Cody Rhodes returned to WWE after seven long years at Wrestlemania 38 and made a big impact in the wrestling industry. Since returning to WWE, Rhodes has been focused on finishing his story of becoming the World Champion. However was pulled away from the championship spotlight by various factors. 

Cody Rhodes indeed had a chance, where he won the 2023 Royal Rumble and main evented WrestleMania 39 challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Cody pushed Roman Reigns to the limit that nobody ever pushed, but unfortunately wasn’t able to win the championship as Solo Sikoa cost him the match. Cody didn’t get a championship rematch then and was drafted to a different brand, that took him away from Roman Reigns. 

As the whole WWE Universe is waiting for Cody Rhodes to have a rematch against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, ‘The Great One’ The Rock made a surprise appearance on SmackDown a couple of months ago. He also revealed at The Pat McAfee Show that The Rock vs Roman Reigns was locked for WrestleMania 39, but got scrapped.

However, he said that he is open for Wrestlemania 40 in Philadelphia. With confusion circulating who will face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, Cody Rhodes addressed the possibility of The Rock’s possible availability and his stand.

Cody Rhodes not worried about The Rock

Cody Rhodes recently appeared for a chat with Busted Open Radio, where ‘The American Nightmare’ said a lot about The Rock and said that he isn’t afraid of anyone, who lines up to climb the ladder to earn his spot.

Cody Rhodes says,

“Nobody has asked me about The Rock. I think they’re scared to ask me or they don’t want to be rude. I’ll say this about The Rock. Coming on Pat’s show [The Pat McAfee Show], which I was watching live because I love Pat and then SmackDown. The Rock did for sports entertainment so much, and continues to do so much by being the biggest star in Hollywood, that I’m able to be at the level that I’m at because I can stand on shoulders like those of The Rock’s.

He could have come on there and run me down and I would still have the highest respect for The Great One. He’s honestly a model superstar for anyone who wants to supersede expectations. With that said, no matter what he said, anyone who asked me or confronted me on it. I’m not flinching. I’m not flinching.”

“I feel if The Rock and I were in the same room, he would expect nothing less from me. If you think it’s somebody else, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure you know it’s me. That’s the same attitude The Rock had when he was climbing the ladder. I don’t care who it is. If that happens to be The Rock.

If it happens to be anybody. A wonderful superstar like LA Knight, a stellar performer like Sami Zayn. Line them up and I’m going to do everything I can to outrun them. I mean that with the utmost respect. I wasn’t shook at all by Rock’s big day out. What I would say is: not flinching. If Rock is part of WrestleMania 40, that would be outstanding, it’s The Rock, but I don’t think he’ll be in my spot.” [h/t Ringside News]

Could ‘The American Nightmare’ able to finally finish his story on or before WrestleMania 40? Or Will ‘The Great One’ return to claim ‘The Tribal Chief’ status?
