Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes made official for WWE Backlash

Rhodes is getting his shot at Brock Lesnar. 

On the April 10th episode of Monday Night Raw, Cody Rhodes called out Brock Lesnar for a match at WWE Backlash on May 6th in Puerto Rico. 

Rhodes came out to the ring to call Lesnar out on tonight’s Raw but Adam Pearce attempted to stop Rhodes from doing so because he’s not ‘medically cleared’ at the moment. Pearce ordered a multitude of security guards to come the ring but Rhodes still called Lesnar out.

Once Lesnar came from behind the curtain, Pearce stressed that he’ll give Cody the match but does not want him to go after Brock but Rhodes did it anyway.
