I have found a solution to my issue, you can try adding
rd.break console=tty0
Rather than just rd.break
This should work fine then follow the other instructions
# mount -o remount,rw /sysroot/
# chroot /sysroot/
# passwd root
Enter new password
# touch /.autorelabel 

this is very important 
Then exit
And reboot

It worked for me and just rd.break didn’t work

Let me know how it goes

Not exactly, I ran it on my own rhel 9.2 VM that I use in practicing for my EX200 exam and it seems to work fine as long as you don’t forget to add anything

Try it on a VM with RHEL 9.0. The EX200 exam is on RHEL 9.0, I've tryed on the labs of RH134 in one is not working as intended.
