WHAT’S NEXT FOR CODY?
Enter Cody Rhodes, clutching his ribs intermittently.
He gets in the ring and on the mic and says he knows what he wants to talk about. Today is turning out a lot differently for him than he anticipated. He thought he’d be standing here Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, and he’ll acknowledge this— last night in the main event of WrestleMania 39, Roman was the better competitor.
He knows we always have to do this with the world watching, but he wishes all this wasn’t a factor, because he knows that Reigns knows he’s won a lot of matches where he skated by, where he was barely the victor, but last night wasn’t one of those. Last night Cody says he had him.
So he said he knew what to talk about and it boils down to just one word, and the crowd starts chanting “rematch” before he says it himself. Paul E says he was thinking, on behalf of the Tribal Chief, when exactly would Rhodes like this hypothetical rematch?
Cody wants it tonight!
