A reckoning is coming to WWE Night of Champions when Cody Rhodes once again steps into the ring with Brock Lesnar in a WWE Backlash rematch.
After his WrestleMania loss against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Rhodes was suddenly ambushed by Brock Lesnar just before the two were set to battle Reigns and Solo Sikoa in tag team action on the Raw after WrestleMania. The Beast brutalized The American Nightmare to a stunning and uncomfortable degree, attacking him with steel chairs and everything out in sight.
In a showdown at WWE Backlash, Rhodes miraculously conquered the fury of Lesnar with a crafty pinning combination. However, when he returned to the red brand, he made the mistake of turning his attention away from The Beast and toward the World Heavyweight Championship tournament. Lesnar reemerged from out of nowhere and viciously smashed his adversary through the announce table before making the rematch challenge.
