The Brock Lesnar – Cody Rhodes feud began on RAW after WrestleMania 39.
Lesnar & Rhodes were scheduled to team up to face The Bloodline (Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa), when Lesnar turned heel and brutally assaulted The American Nightmare.
They had their first match against each other at Backlash in Puerto Rico, where Cody managed to pin Brock in the main event. Brock bled heavily during this match after going head-first into a turnbuckle that was exposed.
They had the rematch at Night Of Champions in Saudi Arabia. In the lead up to this match, The Beast broke Cody’s arm on RAW and even made him lose in the World Heavyweight Championship tournament.
Brock then defeated Cody in the rematch, after an injured Cody passed out to the Kimura Lock.
The Wrestling Observer reported that the rubber match between Lesnar and Rhodes will take place at SummerSlam 2023 and it will have a stipulation that we have not seen in a while:
“I have been told that it is gonna be something. It’s not just gonna be a straight match. They’ve got some sort of stipulation that allegedly we have not seen in a while and that means not Hell in a Cell.”
In an update, The Observer is now reporting that Lesnar vs. Rhodes III could be a Bullrope Match:
“Lesnar vs. Rhodes III will be one of the SummerSlam main events. There has been a lot of talk about adding a stipulation and one of the ideas is a Bullrope Match. That is not official, and there are multiple other ideas for that match on the table, and no final decision has been made.”
A Bullrope Match was last held in WWE at Great American Bash 2007, where Randy Orton defeated Dusty Rhodes.
To win this match, a wrestler must touch all 4 turnbuckles in a row while being tied to his opponent with a bullrope.
