Below are some top WWE news stories of the day, involving Cody Rhodes and The Rock.

• According to PWInsider, WWE officials were originally discussing Cody Rhodes defeating Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 40 to win the WWE Championship and “Finish The Story”.

However, there were also open discussions about Cody winning the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40, and then challenging the winner of Roman vs. The Rock match to a title unification match at SummerSlam 2024.

As we noted earlier, current plan is for Cody to challenge Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania XL.

• In WWE, The Rock’s ideas carry significant weight, and decisions are influenced by the belief that he is the best choice for financial success and to honor his new position in TKO Group Holdings.

According to PWInsider, the move to prioritize The Rock over Cody Rhodes in the WrestleMania 40 main event was seen as a strategic decision to bolster The Rock’s overall political influence within the organization, signaling Endeavor’s confidence in his role. There was no malice towards Rhodes.

Sources suggest that even Chief Content Officer Triple H might lose influence in a power struggle against The Rock at this juncture.

• Last night’s Bayley – Damage CTRL segment on SmackDown was produced by Tyson Kidd.

Bayley turned babyface during this segment and will face IYO SKY for the WWE Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 40.
