Referee ends fight between Brock Lesnar against Cody Rhodes at Night of Champions

Brock Lesnar resorted to the Kimura Lock once again and, this time, it worked wonders against Cody Rhodes at the Jeddah Superdome.

The WWE did a great job with setting up a proper finish for the second match between Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar.

Cody Rhodes' adversity tour continues. After insisting that he show up against Brock Lesnar at the WWE Night of Champions 2023 with a broken arm and even briefly using the said arm to his advantage, Lesnar was just too much. Despite his heroic struggle, Rhodes finally passed out from a second Kimura Lock, forcing the referee to step in and end the match, giving Lesnar the win in their ongoing feud.

Rhodes' path toward the unified title belts currently held by Roman Reigns remains very clear - Lesnar is another obstacle he'll have to face en route to dethroning The Tribal Chief.

More importantly, the recent feud between Rhodes and Lesnar silences critics who believe that the WWE handed Rhodes the shot against The Head of the Table. Central to the narrative is Rhodes' resilience, using Rhodes' real-life pectoral injury and his other subsequent on-screen maladies to great effect.

Roman Reigns remains the only person in the WWE to have ever pinned Brock Lesnar twice in a row.

Despite winning at WWE Backlash, Rhodes remained an underdog heading into the Night of Champions. His performance in the loss was convincing as a relentless Lesnar hounded him from the start.

Rhodes' strength and courage in the face of adversity have only added to his popularity with the WWE fanbase. Although Rhodes lost to Lesnar, his journey is far from over. His feud with Brock continues, most likely ending at an upcoming PPV, either at the WWE Money in the Bank on July 1 or WWE SummerSlam on August 5.

Our bet is on the former. Given the WWE is leaning towards extending Reigns' run, don't expect Rhodes' rematch against the top heel of the WWE to come any sooner than WrestleMania 40.

Once Rhodes' rivalry with Brock concludes, we can look forward to seeing fans root for The American Nightmare even more than they are right now.

Fans are now meme'ing at how many injuries Cody Rhodes have suffered en route to finishing his story line against Roman Reigns.

Going back to Rhodes' defeat, his loss came in a valiant effort that saw him pin Lesnar multiple times albeit to no success. Not to mention, Rhodes didn't technically "lose". Instead, the referee had to step in after Rhodes passed out from Lesnar's second Kimura Lock, emphasizing that he'll never give up in the face of adversity.

With the possibility of an upcoming third match between Lesnar and Rhodes, fans can expect another epic clash.

Rhodes remains driven by his ultimate goal - to challenge Reigns again for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The resilience of Cody Rhodes is truly a testament to his unwavering will and tenacity.
