• “If you just give it to him now, did he earn it?” – DX Member On Cody Rhodes’ WrestleMania 39 Loss

Roman Reigns defeated Cody Rhodes in the main event of WrestleMania 39 Sunday to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship to continue his record-setting title reign.

During the post-show press conference, a journalist asked Triple H that this was the perfect opportunity to make Cody the next big babyface with a huge victory over Reigns, so why they passed up on this moment to ‘drag’ Roman’s title reign to 1,000 days.

HHH said it’s not ‘dragging’ things out, as that’s a negative way to look at it. It’s telling a story.

Triple H said he’s very proud of Cody and the story continues on RAW. This was just the end of a chapter. The story never ends in our business.

During a recent edition of his podcast, DX member Road Dogg (who is the WWE Senior Vice President of Live Events) agreed with Triple H’s booking and said the following:

“The argument is a legitimate one to go back now that history has told that story and go, ‘Okay. Should he have got it then? Should he won it then?’ Like, man, I don’t think that’s smart business.

I think that’s great booking if you’re a fan, but I don’t think it’s smart business. If you tell the story and go, ‘The end,’ close the book. Then, ‘Okay, now we got to start over,’ I just feel like this was just a chapter closing.

He came in, and this has been said by some people that speak about wrestling that kinda know what they’re talking about, he came in, and he had no adversity. He went right through the Rumble, right through everybody, and right to the champion.

So the argument could be made, ‘Man, if you just give it to him now, did he earn it?’ Yes, he has over the extension of his career, for sure, if you can tell that whole story, and they have tried to tell that whole story as much as they could if you see in the promos, they talk a lot about what all he’s done because that’s a really cool part of his story is what he has accomplished in this industry. By himself, you know what I mean?

Like, I mean, yes, he’s had some help. Yes, his father was a wrestler, his brother, all that. Man, he came in and changed the game a little bit, and kudos to him for that.

So really, it’s a bigger picture conversation. Whether he has the title around his waist right now or not, let’s just stop and think about what Cody’s done and accomplished from a human standpoint.

Holy mackerel, this dude’s an entrepreneur in the industry of sports entertainment, and that has never existed before.”
