When Cody Rhodes returned to WWE at Wrestlemania 38 in 2022, it was the worst-kept secret in professional wrestling. Since then, though, he’s been positioned as one of WWE’s biggest stars–torn pec notwithstanding–and it’s a remarkable run given that he’s one of the very few wrestlers who left WWE to make a name for themselves, eventually returning.

After returning from injury at the 2023 Royal Rumble, which he won, and fighting Roman Reigns for the WWE Undisputed Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania 39, Cody now faces his next major challenge: Brock Lesnar. Rhodes and Lesnar will go toe-to-toe at WWE Backlash on Saturday, May 6, live on Peacock.

Before then, Rhodes, also known as the “American Nightmare,” spoke to GameSpot about preparing for Brock, his story with Roman Reigns not being finished yet, and his return to WWE video games. The “American Nightmare” is not only represented in 2K’s latest title, WWE 2K23, but his character is alive and well in the WWE Supercard mobile game, as well. And if you’re wondering whether or not he had any input on how his character looks in the video games, we’ll let Rhodes explain how “petty” he can be about his own character design.
