Former Champion Must Turn Face for the First Time on Main Roster and Help Cody Rhodes Defeat Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40

Cody Rhodes will challenge Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns on Night 2 of WrestleMania XL. Considering the number game is in The Tribal Chief’s favor due to the potential presence of The Bloodline, The American Nightmare will likely go into the encounter as an underdog.

If Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins fail to win the tag-team match against The Rock and Roman Reigns on Night 01, the former’s battle with The Head of the Table will be conducted under ”Bloodline rules.” However, despite this, Cody could still come out on top if Solo Sikoa turns his back on the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.

Last year, WWE heavily teased Solo turning on Roman Reigns. While the turn didn’t happen, things may change on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

The Enforcer was built as the next big thing following his main roster debut. Sikoa gained momentum following a clean victory over John Cena at Crown Jewel 2023. However, his recent form has been concerning as the talented wrestler has faced a string of defeats.

Moreover, The Rock’s return has taken the limelight away from the ”Tribal Heir” of The Bloodline. Hence, the former NXT North American Champion needs to come out of the shadows of The Brahma Bull and Roman Reigns and start his own story before it gets too late.

Solo Sikoa helping Cody Rhodes win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania would plant the seeds of a massive feud between the duo, marking the beginning of a new chapter in The Bloodline saga.
