Rhodes took time to reflect on his WrestleMania loss to Reigns. He admitted to being responsible for the outcome and acknowledged his underestimation of Reigns’ tactics. From this experience, Rhodes learned two vital lessons. First the importance of wins and losses, and second that simply headlining WrestleMania is not enough if one does not emerge victorious.

According to Rhodes, Heyman informed him that he must earn an opportunity at the championship. But Rhodes believes he is already deserving of it. He expressed his embarrassment over being attacked by Lesnar on Raw following his defeat at WrestleMania. Insinuating that Lesnar was unhappy with his own position on the card.

Lesnar’s motives for attacking him from behind left Rhodes questioning the former’s perception of his standing in WWE and how Rhodes factored into it. Rhodes went on to speculate that Lesnar may be uncertain of his position in WWE, which could explain his predatory-like behavior towards others.

Rhodes admitted to being afraid of Lesnar, stating that anyone who wasn’t would be foolish. Nevertheless, he expressed his desire to face Lesnar at Backlash and vowed to defeat him, making him his victim. Rhodes challenged Lesnar to accept his challenge and face him in the ring.
