the job was done.
Lesnar ended the night by delivering a double one-finger salute to Adam Pearce, Cody Rhodes, and the complete and total carnage that was in the ring before the show went off the air.
Will Brock Lesnar Call It Quits?
In the days preceding up to WrestleMania, there was a lot of talk about how Brock Lesnar might be about to call it quits on his professional wrestling career. The Beast is supposed to have made statements following a recent taping of Monday Night Raw in which he said he would be “finishing up.” These words are believed to be the source of the rumours.
In a recent interview, Brock Lesnar stated that he “doesn’t know” how much longer he will continue to work for WWE. Lesnar made this admission.
At WrestleMania 39, Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns competed for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title. This match served as the show’s main event.
In the days leading up to the championship fight, Rhodes made it clear that he intended to win the title as a tribute to his great boxing father, Dusty Rhodes.
It shouldn’t have come as a surprise to see Rhodes’ wife, daughter, sister, and mother sitting in the front row given the story’s emphasis on the significance of family relationships. They were joined by a very special visitor, none other than Brodie Lee Jr., who is the son of the late, great Brodie Lee.
During his entry, Rhodes greeted his family and gave a facsimile of his American Nightmare tattoo, which was on Lee Jr.’s neck, his commemorative weight belt.
Amanda Huber, Lee Jr.’s mother, responded to the touching moment between her son and his girlfriend by posting her thoughts on social media.
Following more than thirty minutes of heated combat and many interferences, Reigns ultimately prevailed and dealt Rhodes a devastating loss. As the wrestling community attempted to come to terms with the controversial decision, a number of AEW stars, including Huber, voiced their opinions on the unexpected outcome.
Rhodes suffered his first loss in WWE since making his comeback the previous year, and it was a heartbreaker. After a hiatus of six years, Rhodes surprised everyone by making a stunning return to WWE. During that period, he worked with Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling in addition to launching AEW.
Following his return, he amassed a total of forty-six victories en route to headlining WrestleMania; nevertheless, he will need to begin his pursuit of the WWE Title all over again.
The World Wrestling Entertainment, its Chief Executive Officer Nick Khan, and its Executive Chairman Vince McMahon have had a memorable four days, and now the company has agreed to a shocking deal with the parent company of the UFC, Endeavor.
The transaction, which was announced on April 3rd, will result in the formation of a new business that will be listed on public stock exchanges. The value of the deal is an astounding twenty-one billion dollars.
It was disclosed in the SEC document that WWE submitted on the transaction that Triple H, Nick Khan, and Frank A. Riddick III are in line to receive significant cash windfalls once the merger between the two companies is finalised.
“as soon as feasible following the closing date of a Qualified Selling Transaction,” Nick Khan will earn a bonus worth $15 million, Triple H will receive $5 million, and Frank A. Riddick III will also receive $5 million.
