– During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray discussed the next phase of The Rock in WWE. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Bully Ray on the next phase of The Rock as The Final Boss in WWE: “I’m looking forward to this next phase for The Rock because ya know, whenever the bad guy gets defeated in the movie, the bad guy always goes and regroups and comes back stronger, a la The Empire Strikes Back. You know, Luke and the Rebels blew up the Death Star but Vader comes back strong in Empire, that’s what I’m looking for from The Rock.” 

On The Final Boss potentially beating Cody Rhodes to win the title: “I would not even mind The Rock taking that strap off of Cody and making Cody chase again … I don’t believe that Cody needs to have some kind of credible long run a la Roman or anybody else. Cody’s story was that of the underdog who fought through, who fought the Final Boss who overcame the Final Boss and finally Roman Reigns … I have no problem with Rock coming in and defeating Cody if Rock’s going to stick around right and at least do some business with the WWE, not just disappear.” 

The night after WrestleMania 40: Night 2, The Rock told Cody Rhodes he would return and likely target Rhodes and the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. At WrestleMania 40: Night 2, The Final Boss pinned Cody Rhodes in a tag team match in the main event.
