As seen in the main event segment of last night’s SmackDown, Cody Rhodes said he’s coming for Roman Reigns and the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, but not at WrestleMania 40.

The American Nightmare then basically gave the WrestleMania 40 main event to The Rock.

The Wrestling Observer reported the following about why WWE changed the WrestleMania 40 – Night 2 main event from Reigns vs. Rhodes II to Rock vs. Reigns:

“The Rock pushed super hard for it. The (WrestleMania 40) card changed when CM Punk & Brock Lesnar were out and all the dominoes fell.

Dwayne already wanted it and [WWE] felt they now needed it as well. Felt this was better to change the news flow away from Vince (McMahon).

Cody was the plan. Dwayne was going to face [Roman Reigns] later, maybe next year’s Mania, maybe Saudi. The Vince thing ends up worse than they thought and they changed the plan.

100% it was Punk vs. Seth and Cody vs. Reigns until Punk got hurt.”

WWE will officially announce The Rock vs. Roman Reigns at next Thursday’s WrestleMania 40 press event in Las Vegas.

After SmackDown went off the air, Drew McIntyre mocked The American Nightmare by posting the following GIF of Cody:

Cody’s wife Brandi Rhodes tweeted the following after this segment:


Paul Heyman posted the following on Threads:

“As my father used to say, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean the whole world is NOT against you!
