• WWE Is Already Pushing Cody Rhodes In A Big Way (Photo)
Former Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes returned to WWE after 6 years at WrestleMania 38.
On his first night back, he defeated former WWE Champion Seth Rollins.
The next night on RAW, Cody made it clear that the main goal of his current run is to win the WWE Championship, a Title that no one from his family ever won.
On last week’s RAW, Cody defeated The Miz. After the match, Cody agreed to face Rollins in a rematch at WrestleMania Backlash on May 8.
WWE is already pushing Cody in a big way.
An advertisement for WWE aired on NBC and Cody was shown as the face of RAW and Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was shown as the face of SmackDown in that ad.

Many fans are waiting for a feud between Roman & Cody. Rhodes said the following about Reigns on WWE’s The Bump:
“He has truly gotten over via consistency and via hard work. What he has going now with Paul Heyman and with [The Usos]. He’s an intimidating presence.
Obviously, again, it exists. There’s a match out there that is likely ‘THE Match’ that exists out there.
But before the matches, you’ve gotta cross paths in some capacity and we haven’t yet, and I look forward to that.”
