Cody Rhodes Says Making Eye Contact With Top Star Moments Before WrestleMania 40 Win Meant The World To Him

Roman Reigns Vs Cody Rhodes WrestleMania 39 PPV WWE 10 WrestleFeed

Cody Rhodes had a career-defining moment at WrestleMania 40, where he emerged victorious against Roman Reigns to capture the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. This epic bout saw Cody receiving unexpected assistance from Jey Uso, John Cena, and The Undertaker, who helped him fend off The Bloodline faction, comprising Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa, and The Rock.

In a recent appearance on “Behind The Turnbuckle” with Jonathan Coachman, Cody Rhodes shared his thoughts on this monumental achievement and highlighted a particularly memorable moment from the event.

A Moment to Cherish

When asked about a highlight of his career, Cody Rhodes didn’t hesitate to point to WrestleMania XL. He described the event as unforgettable, not just for the victory itself but for a special interaction that took place during the match.

“It’s probably really easy for me to say WrestleMania 40 itself. Both nights,” Cody began. “There is a particular moment at WrestleMania 40 that will stick with me forever. It’s not necessarily the one, two, three as much as I was really big under the learning tree and a student of John Cena’s. I liked his model, from a businessman, as a babyface character in wrestling. More than that, I liked the model and the standard he set as a human being. As a good ambassador for wrestling. As an authentic ambassador. Our fans can smell when this is not authentic. He was the right person for that job.”

The Power of Eye Contact

Cody then recounted a poignant moment involving John Cena during the match. As The Undertaker and The Rock had their moment in the ring, Cena stood off-camera, observing the climax of the match.

“We’re in the ring, and Undertaker and Rock have their moment. John is off camera against the back wall, watching the end of Roman and I, as we’re both coming up. I just got to make eye contact with John. I don’t think I’ve ever learned anything more in my life than just the moment of eye contact with the captain, the leader, the dude. He’s out here to be part of this for me. It’s super touching. Having that moment with him, just brief contact, knowing I’m about to turn around and what’s about to happen, that’s the high of highs,” Cody shared.

A Legacy Continued

Cody Rhodes’ victory at WrestleMania XL not only marked the culmination of his journey but also symbolized the continuation of his family’s legacy in professional wrestling. With the support and acknowledgment from legends like John Cena, Cody’s triumph became even more significant.

As Cody Rhodes continues to make his mark in WWE, this WrestleMania moment will undoubtedly remain one of the most cherished highlights of his storied career.
