The wrestling journeys of Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins have intertwined in recent years, leaving a notable mark on both their careers. Rhodes’ much-anticipated return in 2022 brought forth a series of captivating battles with the iconic Rollins, creating a trilogy of memorable encounters.
In a surprising turn, Rhodes has now adopted the moniker previously associated with the charismatic Rollins. During a recent episode of RAW, he was dubbed “The Beast Slayer,” a title he earned by defeating Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam 2023.
Interestingly, Seth Rollins was also bestowed the moniker “The Beast Slayer” back in 2019, following his victory over Lesnar.
However, what sets Rhodes apart is the endorsement he received from Lesnar himself after their encounter. This distinction highlights the recognition of their showdown’s significance.

The Rhodes-Lesnar clash, a solid match, is presumably building towards WrestleMania 40 in April 2024, where Rhodes is anticipated to engage in a rematch against Roman Reigns.
Before this awaited rematch, Rhodes faces other challengers on the horizon. The recent RAW broadcast promoted his upcoming bout against Finn Balor from The Judgment Day faction.
Notably, Finn Balor had previously vanquished Brock Lesnar, adding an intriguing layer to Rhodes’ impending match against him.
In a recent main event, Rhodes joined forces with Seth Rollins and Shinsuke Nakamura. However, an unexpected turn of events occurred when Nakamura betrayed Rollins, setting the stage for their feud over the world heavyweight title.
As their paths continue to intersect, the wrestling world remains captivated by the dynamic between Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins.
