Kevin Nash: Cody Rhodes Can Stop Referencing WrestleMania Loss; People Are With You, Don’t Lose Them

Kevin Nash says that Cody Rhodes is referencing his loss to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 too often on WWE TV.

Cody Rhodes was unsuccessful in finishing his story and his attempt to capture the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship from Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. Even though Cody has moved on to a new feud with Brock Lesnar, one WWE Hall of Famer believes that Cody is too comfortable referencing his loss at the Showcase of the Immortals.

Kevin Nash gave his thoughts on the confrontation between Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar on the April 17 episode of WWE Raw on the most recent episode of Kliq This. Nash believes that there were a few miscues in that segment. One such downside, according to Kevin, was the stature of the security guards sent out to separate Rhodes and Lesnar in relation to the men that they were trying to keep apart.

“We have a situation where there’s verbiage and Brock comes down in a fucking duster cowboy hat. So if we go back to the Raw after Mania, Brock jumped Cody and beat him for eight minutes. Cody comes down, and he’s not medically cleared because of the beating that Brock gave him, but wants a piece of him, and for that, they send 25 security guys in waves, not one of them bigger than Cody,” said Kevin. "I know it’s a babyface thing… he wants his pound of flesh, he wants his revenge. But he keeps making reference to the fact that he didn’t win at WrestleMania. That’s absolutely evident since you don’t have a belt. You don’t have to bring it up every week that you didn’t win at WrestleMania. I get it. People are still with you. Don’t lose them. But don’t do this. Don’t walk to the hard camera after Brock leaves and all the smoke is cleared and say, ‘You’re no cowboy, Brock Lesnar, because I know a cowboy…what you are is a coward.’ Now, I don’t know."

Kevin Nash also believes that if Cody Rhodes wasn't going to fight Brock Lesnar, perhaps he should not have been dressed for a fight.

“I just thought that he didn’t have knee pads on. It’s like, don’t tell me that you guys aren’t going. It’s not booked to go. He got in Roman’s face in a three-piece suit, Roman was in a track suit and tennis shoes. I knew that wasn’t going nowhere. Nobody is stupid enough to tear up a $2,000 suit to make it be more realistic," he said.
