The updates on Rhodes’s injury still have yet to come to the light; however, it’s safe to assume the drama between Rollins and Rhodes has concluded. This rivalry began all the way back on April 2, WrestleMania 38. Rhodes made a very long-anticipated WWE return and beat Rollins in an exhibition match. Rhodes was more skilled, fought with more grit and intelligence, and defeated Rollins. They met again at WrestleMania Backlash; however, Rollins’s efforts weren’t enough and he lost yet again to Rhodes.
His narrative has changed throughout the WWE. Initially, he was a villain and a teammate of Randy Orton. Later, he made his WWE return after a long hiatus. It seems the WWE is attempting to push Rhodes as someone who can possibly grasp and capture a title spot later down the line. Many believe it’s possible but only truly time will reveal what unfolds for Cody Rhode’s future in the WWE.
Rhodes’ Speech after the Match
The talk of the match came from the heartfelt speech Rhodes left the fans with after the match was concluded. He spoke about battling an injury and persevering to deliver the best product for the fans. Rhodes encouraged several of his fans to never give up on their dreams and took a moment to reflect on his career. After the match, many fans took a liking to his speech and have been showing support in ways Rhodes hasn’t been accustomed to throughout his career.
