The hard work and perseverance of Cody Rhodes finally paid off when he dethroned The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns to win the Undisputed WWE Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 40 to a deafening pop from the WWE Universe. WWE fans rallied behind the American Nightmare for almost two years to achieve that victory, and it was worth the wait as the moment was nothing short of spectacular.

The journey might have been arduous, but The Prodigal Son fulfilled his dreams. The WWE Universe has fantasized about several Cody Rhodes dream matches in the company, but there are a few dream matches against stars outside the WWE, and now, under the Triple H era, they might really become a reality.

Let us take a look at a few of Cody Rhodes’s dream matches with top stars outside the WWE:

1. TNA’s Moose vs WWE’s Cody Rhodes

Recently, the WWE Universe was in for a huge surprise when TNA Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace made a shocking appearance on NXT to challenge the NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez at NXT Battleground 2024. History was made at the event as, for the first time, a champion from a different promotion challenged a champion in WWE.

With the spectacular TNA and WWE collaboration going on, one cannot resist but to think of an absolute delight of a dream match that fans could see if the Undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes goes head-to-head against the TNA World Champion Moose, who has been one of the major mainstays on the TNA programming.

2. Cody Rhodes battles it out against Kaito Kiyomiya

For the first time in history, WWE has begun working with other wrestling promotions worldwide, including Pro Wrestling NOAH. This Japanese wrestling promotion was founded in 2000 and is known for its gruelling, strong Japanese wrestling style of matches.

The Undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes has wrestled in Japan several times before joining the WWE again. The American Nightmare is well aware of the Joshi wrestling style. The biggest Cdoy Rhodes dream match out of this partnership with NOAH that fans have been clamouring for is a match between Rhodes and three-time and current GHC Heavyweight Champion Kaito Kiyomiya, who is also known to have one of the most brutal move sets in all of wrestling.

3. Cody Rhodes vs Kid Lykos

PROGRESS Wrestling is an underrated wrestling promotion that hasn’t yet received the spotlight that it deserves and could benefit from an association with the global juggernaut, WWE. The place known for the birth of superstars like Austin Theory is filled with young upstarts who have the potential to be the biggest stars in the future of wrestling.

One of the best wrestlers from the entire roster of Progress Wrestling is their Progress World Champion Kid Lykos, who is heavily praised by both the fans and the critics for his mind-blowing wrestling skills. Moreover, a Cody Rhodes dream match that many fans might not have been expecting but could be a show-stealer is a match against the current Progress World Champion.

4. Former WWE star vs current WWE top star

A superstar who will go down as one of the most underrated superstars of all time in WWE history is the former 205 Live Superstar Mustafa Ali. He was released from the company in the middle of a storyline last year and now finds his home in TNA Wrestling.

One of the biggest Cody Rhodes dream matches that WWE and TNA crossover could make is a match between Mustafa Ali and the Undisputed WWE champion Cody Rhodes. The match holds the potential to be a match-of-the-year contender and will become one of the major highlights of both of their careers.
