• Cody Rhodes & Seth Rollins Almost Got Into A Fistfight Due To WrestleMania Main Event Spot
Cody Rhodes returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38 and defeated Seth Rollins on his very first night back.
Rhodes then went on to defeat Rollins at WrestleMania Backlash and inside Hell in a Cell as well, with a torn pec.
The American Nightmare then returned from injury and won the Men’s Royal Rumble 2023 match, and is now going to main event WrestleMania 39 this Sunday night, where he will challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
During an interview on the Dan LeBatard Show, Cody was asked if he ever got into a legitimate fight backstage.
Below is what the former Intercontinental Champion said:
“I almost would say that I like less people than I dislike in terms of the backstage setting. The competition that exists in wrestling, you see that suspension of disbelief on-screen, but backstage it is very real in terms of the competition, who is going to be on top.
For example, who is going to headline WrestleMania. This year, being Roman Reigns and myself, it makes you, it doesn’t garner a lot of friends.
Seth Rollins is the closest I’ve ever had to backstage turning into a fistfight in front of all of our peers and upper management. It didn’t happen.
Him and I absolutely can’t stand one another. I’d probably try and rip his eyes out and have a situation between Scott Steiner and DDP.”
