WWE is set to invade the land of Puerto Rico this Saturday with its premium live event, WWE Backlash. The pay-per-view would be hosted by the native music icon Bad Bunny and is expected to emerge as one of the most successful editions in the history of the Backlash event. Furthermore, the WWE Universe in Puerto Rico will witness a highly anticipated main event showdown set in stone.
The hard-hitting encounter will feature the American Nightmare Cody Rhodes squaring off against The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar. The heated rivalry began, the night after WrestleMania 39, when Lesnar offered to join forces with Rhodes to battle Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa on RAW. However, right before the match began, Brock launched a sneak attack on the Prodigal Son, leaving him battered and broken as the show came to a close.

With weeks of animosity set to culminate on perhaps the biggest WWE Backlash show ever, here are three possible endings for the main event bout between Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar.
1. The American Nightmare Vanquishes The Beast Into Obscurity
Cody Rhodes has emerged to become the biggest babyface in WWE ever since he came back to the global juggernaut last year. However, his momentum was derailed after suffering a huge defeat at the hands of Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 39. However, the son of Dusty Rhodes could bounce back with a huge win over a decorated athlete in Brock Lesnar.

Everyone is fully aware of the raw power and brute strength possessed by the Alpha Male of All Species. Therefore, Cody’s exceptional in-ring skills, a pair of Cross Rhodes, and perhaps every ounce of stamina and strength would take to combat the fury of Brock Lesnar and triumph over the Beast with a huge victory to close WWE Backlash.
2. Brock Lesnar Leaves Another Nightmare On Cody Rhodes’ Career
While there is no denial of the heart and desire of Cody Rhodes inside the squared circle, he is yet to battle someone with the stature and skills of The Beast, Brock Lesnar. The former UFC champion is known to dominate his opponents like no other with his powerful strikes and submission holds.
Moreover, his one-way trip to Suplex City for his opponents combined with his thunderous F-5 finisher has put down many top WWE superstars in his career. The American Nightmare’s in-ring acumen could fall short in front of Lesnar’s amazing strength and see him suffer a second huge pay-per-view defeat at the hands of the most decorated combat sports athlete.

The heated feud between Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar began on a brutal note after Lesnar launched a heinous attack on the 2023 Royal Rumble winner on the RAW after WrestleMania 39. As the weeks progressed, both superstars have been itching to get their hands on each other only to be stopped by security and WWE officials to preserve the marquee main event for WWE Backlash.
The weeks of frustration and animosity could finally explode in Puerto Rico when Rhodes and Lesnar finally meet inside the ring. Furthermore, the weeks of holding punches could lead to the action going all over the arena, with Cody and Brock physically battering each other and taking it to the absolute limit.

The closing moments of the match could see either seeing both men going through a table, diving through the entrance ramp, or dropping down after connecting a powerful move inside the ring, and the match ending in a no-contest without a decisive winner, after both men fail to answer the referee’s ten-count.
