On a recent edition of ‘Busted Open Radio’, 2018 WWE Hall of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley (aka Bully Ray) talked about whether WWF Legend The Rock or WrestleMania 39 main eventer Cody Rhodes should headline Night 2 of WrestleMania 40 to challenge Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns for the title.

Here’s what the famous Tag Team Legend had to say:

“Personally, I believe Cody has earned the right to be the headline. Not deserved, earned, but Rock is the bigger headline.

This discussion reminds me of the movie 12 Angry Men, where it seemed like the verdict was so obvious in the beginning, but by the time they got to it, and they actually discussed it and talked it out, the jury completely flipped.

But when you look at it from pure business, pure dollars and cents, how much more money can The Rock make for the WWE against Roman than Cody?

Where is the significant amount more of dollars and cents going to come in? WrestleMania, physically, is going to sell out, right? Where are we, at what level are we going to make so much more money if The Rock is involved than Cody?”

Obviously Ray’s logic of just selling out WrestleMania – which already happens based on its rich tradition alone – isn’t enough, as WWE still can’t give their fans a mediocre card on purpose, just because ‘the tickets are already sold’.

It would still hurt their business eventually, if they didn’t try to make WrestleMania the greatest event of the year with a lot of unique things happening during the show. That goes especially for the 40th anniversary of this legendary annual event.

At this point, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson seems open to facing his real-life cousin Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, but we have to wait and see who will end up main eventing ‘The Granddaddy of Them All’ at the Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field on April 7th (Night 2) 2024.
