Backstage News On The Complicated Cody Rhodes – Roman Reigns – The Rock Angle

The Rock And Cody Rhodes WrestleMania WWE WWF 5 WrestleFeed App

Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, involving Cody Rhodes, Roman Reigns and The Rock.

• According to the Wrestling Observer, Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 40 was the plan in late December, then it was changed to The Rock vs. Roman Reigns on January 3rd, but WWE didn’t inform Cody of the change until the day of Royal Rumble 2024:

“For those who were wondering about what Rhodes did and didn’t know about how things went down, he was told he was facing Reigns in the fall (of 2023).

He was not told about Rock getting the match as part of his deal on 1/3 so any interview he did about finishing the story prior to the Rumble was with the idea he was definitely in the match, even with The Rock rumors out.

He was told the day of the Rumble that Rock was facing Reigns even though he was winning the Rumble. He was also told that they would be going to Reigns against him later so all the post-match stuff building that match wasn’t there to swerve people as much a build a later match.

But the fact it was not going to be Reigns vs. Rhodes was keep secret from almost everyone (obviously a few knew) because Rock wanted the angle the next Friday a surprise.”

• The Rock is officially a part of The Bloodline. He teased appearing at Elimination Chamber in Australia if Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins talk trash, but Triple H said in an interview that The People’s Champion won’t be there.

WWE has now announced that The Rock’s next TV appearance will be on the March 1st episode of SmackDown, which will be next week’s post-Elimination Chamber edition of the show in Glendale, Arizona.

His next appearance is being promoted as “Greatness Is Coming”.
