Cody Rhodes To Face Dominic Mysterio At WWE Money In The Bank
After being forced to take a break from trying to get the better of Brock Lesnar with The Beast taking time off, Cody Rhodes ended up on an unexpected side quest. While appearing on Miz TV, Rhodes was confronted by Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley with Dom-Dom getting in a cheap shot before running away.
This led to Rhodes challenging Dom to a match at Money In The Bank. Ripley accepted the match on Dominik’s behalf as her Latino Heat delivered another chap shot.
On Raw, Rhodes decided to make his presence felt, confronting Dominik and Ripley, claiming that the second-generation star is only half the man his father is, dubbing him “a scared little boy.”
