Bully Ray & Tommy Dreamer Evaluate Cody Rhodes & The Rock’s Promo Battle



Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins will face The Rock and Roman Reigns in a tag team match at WrestleMania 40 (Night One). Rhodes will then challenge Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 40 (Night Two).

On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer evaluated Cody and The Rock’s promo game on the Road To WrestleMania 40.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

Bully Ray on The Rock’s promo on SmackDown in Memphis: “It’s impossible not to cheer for The Rock … Rock very rarely says ‘I’m home,’ so now he’s referring to Memphis, TN as ‘home?’ Anything he says after that is gonna get a babyface reaction.”

On comparing the Superstar to Jesus: “It’s like seeing Jesus. You’re seeing one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and in professional wrestling and you’re getting The Rock live in front of your face. You’re programmed to respond in a certain way … You’re going to pop.”

Tommy Dreamer on Cody Rhodes’ Raw promo this week: “I thought it was a different side of Cody that we haven’t seen in a long time. How do you make a great promo better? You bring in Paul Heyman.”

On why it was compelling: “That was 26 minutes of compelling talk. Cody held the audience and had a lot of nice zingers. … The rules don’t apply to everybody when you’re going that route. There’s certain things you don’t talk about and it’s escalating. This kind of made it more about Rock and Cody than Roman and Cody.”

On how Cody can now hold his own against The Rock: “For the longest time I didn’t think that anybody could crack [the] whip with The Rock. I think Cody could hold his own and even though it’s not cracking whip with The Rock, he’s cracking whip with Roman.”
