Former two-time Intercontinental Champion, Cody Rhodes wrestled Seth Rollins in a dark match after this week’s SmackDown concluded. Rhodes defeated the Visionary after delivering three consecutive Cross Rhodes.

The 36-year-old has been on a roll and has produced some scintillating matches since his return to Vince McMahon’s company. It has been just over a month that the former AEW Star has made his much-awaited come back to WWE and he has already produced some fantastic matches on RAW against the likes of Kevin Owens and The Miz.

Many opined that his match with Rollins at WrestleMania 38 was the best among all the bouts that took place at the event. Whenever Rhodes has made an appearance, fans have begun chanting his name at the top of their lungs.

After his match against Rollins, Rhodes was busy taking pictures with his fans at ringside. A young fan jumped the barricade and tried to get a picture with Rhodes. In the video below, it can be seen that Rhodes was a tad surprised by the fan touching him from behind. As security came toward the child, Cody asked where his parents were before requesting him to return back to his seat.

Rhodes tweeted about the incident and also confirmed that the kid had got the photo in the end.

“This popped me. He ended up getting the pic. Good kiddo”

According to PWInsider, another incident took place involving a young fan at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York. Rhodes spotted a young fan with a sign noting that it was his birthday.

Cody was circumspect at first thinking if he was allowed to bring the fan up to the ring but later said “screw it” and lifted the young boy on the ring apron for the fans in attendance to sing him Happy Birthday to close out the taping.
