Cody Rhodes was unable to defeat Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 39. However, Cody is still focused on finishing his story at the Grandest Stage of Them All.
The American Nightmare and The Tribal Chief met face-to-face on the October 13th episode of SmackDown for the first time since April.
Recently, The Rock indicated that he’s open to facing his cousin Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. Therefore, fans are confused as to who will face Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania next year.
Today, Cody Rhodes appeared on Busted Open Radio and said that he’s ready to outrun everyone including The Rock. The American Nightmare added that Rock won’t be in his spot at WrestleMania 40.
“I feel like 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 gonna do everything I can to make sure you know it’s me and that’s the same attitude that The Rock had when he was climbing the ladder. I don’t care who it is. If that happens to be The Rock or anybody who comes into this fray [such as] a wonderful Superstar like LA Knight [or] an absolutely stellar performer like Sami Zayn, who him and I went toe to toe in a way last year. Line em up and I’m just gonna do everything I can to outrun them. I mean that with the utmost respect to them. I wasn’t shook at all by Rock’s big day out. What I would say is I’m not flinching. If Rock’s part of Wrestlemania 40, that would be outstanding. He should be, it’s The Rock but I don’t think he’ll be in my spot.”Cody Rhodes
