Kevin Sullivan Expects Cody Rhodes to Retain at WWE Backlash 202

One Big Thing

Former WCW booker Kevin Sullivan believes Cody Rhodes will retain his Undisputed WWE Championship against AJ Styles at WWE Backlash.

Key Points

  • Rhodes will defend his newly-won title against Styles in his first defense.
  • This will be the first-ever singles match between Rhodes and Styles.
  • Sullivan expects Rhodes to be “very giving” to Styles out of respect.
  • Rhodes won the title from Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40.
  • Styles earned the title shot by winning a six-man eliminator tournament.

Why It Matters

The outcome of this match will set the tone for Rhodes’ title reign and determine the direction of the WWE’s main event scene. A win for Rhodes would solidify his position as the face of the company, while a victory for Styles could shake up the status quo.

Road to Backlash

  • Rhodes defeated Reigns at WrestleMania 40 to win the title.
  • Styles won a six-man eliminator tournament to earn the title shot.
  • Rhodes successfully defended against Carmelo Hayes on “SmackDown.”

“Cody’s first [televised post-WrestleMania] match [against Carmelo Hayes], he was very giving, and he’s probably going to do that to AJ because he respects him, but they respect each other.” – Kevin Sullivan
