WWE Shakes Things Up Cody Rhodes Crowned “The Beast Slayer” in Nod to Rollins’ Legacy

10 months ago By Sports Desk

In a twist that has the WWE Universe buzzing, the landscape of the promotion has taken a drastic turn with Cody Rhodes being dubbed “The Beast Slayer” on the recent episode of RAW. This moniker, of course, was once famously attached to Seth Rollins after his iconic victory over Brock Lesnar back in 2019. But with Rhodes’ recent triumph over Lesnar at SummerSlam 2023, it seems WWE is set on giving the nickname a fresh face.

The Roads Crossed by Rhodes and Rollins

The intertwining tales of Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins in the WWE arena are the stuff of legend. Cody’s emphatic return to WWE in 2022 led to a monumental trilogy with Rollins, cementing both wrestlers’ status as stalwarts of the industry. Now, with the borrowed nickname, WWE seems to be hinting at an even more profound connection between the two.

While Rollins may have had the nickname first, there’s a key distinction in Cody’s acquisition of it. After their intense match at SummerSlam 2023, Brock Lesnar provided Rhodes with a ringing endorsement. This gesture from The Beast Incarnate is more than just a stamp of approval; it’s a signal of the industry’s faith in Rhodes as a front-runner. This match, replete with technical prowess and gripping storytelling, wasn’t just another contest – it was a stage set for Rhodes’ trajectory throughout the year and potentially paving his path to WrestleMania 40. Rumors are already swirling about a potential face-off with Roman Reigns, a rematch that fans across the globe are eagerly anticipating.

What Lies Ahead for “The Beast Slayer”?

With such a heavyweight title now resting on his shoulders, what’s next for Cody Rhodes? Last week saw him aligning with his once-rival, Seth Rollins, and Shinsuke Nakamura in a main event that shocked everyone. However, the alliance was short-lived as the electrifying Nakamura betrayed Rollins, igniting their feud for the World Heavyweight Title.

This week’s booking for Rhodes placed him opposite Finn Balor from The Judgment Day. With no clear storyline currently in place for Rhodes, one can only speculate about the twists and turns awaiting him in the near future. Will he clash with old foes? Or will we witness new alliances and feuds take shape?

A Nod to Legacy or A New Chapter?

While borrowing Rollins’ nickname has raised eyebrows, it could very well be a nod to the intertwined destinies of these two wrestling icons. However, it’s equally likely that this move by WWE is an attempt to redefine the “The Beast Slayer” moniker through Cody Rhodes.

Whether fans view it as homage or a fresh start, one thing is clear: Cody Rhodes’ journey as “The Beast Slayer” has just begun. As the saga unfolds, WWE aficionados worldwide will be glued to their screens, eager to witness every body slam, submission, and storyline twist that comes with it.
