Cody Rhodes Invokes Shared Bullet Club Past with AJ Styles Ahead of WWE Backlash Clas

One Big Thing

Ahead of their WWE Backlash match, Cody Rhodes attempted to engage AJ Styles in the iconic “Too Sweet” Bullet Club salute during the Backlash Kickoff Show in France. Styles, a former leader of the faction, rejected the gesture, while Michael Cole reciprocated, much to the delight of the fans.

Key Takeaways

  • Both Rhodes and Styles are former members of the Bullet Club
  • Styles earned the opportunity to challenge for the Undisputed WWE Championship by defeating Kevin Owens and Rey Mysterio in a triple threat match, followed by a victory over LA Knight
  • This will be the first one-on-one encounter between Rhodes and Styles in their careers

Why It Matters

The clash between Cody Rhodes and AJ Styles at WWE Backlash is a highly anticipated match, pitting two former Bullet Club members against each other. This encounter marks Rhodes’ first title defense since winning the Undisputed WWE Championship from Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, ending Reigns’ historic 1,316-day reign.

Looking Ahead

With AJ Styles being retained on SmackDown in the recent WWE Draft, his future on the blue brand is secure regardless of the outcome at Backlash. Rhodes and Styles are set to have one final face-to-face confrontation on the upcoming episode of “SmackDown” before their championship match.
