Cody Rhodes returning to WWE was one of the most shocking moment in 2022, Cody was part of AEW during It’s early stages, so everybody anticipated Cody would not leave AEW anytime soon.
Kurt Angle recently in his The Kurt Angle Show podcast talked about Cody Rhodes
“He is a huge star,” Angle said. “He’s main-eventing WrestleMania this year. Why? Because he’s a big star. That kid was a star since the day he got in here. He’s Dusty Rhodes’ son. Okay, he’s The American Dream’s son (…) He was destined to become one of the greatest and I’m not surprised by any means he’s at the level he is right now.“(H/T: WrestlingInc)
Cody Rhodes won 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble and he is all set to face Roman Reigns at WWE’s grandest stage. Roman Reigns carrying the championship for more than 2 years, it was anticipated Roman could lose the title at WWE Clash at the Castle, in-front of Drew’s home crowd but Roman retains, Sami Zayn was in run of his life time and even Sami was also unable to dethrone him.
So WWE could be planning for a WrestleMania moment for Cody Rhodes. There is nothing bigger than WrestleMania in pro wrestling, If Roman still retains title at WrestleMania then Roman could hold the title for one more year, because it would not make sense for Roman to lose the title at PLE other than WrestleMania.
