In a recent interview, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash provided a candid insight into the injury tendencies of a current RAW Superstar, raising eyebrows and sparking discussions within the wrestling community. The conversation centered around the highly-anticipated WWE Crown Jewel event, where Cody Rhodes is slated to face off against Damian Priest in a singles match, a contest that has generated considerable excitement and speculation. During the interview, Sean Oliver pointed out Cody’s seemingly injured state and inquired about his clearance status for the upcoming Crown Jewel match.
While Kevin Nash couldn’t offer a definitive answer regarding Cody’s injury status, he openly shared his perspective by stating that Cody Rhodes “gets hurt a lot.” This revelation has naturally led to questions about the impact of injuries on Cody’s career trajectory and the potential hurdles he may need to overcome in the wrestling ring.
Cody Rhodes had recently achieved a significant milestone in his WWE career when he secured a victory over the formidable Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam 2023. The match culminated in a momentous and unexpected gesture, with Lesnar extending his hand in a sign of respect, shaking hands with Cody, a moment that resonated deeply with fans and the wrestling community.
During an episode of Kliq This, Kevin Nash openly discussed this pivotal moment and shared his admiration for the unexpected show of respect from Brock Lesnar. Nash revealed that this unexpected gesture had changed his perception of Cody and spoke volumes about the high regard Lesnar held for him. Nash also expressed his belief that Cody has a genuine love for the wrestling business, extending his congratulations and well wishes to Cody and his family.

Nash elaborated on the moment, stating,
“I didn’t know how manufactured [the] Cody [moment] was. If it was because of the Peacock [documentary] and all the things that make you go … ‘Is the machine pushing him or are the people really behind him?’ It could be both, but I heard that it was not in the script, nor was it discussed, for Brock to shake his hand and raise his hand. I heard it was impromptu on Brock’s behalf as he felt he [Cody] was worthy.”
He continued by saying,
“That spoke volumes about how Brock felt about Cody. That also changed my opinion, since I’ve never been in the ring with Cody. Obviously, you feel that energy when you’re in the ring with a guy. I was very happy [for Cody] because the roster is not that full. You can’t afford to mishandle a talent, and they didn’t [with Cody]. I am proud of him because I think really loves this business. I’m happy for him, for Dusty, and the Rhodes family.”
Amid this intriguing mix of events and revelations, Cody’s loyal fans continue to support his journey, hoping for a storybook ending at WWE WrestleMania 40. As the wrestling world looks forward to the future, only time will reveal whether Cody Rhodes will have the opportunity to script a memorable chapter by challenging Roman Reigns for the top prize in WWE, overcoming potential injury concerns in the process.
