– During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray evaluated how top contender Cody Rhodes should handle dealing with The Rock and say he can beat the former WWE Champion in the ring since Cody won’t be able to match The Rock on the microphone. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Bully Ray on why Cody Rhodes should not try to match The Rock on the mic: “The last thing Cody should do is try to match Rock on the mic. It’s not happening. Rocky will absolutely destroy Cody on the mic. That’s not because Cody’s good on the mic, it’s that it’s The Rock, and he’s superior. Only John Cena was able to handle The Rock on the stick, maybe Punk a little bit. You’re talking about the top…percent of guys on the microphone.”

On how Cody Rhodes should say he can beat The Rock: “So if The Rock does, Cody has to sit back and take it and go ‘You know what? I can’t match you on the microphone. And I might not be able to lift as much as you in the gym, and I’m not on a Hollywood star like you, and I’m not this and I’m not that? You know what I can do Rock? I can beat you. I can pin you. And for three seconds, I’ll be damned if I can’t be better than you.’ And smack him right back in the face…Those people will go ballistic for Cody because Cody’s being honest.”

The Rock recently turned heel, joining The Bloodline and Roman Reigns last week on WWE SmackDown. Cody Rhodes is scheduled to face Roman Reigns in a rematch at WrestleMania 40. The event is scheduled for April 6-7 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It will be broadcast live on Peacock.
