Cody Rhodes, The Winner Of The Royal Rumble, Going Up Against Roman Reigns In WrestleMania 39 

Despite rumours that WWE will switch the main event of WrestleMania 39, it will have Cody Rhodes, the winner of the Royal Rumble, going up against Roman Reigns, the WWE Universal Champion, in a singles contest. According to sources, the match will most likely be the last one to occur on WrestleMania Night two.

When The American Nightmare prevailed in the 2023 Royal Rumble match, he challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania. However, many people thought that Sami Zayn may be added to the fight because of his rapid ascent to the position of the top babyface and his angle with Reigns. I just wanted to let you know that there aren’t any such plans as of now.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Rhodes vs. Reigns will be the main event of WrestleMania Hollywood’s second night. He stated there are no firm arrangements as to which contest will be the night’s first match. The SmackDown Women’s Championship match between Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley is now the favourite.

The main event of the second night is anticipated to be Reigns vs. Rhodes. Beyond a personal impression that Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley is the current favourite, there is no decision regarding the main event. One would imagine that Usos vs. Zayn & Kevin Owens would be the other favourites. Reigns would only stay on as the World Champion at WrestleMania if the promotion wanted him to reach the significant 1000-day mark.

Cody Rhodes’s unexpected participation in the 2023 Royal Rumble

After WrestleMania, he might pick up his feud with Cody Rhodes or Sami Zayn, only to lose the championship at SummerSlam. Several fans anticipated Cody Rhodes to be one of the unexpected participants in the 2023 men’s event because the Royal Rumble bouts are known for having them. WWE chose to broadcast weekly vignettes about his experience instead of going the traditional way for his injury comeback, and he said on the “MMA Hour” that “it felt good informing them that, ‘Hey, I’m coming back’.”

Though the “American Nightmare” admitted that it “would have been incredibly amazing” to enter the Rumble by surprise, the decision was made to highlight Rhodes’ recovery from injuring his pectoral muscle. About the video taken by Jeremy Borash, he remarked, “It was incredibly nerve-wracking and tense watching those vignettes because it’s not vignettes, it’s like actual surgical footage and real PT material and they’re at my gym.
