WWE champ Seth Rollins teases title bout vs Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 40

WWE star Cody Rhodes made history when he won the Royal Rumble match on January 27 by eliminating CM Punk. In the recent edition of RAW, Seth Rollins confronted the American Nightmare and said to challenge him for the WrestleMania 40 event for the World Heavyweight Championship title.

Recently, ‘The Architect’ teased Cody Rhodes about the potential future bout on Twitter. Rollins shared the post from his account and fans are anticipating the ‘Master of Cross Rhodes’ reaction to who he will decide to fight at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, event.

Seth Rollins hints at Cody Rhodes bout at WrestleMania 40

Seth Rollins has been the champ for some time but due to the injury he suffered, his future course of action was uncertain—that is, until ‘The Architect’ started persuading Cody Rhodes to challenge him for the World Heavyweight Championship on the ‘Show of Shows’.

A little while back, Rollins released a clip of Cody Rhodes, Roman Reigns, and himself on his Twitter account. The video was for the American Nightmare’s choice of opponent in WrestleMania XL, and Seth made it clear that pursuing his title will help Cody more than going after “The Tribal Chief’s” title.

In the video, Seth said, “So tell me Cody, what do you wanna talk about? I know what I wanna talk about. I wanna know where your heart lies. Is your heart set on out-manipulating Roman Reigns? Or would you like to try out-wrestle Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins? What kind of champion do you wanna be?”.

This is not the first time ‘The Aerialist’ mentioned the 38-year-old star in a post. Back on February 1, Rollins said, “If your past has been your North Star, then the path to finishing your story is right in front of you @CodyRhodes.”

Seth Rollins vs Cody Rhodes head-to-head record

Cody Rhodes shocked the WWE Universe when he returned to the Stamford-based company at WrestleMania 38 after six years and faced Seth Rollins, who gave an open challenge for a possible bout. Rhodes later defeated Rollins after he delivered three Cross Rhodes and pinned his opponent on his last finisher.

Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins have clashed several times over the years. According to sources, ‘The American Nightmare’ has defeated ‘The Aerialist’ 22 times in single matches in their long career. A few months after Rollins signed with WWE, he faced Cody in a dark match on SmackDown Live and lost the match after Rhodes outmaneuvered his moves.

Last year, both wrestlers clashed at the Royal Rumble 2023 match. Cody, who was the 30th entrant, came head-to-head against Rollins and both stars started to fight it out, but Logan Paul eliminated ‘The Architect’, and Cody later won his first-ever Royal Rumble match. This year, fans are excited about the WrestleMania 40 event and are anticipating the match between Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins at the Pennsylvania stadium.
