Cody Rhodes breaks his silence over The Rock taking over his WrestleMania spot

The WWE Universe and global wrestling fans have hijacked social media and made Cody Rhodes one of the biggest trends in the past few days. The hashtag #WeWantCody was trending throughout the weekend, and Rhodes has taken notice of it. While Monday Night RAW was on the air, Cody Rhodes took to X (Formerly Twitter) and shared his reaction towards the overwhelming love of the fans throughout the weekend. The American Nightmare also left a two-word sentence that could leave the fandom thinking about what is going to happen. 


'Appreciate the passion, God bless y’all… but Trust me,' Cody Rhodes tweeted.

In the main event of Monday Night RAW, The American Nightmare went against Shinsuke Nakamura in a Bull Rope match, something which his father Dusty Rhodes made prominent back in the day. Interestingly, the WWE made use of the same Bull Rope which Cody's father used in the first-ever match of this kind against Superstar Billy Graham in 1974.
