• Cody Rhodes Hopes To Bring Back The Winged Eagle Design If He Becomes Champion
The main goal of Cody Rhodes in his current WWE run is to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
During an interview on WWE’s After The Bell podcast, Cody noted that he hopes to bring back the legendary Winged Eagle Title design (which was last seen in 1998) if he becomes champion.
Below is what Rhodes said:
“Hypothetically, it would be something to do that, achieve the ultimate industry dream, being the best of the best ever, in terms of that moment in time, and then to perhaps give it a fresh coat of paint with the Winged Eagle, the redundantly named title we are discussing. That would just be something. That’s all I can really say.”
Cody recently teased this on his Instagram story too, where he posted a photo of the Winged Eagle WWF Championship:
