“The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes and “The Beast” Brock Lesnar has had one hell of a rivalry since the WWE Monday Night RAW episode following last April’s WrestleMania 39, when Brock brutally attacked Cody and left him laying. The American Nightmare would come out as the winner of their first matchup, which took place at WWE Backlash from Puerto Rico, while The Beast would come out victorious in their second encounter, which was held at Night Of Champions from Saudi Arabia.
Rhodes and Lesnar faced each other for a third and final time at last Saturday’s WWE SummerSlam Event from Detroit, which saw The American Nightmare pick up a massive win over The Beast. Rhodes would win after reversing Brock’s F5 and hitting Brock with multiple Cross Rhodes. After the match, Brock would shake Cody’s hands, hug The American Nightmare and raise his arm.
Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that “The Beast” Brock Lesnar was originally advertised to compete at WWE Fastlane on October 7, but it turns out Brock will no longer be on the show as he will be gone from the company for a while. Meltzer also noted that for the next four months or so “The Beast” Brock Lesnar will not be appearing on any weekly TV program or Premium Live Event, but he will be back in time for WrestleMania.
