Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes Bombshell Leaks

There have been several speculations regarding the return of Cody Rhodes. He has been rumored to make a return to WWE in leading up to WrestleMania.It was also speculated that he would return at WWE’s recent live event at the iconic Madison Square Garden and might face either WWE Champion Brock Lesnar or WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. It turns out WWE never had plans for that.



WWE is saving Cody Rhodes’ return

Fans expected Cody Rhodes to return for the MSG show earlier this month. It was expected that ‘The American Nightmare’ would face one of the top champions in the company. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer noted that there were no plans to have Rhodes return at the MSG show. Despite WWE advertising Lesnar’s opponent to be a world championship level performer, the company did not intend on having the former Intercontinental Champion fill that spot. Thus, it did not materialize:

” While many had speculated and were even mad that Rhodes didn’t debut on 3/5 in Madison Square Garden as one of the two mystery men that were to face ‘The Beast’ Brock Lesnar and ‘The Head of the Table’ Roman Reigns, that was never under consideration. Sacrificing him on his first night in this situation where the WrestleMania headliners were going to be booked strong made absolutely no sense for anyone. WWE had never hinted Rhodes to be one of the guys and only stated that Lesnar’s opponent would be a world champion level performer who was befitting a Madison Square Garden world title match,” said Meltzer.

It is understood that Rhodes might return at the WWE WrestleMania 38 premium live event to face Seth ‘Freaking’ Rollins, who doesn’t have an opponent for the event. The marquee show will take place on Saturday, April 2, and Sunday, April 3 from AT& T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
