During the show, Andrade and Judgement Day were seen backstage. Dominik Mysterio told Andrade that he likes his style but things have changed. Rhea Ripley responded stating that Judgement Day is an exclusive group and they just don’t hand out invitations, which led to JD McDonagh butting in and saying its a very exclusive group. Finn Balor responded stating that he heard Andrade has a match next week and he will be watching. Andrade then turned around only to stare at someone off-screen, who was revealed to be Damian Priest. Priest called Andrade “idolo” and Andrade responded back calling him “dinero” before walking away.

Cody Rhodes Responds to The Rock & Agrees to Come Alone for Friday’s SmackDown Show

Monday’s RAW show also featured Cody Rhodes responding to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s insults to him and bringing up his mother during this past Friday’s SmackDown show.

During the show, Rhodes came out to the ring and talked about his upcoming Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match against “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 and his talk with Reigns at this Friday’s SmackDown show. Rhodes then turned his attention to The Rock.

Rhodes talked about The Rock’s recent comments on Instagram and followed it with a Rock Concert last week. Rhodes stated that something he took away from Rock’s Instagram post was The Rock refereeing himself as “our favorite heel.” Rhodes then stated that this means he is the bad guy and he has known some heels such as Bobby Heenan, Arn Anderson, and Ric Flair. Rhodes stated that he does not think The Rock is a heel and instead he thinks Rock is an asshole. After some insults by Rhodes claiming Rock has been crying behind the scenes this whole time over not getting his match against Reigns at WrestleMania, Rhodes claimed that the only reason why the guys at TKO told him yes to his plans was because they are just yes people who don’t tell him like it is. Rhodes stated that he will and after some brief praising, he called The Rock a whiny bitch and no one is bigger than the business.

Rhodes then talked about how The Rock brought up his mother but stated that he also knows The Rock’s mom. Rhodes gave his respect to The Rock’s mom and stated that his mother is not scared of The Rock since she is the same lady who had beaten up an undercover cop at a Willie Nelson concert.

After some words about his upcoming tag team match with Seth Rollins at WrestleMania and him not knowing if he will finish his story, Rhodes stated that how can the Rock be so sure he won’t finish his story since The Rock has not been in the ring in years. Rhodes then asked if The Rock is going to bring “The Great One” or is it just going to be “Little Dick Syndrome.”

Rhodes then stated that The Rock calls himself the Final Boss but at WrestleMania, he does not think he will be the final boss and instead is just going to be Roman’s side chick.

This led to Paul Heyman coming out to interrupt and made his way to the ring apron. Heyman talked about how Rhodes must hate it when someone comes out and demands an apology. Heyman stated that he apologizes for what he did a few weeks ago coming out with friends from the NYPD. Heyman stated that this was stupid on his behalf because the plan didn’t work and it was just dumb.

After some words by Rhodes, Heyman stated that he carries with him a message from Roman Reigns and while Rhodes can think of him as someone you can not trust, Roman is someone of his word. Heyman stated that when Rhodes and Reigns go face to face at this Friday’s SmackDown show, Reigns has promised that no other member of the Bloodline will show up. Heyman stated that the only exception is himself since he is nothing more than just a wise man for the Tribal Chief and in no physical threat to Cody. Heyman stated that Reigns also demanded that if Rhodes shows up on SmackDown, then he must come alone. Rhodes responded stating that he accepts the deal and shook Heyman’s hand.
