Cody Rhodes Reveals Big Details About The Rock’s WrestleMania 40 Appearance

WrestleMania 40 was marked by the victory of Cody Rhodes, who won the Undisputed WWE Championship. However, initial plans could have changed this timing. The possible arrival of The Rock and his rivalry with Roman Reigns raised doubts about Rhodes’ participation in the show.

The “American Nightmare” commented on the situation surrounding his participation in WrestleMania. “That’s something that can be revealed in the documentary and will put people into perspective,” he told Busted Open Radio. “I heard about the possibility of Rock against Roman Reigns on the day of the Royal Rumble.”


“I had to walk out of a room with my head held high, making sure no one knew what could happen. It was probably one of the hardest days I’ve had. How can you complain about something when you’re winning the Royal Rumble? Point to the sign in front of 20,000 people in Tampa was a moment I came down from very quickly.”

Rhodes highlighted that his path to the ultimate title faced several difficulties. “The month leading up to WrestleMania .

“I had to get a new vehicle and sleep in a bunk bed made for a band. I wasn’t going to perform under the most ideal circumstances. In a normal situation, I would have quit before WrestleMania. But I had that feeling, even before the Royal Rumble , that everything would work out.”

Cody Rhodes’ victory at WrestleMania 40, despite the challenges, solidified his position as one of WWE’s most important stars.
