Cody Rhodes Will Face Roman Reigns 

For The First Time On WWE SmackDown Cody Rhodes Will Face Roman Reigns 

The match between Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns, the undisputed WWE Universal Champion, has been eagerly anticipated by the WWE audience. We got to know on “WWE Raw” on Monday night that it will reportedly take place later this week.

The American Dream announced that he will be at “SmackDown” on Friday after securing yet another victory, this time over Chad Gable of Alpha Academy. This Friday, Roman Reigns will be on “SmackDown,” and Rhodes was thrilled about it because he would be attending as well. Paul Heyman, Reigns’ special counsel, virtually assured that his client and Rhodes will square off on “SmackDown” in a backstage interview that took place after “Raw.”

The victor of the 2023 Royal Rumble fight for men hasn’t talked to “The Tribal Chief” directly, but Heyman has been a pain in Rhodes’ side for a while. Yet, as WrestleMania 39 approaches, not even Heyman can stop Rhodes’ momentum. Rhodes hasn’t dropped a bout since making a comeback to the promotion last year and defeating Seth Rollins at The Show of Shows. In a few weeks, we’ll learn whether that streak can last.

WrestleMania 39

As we prepare for “SmackDown” later this week, Reigns may not even be on “The Head of the Table’s” mind regarding Rhodes. After Elimination Chamber, Reigns needs to take care of some The Bloodline-related matters, the most important of which is Jey Uso’s loyalty. Despite being present at the conclusion of the previous episode, Jey watched from the audience as Sami Zayn kicked Jimmy.

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.
