Cody Rhodes Has An Idea For A Special Weight Belt That Might Be Introduced

When Cody Rhodes competes in the main event for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39, he has an idea for a special weight belt that might be introduced. After being let go by WWE in May 2016, Rhodes had a notable run on the independent circuit that led to him joining forces with The Elite.

Rhodes traveled to other important promotions like New Japan Pro-Wrestling and Ring of Honor before joining AEW as an EVP. Rhodes wants to demonstrate that he hasn’t forgotten what led him to the dance by preparing for the greatest match of his in-ring career now that he’s back in WWE. He discussed his concept for a personalized weight belt on “My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox” during his appearance.

Rhodes stated, “I was considering creating a weight belt for Mania with every independent wrestling promotion I’ve been to inscribed on it in text.” When that was brought up, Matt Cardona said, “Well, you can’t manufacture a toy out of that.” I acknowledged that to be the case, but I was still motivated. He continued by saying that despite the fact that a belt of this nature cannot be sold, he still can’t help but feel the desire to carry it out.

Novelty aside, Rhodes declared, “I think I’m going to do it, and perhaps make a game-day decision on it.” Making toy weight belts was one of “The American Nightmare’s” requests when he returned to WWE, he claimed. Bruce Prichard, a WWE executive, is to be commended, according to Rhodes, for seeing to it that the demand was met.

WrestleMania 39 match

Cody Rhodes successfully returned to WWE last year after spending six years away from the organization. He took part in a number of wrestling promotions while he was away from home, and he plans to honour that experience in his WrestleMania 39 match. Following his departure from WWE in 2016, The American Nightmare went on to have a successful independent career.

He competed in matches for a number of promotions, such as Northeast Wrestling, PWG, ROH, and Evolve. Also, he contributed to the 2019 development of AEW as one of its brains. At WrestleMania 38, Rhodes made a comeback to the Stamford promotion as Seth Rollins’ unknown foe. Before Cody’s injury stopped him, the two had a brief feud.
