• WWE Is Planning A Big Surprise For WrestleMania 38
In a backstage segment on last night’s RAW, Seth Rollins was asked about his WrestleMania 38 status. He remained quiet, while the fans chanted “Cody”.
Later in another backstage segment, Kevin Owens motivated Rollins to find a new route to WrestleMania 38.
Rollins suddenly smiled as if he has an idea. Seth then came out jumping and happy to the ring. Seth said he has found a way to get on the WrestleMania 38 card. Rollins then called Kevin Owens out.
Rollins said Owens has a talk show with Stone Cold Steve Austin scheduled for WrestleMania, what if he also starts a talk show and brings Austin on it? Owens said that’s a bad idea and Austin is his guest.
Seth said he agrees – there can be only one talk show at WrestleMania. Seth then said they should have a match tonight, with the winner doing a talk show with Austin as the guest at WrestleMania 38.
Sonya Deville then came out and booked Rollins vs. Owens for tonight’s main event. Winner of this match will host their talk show at WrestleMania 38 with Stone Cold as their guest.
In the main event, Owens defeated Rollins.
As we all know, WWE wants to book Seth Rollins vs. Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 38 if Cody signs.
After Rollins’ loss, Cody’s arrival was teased when the Commentators said Rollins’ WrestleMania hopes have been “dashed” and that his vision has become an “absolute nightmare”.
These were references to Cody’s “Dashing” character in WWE and “American Nightmare” character in AEW.
As we reported earlier, one AEW EVP believes Cody has signed with WWE and will face Seth at WrestleMania.
In an update to this situation, the Wrestling Observer is reporting that Cody vs. Seth is definitely happening at WrestleMania 38 and that Cody will directly return at the Show Of Shows:
“He’s coming, that’s it. He’s wrestling Seth at WrestleMania. I sure watched this not thinking anything’s changing.
How they do it, I think they may end up doing the Hardys thing where you know they’re coming and they don’t announce it and they just show up the day of the show. They may be doing that one.”
