Bully Ray: Cody Rhodes’ WWE Challengers Resemble Certain Rocky Balboa Opponent

One Big Thing

WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray has compared the challengers Cody Rhodes has faced since winning the Undisputed WWE Championship to the opponents Rocky Balboa fought after defeating Apollo Creed.

Key Points

  • Since defeating Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, Cody Rhodes has battled AJ Styles at Backlash and will face Logan Paul at King and Queen of the Ring.
  • Bully Ray believes that finding a challenger to truly challenge Rhodes, like The Rock or Roman Reigns did, is difficult.
  • While AJ Styles and Logan Paul are major superstars, Bully Ray doesn’t believe they have a chance of defeating Cody Rhodes.

Why It Matters

The comparison to Rocky Balboa’s opponents after defeating Apollo Creed highlights the challenge WWE faces in finding credible challengers for Cody Rhodes. As the Undisputed WWE Champion, Rhodes needs opponents who can emotionally invest the audience and make them believe there’s a real chance of a title change.

What’s Next?

It remains unclear if the United States Championship will also be on the line when Cody Rhodes defends the Undisputed WWE Championship against Logan Paul at King and Queen of the Ring.
