Former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz appeared on an episode of The Ringer’s Masked Man Show podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including how Undisputed WWE Champion “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes delivered the promo that The Rock would face Roman Reigns instead of him with his heart and emotions on his sleeve.

Gewirtz said, “Cody is a human being who is genuine and real and he wears his heart and emotions on his sleeve. If you read the transcript, you’re like ‘Nixon kicked [Kennedy’s] ass’ but if you watch it it’s like ‘Oh he [Nixon] was a sweaty terrible mess.”

On how Rhodes is one of the realest people he has ever met especially after he cut that promo:

“He looked like someone shot his dog in the face in the parking lot. That, I don’t think helped matters…I don’t blame Cody for that. He’s real. He’s one of the realest people I’ve ever met.”

On how Rhodes’ body language and fan reaction to the angle left WWE with a choice:

“We could push forward like WWE has often done, …or we could do something pretty incredible.”
