They had a plan in mind. We are less than a week away from WWE Night Of Champions, with the show featuring a triple main event. One of the three major matches will be a Backlash rematch as Cody Rhodes faces Brock Lesnar. This comes after Lesnar has repeatedly attacked Rhodes, who refuses to back down. It seems WWE had a special idea in mind during a recent Rhodes segment.

The closing segment of this week’s Monday Night Raw saw Triple H come in to see Rhodes, following Lesnar damaging Rhodes’ arm earlier in the night. Rhodes insisted that he was facing Lesnar at Night Of Champions no matter what, with Triple H accepting the decision. According to Fightful Select, the idea of the segment was to have a major name endorse Rhodes before his match against Lesnar. Night Of Champions is scheduled for May 27 at 1pm EST.

It was a busy night. Check out the segment, plus what Rhodes has been through lately:

Opinion: I get the thinking behind the segment, but Rhodes has already main evented WrestleMania and beaten Lesnar in a major main event. How much more of an endorsement does he really need at this point? There is a good chance that he loses at Night Of Champions and after that, I’m not sure how of a positive impact this kind of an endorsement is going to have.

What did you think of the segment? How will Rhodes do at Night Of Champions? Let us know in the comments below.
