The Rock Vs Cody Rhodes: A Clash That Rocks The WWE Universe

2 months ago By Jhon Woug

With a disastrous moment, the WWE world became unstable and unexpected when The Rock, one of the most loved wrestlers of all time, officially came back to the ring. It didn’t turn out to be like any normal comeback I had witnessed in the past. Our main contender, The Rock, shouts out “The Final Boss” and immediately declares Cody Rhodes, the undisputed WWE Champion, as his main target.

The news will extend through the WWE team and fans at large. And even worse, because this was not a matter of simply changing the balance of the team, as before, but this was entirely personal. There was a declaration of war by The Rock when he saw Cody Face Rhodes, and just like that, a fierce rivalry was born that we would follow for the coming months.

With one tweet from The Rock about social media in which he unapologetically announced that he would continue to consent, he surely put the other men on notice. Heating up the stage, the black-hooded warrior beckoned Cody Rhodes to face him, so the wise one and other WWE stars could witness his art. The message was clear: “I will tear you apart.” It was a unilateral military declaration against the WWE that has not been seen in a long time.

However, what actually pushed the relationship between the two countries to its limit? For The Rock, it was not only the dream to become the undisputed master of the ring again but to prove to everyone that their opinions were wrong in calling him washed up while he was still young and in his prime. It was personal. In this case, family is supreme and rules are laid down, and The Rock declared that any person who would dare disrespect Roman Reigns’ family would pay (and pay dearly).

With “Rock” being the Final Boss, the marketing move was strongly expected, and of course, speculation started to rise. When would he be at his prime to conquer WWE programming? He would not go there without knowing what he would deliver. He would go there without knowing how he would deliver chaos. Abramovich would be the new era for his former club, causing Cody Rhodes and the other roster members to envy his rally.

While WWE’s Triple H (Hunter Hearst Helmsley) voiced his anticipation for things to follow, Rock’s renewed commitment to his role as King of the Ring was understood. With his unprecedented stardom and devotion to the script, Triple H was predicting that the fans would wear a wild adventure’s face.

But Cody Rhodes stood undeterred by this event, despite the fact that The Rock’s comeback was already in motion. The actor said in an interview that he is willing to fight The Rock, which he totally enjoyed, as he wants to prove that he can beat one of the all-time greats. Getting to the top meant more than winning to Rhodes; it was also about claiming his place in the WWE Legends Hall of Fame.

As the anticipation reached a fever pitch, fans were left wondering: after all, the listeners would want to know whether The Rock would make Cody Rhodes gush blood. But would Rhodes beat the former wrestling legend and come out of the upset victory or not?

“The Rock” and “Cody Rhodes” are the names of the wrestlers in the story. Each day, the conflict between them grows stronger and stronger. With shared passion and eagerness in the online environment, the entire world had started seeking the next step of the story.

Everyone had settled in, breathed, and thought like it was over. Then The Rock dropped another jarring piece of news against all of us. He dropped a subtle clue that he was soon going to reappear in the WWE ring, and he neglected to state that his feud with Cody Rhodes was at an end.

It was the day when The Rock screamed his seal of war across the loudspeakers of WWE, and curiosity could not resist what made him as angry as that. Some argued that it was just about those who had big egos and preferred their way of being champions over other people’s. Still others saw it as something deeper, placing it in loftier narratives of settling personal scores and long-standing feuds. It was a narration of the war.

And maybe this particular element of the movie was all the more exciting about The Rock’s return, as he was no longer a charming yet lovable hero but had turned into “The Final Boss,”  who could be described as a dark presence with a certain amount of evil and didn’t have difficulty overcoming anybody who happened to stand in his way. However, this transformation has been rather scary since, in the past, he was a true embodiment of sportsmanship and fair play.

And then no story would be complete without talking about the undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes, who was going through hell (but didn’t know that part) because of The Rock. As the heir to a wrestling dynasty, Rhodes was already genetically programmed to relish such dramatic moments in his life. Nothing had been ready for him more than the anger that Alberto del Rio displayed, who seemed to have been determined to unattend everything that Rhodes valued.

The flames kept on rising with each passing minute, and The Rock further added fire to it with the shots he dropped on WWE fans. In his ominous words, he expresses the point that talking about Roman Reigns’ family is also addressing our family. It was very strong evidence that the pre-combat between professional wrestling athletes doesn’t only occur in the ring but also on the personal levels of those involved in the combat.

The Rock always averred that this was not just a fight for the throne; for him, it was the issue of loyalty and the decorated legacy. Unlike the other ladies, he would dare any man who tried to disrespect his name. This was something that he considered very serious, and hence he would not take lightly his name being on the line. At that point, it didn’t matter that they had to beat bare-knuckled Cody Rhodes and the entire WWE roster to make a go of it.

Then, as The Rock’s vengeance sprinted like a flame unchallenged, there was an uproar of different questions about what the cost paid for his inner well-being was. The question was: would Miguel really be able to accept his darker side and accept the role that he has always been on the opposite of? As his desire for revenge dominated him, would he come to be left damagingly consumed by his being and get away with traces of his competitive spirit in the trail behind him?

As the WWE universe held its breath, one thing was certain: the massive fight in that case was only beginning between The Rock and Cody Rhodes. And after it went through the storm, the ring would never be the same again.

As the WWE universe braced itself for the inevitable showdown between these two titans, one thing was clear: having put aside every difference and settled for the same ring, they would lock horns; the fight would be an age-old one. Among these, most would have one unshared experience: seeing themselves on the world stage and being admired by the whole globe for their achievements.

At last, whether real or virtual, The Rock’s fundamental difficulty will be the same. The golden hardware, or acclaim, was not the main reason why WWE’s Rhodes became famous. It was a matchup of two greats. They fought with fiery rage, ego, and supremacy in their minds. There was no look of surprise, no expression of astonishment, and it was as if the WWE universe was holding its breath, and it knew then and there that it was witnessing history unravelling before its eyes.
