After Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns defeated Cody Rhodes in the main event of WrestleMania 39, there was speculation that WWE might do a rematch at WrestleMania 40.
WrestleVotes reported the following last month:
“I can say this. The rematch that’s at the forefront of everybody’s minds, Cody vs. Roman, is very much on the table to main event in Philadelphia next year.”
Earlier this month, WRKD Wrestling is reporting that WWE might do Cody vs. Gunther at WrestleMania 40:
“While it’s still early, discussions have taken place for RAW’s main event for WrestleMania 40 to potentially be Cody Rhodes vs. Gunther.
Both superstars have expressed interest in working with each other in the past and are seen as the top face and heel on the RAW roster.”
In an update from the Wrestling Observer, WWE’s long-term plan is to do a rematch between Reigns and Rhodes:
“As far as long-term goes, Reigns vs. Rhodes is the long-term direction for the ultimate destination match. WrestleMania (40) is a strong possibility but this far out there are so many things that can happen.”
