Yes I can't imagine WWE won't have Cody vs Brock at some point when he is expected to win those titles. I like that idea. 😂

Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes have never faced each other
When it comes to singles competition, Lesnar and Cody Rhodes have never crossed paths. The only time the two top stars were involved in the same match was at the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match earlier this year. Lesnar didn’t last long in the battle royal, and Rhodes ended up winning the whole thing.
Lesnar made his big WWE return in 2012 following an eight-year hiatus. He immediately targeted then-top WWE Superstar John Cena, and the duo kicked off a feud on RAW. Rhodes was a popular mid-card act back then and wasn’t happy over Lesnar’s return.
“And now with the return of Brock … it’s completely different than The Rock. But for me, it kind of just made me angry and not in a way like, ‘Oh, blast. They get to be on another pay per view.’ More in a way that – ‘I’m out there working. I never take a day off. I never plan on taking a day off. I’m so in love with the wrestling business I couldn’t see myself going away. And these guys have that ability to come back in because they have that presence, they have that following and are just automatically accepted as superstars again.'” [H/T Bleacher Report]
Only time will tell if fans get to see the first-time-ever encounter between Rhodes and Brock Lesnar. For now, though, Rhodes’ only focus is taking the two top titles off Roman Reigns.
