Despite being cast as the underdog, Rhodes displayed unwavering determination throughout the match. Lesnar relentlessly targeted Rhodes’ arm, intensifying the narrative of triumphing over impossible odds. While a victory would have solidified Rhodes’ legacy even further, his defeat was strategically safeguarded to preserve his status as a beloved hero in the eyes of WWE fans.
The match was rife with standout moments, including Rhodes ingeniously utilizing his cast as a formidable weapon against Lesnar. On multiple occasions, Rhodes flawlessly executed his signature move, the Cross Rhodes, but Lesnar’s indomitable resilience was on full display as he repeatedly kicked out. Ultimately, Lesnar secured the victory by ensnaring Rhodes in the excruciating Kimura Lock, forcing him to pass out.
The match’s outcome hints at the possibility of a future rubber match between Lesnar and Rhodes, further heightening the intrigue surrounding their ongoing storyline. Rhodes remains resolute in his pursuit to overcome Lesnar and ultimately challenge Reigns for the illustrious Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
