WWE Hall of Famer criticizes Cody Rhodes promo on RAW for feeling “memorized” and “canned”

As seen during the March 18th 2024 edition of WWE RAW, Cody Rhodes cut a promo in response to The Rock’s comments from the March 15th edition of Smackdown. Cody questioned if Rock would have “Big Dwayne Energy” or “Little Dick Syndrome” at Wrestlemania 40. Cody also called Rock a “whiny bitch” and an “asshole.”

While speaking on Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray criticized the promo…

“Did you hear the crowd when Cody said or planted the seed of doubt that he might not finish the story? Groans. They did not want to hear that from him. Not only did he not…fight fire with fire last night with The Rock, but now he’s doubtful again. I don’t mind my babyface having a little self-doubt, but I don’t think it’s the time now, just two weeks out of Wrestlemania, for Cody to have that self-doubt. And you heard the people go ‘Ugh,’ as if he took the wind out of some of his own people’s sails.”

“Last night [Monday] felt memorized, canned. I felt that there was a struggle to come across a different way, as opposed to just naturally coming across that way. You know who cut the best promo on The Rock last night? It was Dustin Rhodes on social media when Dustin said ‘F**k you Rock!’ I would’ve loved to have heard that from Cody last night.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingInc.com)
