Teil Runnels, a fervent supporter of her brother Cody Rhodes, is eagerly cheering for him as he prepares to face off against the formidable Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam 2023. The American Nightmare and The Beast Incarnate have been engaged in a heated rivalry for nearly four months, leading up to a highly anticipated rubber match at the upcoming event.
Initially rumored to be contested under a stipulation, the encounter was later revealed to be a regular one. Nonetheless, fans are anticipating an intense battle between the two competitors as they vie for supremacy in front of a packed crowd in Detroit.
In an exclusive conversation, Cody Rhodes’ sister, Teil Runnels, expressed her optimism that her brother has what it takes to emerge victorious at SummerSlam. However, she acknowledges that defeating Brock Lesnar won’t be an easy task, especially given the intensity and determination displayed by Lesnar in recent appearances on Monday Night RAW.
“I hope Cody’s gonna take this one, but I don’t think it’ll be easy for him. Brock certainly looked like he was on a mission for pain on Monday Night RAW this week. But I’m always rooting for Cody and I think that it’s time to put the beast to bed,” Teil Runnels stated during the chat.

While expectations are high for a thrilling showdown between Cody and Lesnar, Bill Apter shared his insights on the possible outcome during a recent edition of Wrestling Time Machine. The experienced wrestling veteran believes that although The American Nightmare is likely to claim victory, WWE might incorporate a controversial ending to keep Lesnar’s formidable persona intact.
“Cody’s gonna win and it’s not gonna be the end of the story. But it’s gonna be some sort of controversial ending. Not gonna be one where Brock Lesnar is gonna be left looking bad inside the ring. There’s gonna be some sort of stipulation that gonna be in there in the special match, whatever it’s gonna be. But I think Cody Rhodes is gonna come out victorious in this one,” Bill Apter shared his perspective.
Regardless of the eventual outcome, fans can rest assured that Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar will deliver an edge-of-the-seat and enthralling spectacle on August 5th. As the tension builds and anticipation rises, the WWE Universe braces for an unforgettable clash between these two titans of the squared circle.
