WWE superstar Cody Rhodes has dominated wrestling discussions after securing his second consecutive Royal Rumble victory. This victory has elevated him to the forefront of the WWE narrative. Surprisingly, despite initial speculations of a potential challenge from The Rock, Rhodes has chosen to vie for Roman Reigns’ title at WrestleMania, capturing the attention and curiosity of fans worldwide.
The emotionally charged American Nightmare candidly addressed his WrestleMania 40 kickoff press conference confrontation with the tribal chief and the people’s champion, expressing gratitude to fans for their unwavering support. However, the moment took an unexpected turn when Seth Rollins intervened, extending his support to Rhodes in his upcoming clash against Reigns and The Bloodline.
Despite widespread fan approval for Rhodes as the preferred contender against Reigns, there’s one notable figure in the wrestling industry who remains unswayed: Vince Russo. Criticism arose from Vince Russo, who recently expressed his discontent with Rhodes’ segment. Russo argued that Rhodes’ manner of speaking lacks relatability to the average person, drawing a parallel with broadcaster Dave LaGreca.
His critical comments shed light on the diverse opinions circulating within the wrestling community. He said, “This is why I don’t like Cody Rhodes. Who are you talking to, man? ‘The Levity in my candour’, who are you relating to besides Dave LaGreca? Who are you relating to? Who relates to that?”
Will The Rock leave Cody Rhodes going against Roman Reigns?
As fans eagerly anticipate the unfolding storyline involving Cody Rhodes, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and The Rock, only time will reveal the intricate plans the promotion has mapped out on the Road to WrestleMania.
