• Cody Rhodes Comments On Facing Roman Reigns At WrestleMania 39

Cody Rhodes returned to WWE programming during the Men’s Royal Rumble 2023 match and won it from entry #30.

He eliminated Intercontinental Champion Gunther (who was entry #1) in the end to win the match.

With this win, Cody has earned an Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match in the main event of WrestleMania 39.

This most likely means he will face “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns for the Title at the Show of Shows.

During the post-Royal Rumble press conference, Cody was asked about possibly facing Roman in April.

Below is what The American Nightmare said:

“I’ve been very careful about even saying Roman’s name. Because it’s one of those things where I knew and I’m sure he knew. I came back and the first night I’m back on RAW after WrestleMania I was pointing at my waist.

I talked about it in an interview, the real story of wanting to win the WWE Championship, the one title that has eluded the family. And I’m sure he heard that and I’ve watched everything Roman has done.

I have nothing but respect and reverence for Roman. Guys, I can’t tell you I’m the best wrestler in the world. Nobody can, unless their name is Roman Reigns. That’s the best wrestler in the world.

I’d like to think I’m number two and I always say Seth (Rollins) is number three…don’t take my list that seriously. But Roman is undisputed, that’s the best way to put it.

If that is the situation we’re walking into in 60-something days at WrestleMania, I can’t shrivel under the lights. He’s been there before, I haven’t.

It’s going to take everything I could possibly ever muster up and everything I have. But I’ve got to finish this story. It’s real.”
