The stage is set for an epic showdown at WrestleMania 39, with Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns squaring off in the ring for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Fans are divided into two groups, with some cheering for the underdog Rhodes and others rooting for the dominant Reigns.
Cody Rhodes underwent a rapid transformation from being a lower mid-carder to being recognized as a main-eventer. Through a series of impressive performances and compelling promos, he has demonstrated that he possesses all the necessary skills to win the world championship.
However, here are the 3 reasons why Cody Rhodes should not become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion at WrestleMania 39.
1. Cody Rhodes becoming new world champion at WrestleMania 39 could be boost for WWE’s rival AEW
Awarding the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship to Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39 would suggest that WWE lacks other major stars who are capable of holding the company’s top title.
Since The American Nightmare comes from All Elite Wrestling, this would also enhance the credibility of the rival company brand.
2. WrestleMania 39 may not be the right time for Cody Rhodes to dethrone Roman Reigns
The narrative of Cody Rhodes being determined to fulfill his father’s dream of becoming WWE champion has been a compelling factor that has instilled fans with the belief that Cody is capable of winning the Undisputed title.
However, due to his rapid rise in the championship scene and a lack of organic buildup, not all fans would agree with Rhodes dethroning a Superstar so dominant as Roman Reigns in his first attempt. WWE should invest more in developing Rhodes’ character to ensure his eventual title victory has a greater impact.
3. The Rock vs Roman Reigns must happen after WrestleMania 39
The Bloodline storyline has been one of the most captivating tales to emerge from WWE. To bring this chronicle to a conclusion, there would be no greater finale than seeing The Rock clash with the Tribal Chief for the Head of the table position.
Cody Rhodes will have numerous opportunities to win championship in the future. So, before that occurs, The Rock should have a match with Roman Reigns and elevate him to a whole new level.
