Cody Rhodes announced that he plans to take on Roman Reigns again after winning the Men’s Royal Rumble match yesterday. Reigns watched the match from the best seat in the arena, and his reaction to Cody’s victory spoke volumes.
Last year, at WrestleMania 39, The American Nightmare lost to Roman Reigns in the main event and later demanded a rematch. However, Brock Lesnar attacked him, starting a feud between the two. It has been a long journey for Cody in the past year, and he will once again have a chance to face Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 40.
Roman Reigns barks an order at the WWE social media team
Cody Rhodes achieved a rare feat by winning the men’s Royal Rumble match for two consecutive years. During his victory celebration, he made it clear that Roman Reigns was his intended opponent for WrestleMania 40. WWE’s social media post, which caught the attention of Reigns, had an interesting caption.
At this year’s WrestleMania, The American Nightmare will have another opportunity to finish his story. In the previous year, he lost to Roman Reigns in the main event, forcing him to pursue another title shot. This year, Cody Rhodes determined his fate by eliminating CM Punk and winning the Royal Rumble.
After Rhodes won, he pointed to the WrestleMania 40 sign and set his sights on Reigns, indicating his intentions to challenge him. Reigns appeared concerned, and WWE shared a video of his reaction on Instagram, with a caption implying that he was frightened. In response, the current WWE Universal Champion asked the company to remove the post.
Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes to headline WrestleMania 40
Cody Rhodes achieved a remarkable feat at the WWE Royal Rumble 2024. He won the 30-man Battle Royale event consecutively, becoming the first person to do so after Stone Cold Steve Austin. During the post-show press conference, the American Nightmare announced his intention to challenge Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40.
At WrestleMania 39, there was a collision between two stars, Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes. The Tribal Chief, with the help of Solo Sikoa, emerged victorious. However, Cody Rhodes has earned another chance to challenge the leader of The Bloodline as he emerged victorious in the 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble Match.
During the Royal Rumble Post-Show Press Conference, the two-time Rumble winner made it clear that he would challenge Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. The American Nightmare also stressed that he intended to finish the story this time.
“So, I am very glad that he decided to take the skybox seat because you can make it very clear where we’re at. [With] all the respect in the world for Seth Rollins, that title gains more prestige every single day, but WrestleMania 39 did happen. And if you’re me, you can’t look at that, and you can’t run from it. I don’t know, WrestleMania 40, Monday Night RAW, SummerSlam, I don’t know, Elimination Chamber. I want to be back in the ring with Roman Reigns, and I want to finish the story,” said Cody Rhodes.
