In the main event of WrestleMania 39 Sunday, Roman Reigns defeated Cody Rhodes (with help from Solo Sikoa) to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
During a recent interview with BT Sport, Cody explained why he doesn’t talk about this huge loss:
“One thing I didn’t want to do was whine. My buddy, Sean Ross Sapp, half buddy, half not. He was saying, ‘I wish Cody would talk about how he got screwed at WrestleMania.’
I’m thinking, that’s not the way to do it, I’d be kicking my own a$$. No. The story is unfinished. It is. I wanted to move and try to get back to finishing it. That’s where I was at.
I quickly didn’t get over it, it’s not a pain you get over, but I quickly was able to ‘chin up’ and move on to the next thing. Coming to RAW was really tough for me, from a character standpoint and a human standpoint. Very tough.”
During the Money In The Bank 2023 post-show press conference, Cody revealed what John Cena said to him after WrestleMania Hollywood:
“You can be the champ without wearing the title, but you have to be honest with yourself. Look at the numbers everywhere you go, look at the numbers on everything you put out, and if they are telling you it’s cruising and those numbers support that, then you’re on the right path, and I’m been blessed that that has been the case.”
