CODY RHODES VS BROCK LESNAR AT WWE BACKLASH
The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes will battle Brock Lesnar at WWE’s upcoming pay-per-view- Backlash on Saturday, May 6th. Despite winning the WWE’s 2023 Royal Rumble this past January, Rhodes’ winning streak didn’t continue at WrestleMania when he lost to Roman Reigns. Then, the following night on Monday Night RAW, he was suddenly ambushed by Brock Lesnar just before the two were about to fight Reigns and Solo Sikoa in tag team action. Lesnar then assaulted Rhodes with steel chairs and the ring steps. Since then, Rhodes has been on a quest to challenge Lesnar to a match at WWE Backlash, and on the April 17 edition of Raw, Lesnar accepted Rhodes’ challenge.
Can Rhodes bounce back from his WrestleMania loss with a victory over The Beast, or will Lesnar obliterate The American Nightmare? Find out at WWE Backlash, streaming LIVE from Puerto Rico on Saturday, May 6, at 8 ET/5 PT on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network internationally.
