The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes is arguably the face of the wrestling juggernaut, WWE as he has finally dethroned The Head of the Table, Roman Reigns, and ended his historic and record-setting 1316-day reign as the Undisputed WWE Champion.

Cody Rhodes is now counted among the biggest main event stars to ever wrestle in a WWE ring. Commanding roaring and thunderous reactions, Rhodes is definitely on his way to the top of the food chain. But as we saw with Roman Reigns, one day will also see the demise of Cody Rhodes’ title reign.

Moreover, fans have started to wonder who will dethrone The Prodigal Son after the start of his remarkable reign which has also met with some criticism. Let us dive deep and take a look at 4 potential WWE Superstars who might get the job done in snatching the title from Cody Rhodes.

1. Roman Reigns exacts his revenge from Cody Rhodes

Roman Reigns is one of the most legendary WWE superstars of all time. Some would even argue that Reigns has surpassed all other former WWE legends in terms of star power, fame, and defining WWE like no other flagship star was able to do in their prime.

However, The Tribal Chief’s historic title run with the Undisputed WWE Championship ended when Cody Rhodes defeated him at WrestleMania 40 in the main event. Ever since then, there’s been no sitting for The Tribal Chief on WWE television programming except for a tweet sent out the night after his loss. So, a match between the two seems inevitable at this point and that is where Reigns can take his revenge and take back the title he made credible in the modern era.

2. The Rock puts down The American Nightmare for his family’s honor

The Rock sent shockwaves through the WWE Universe when he returned to WWE programming to be a prime fixture on the road to WrestleMania 40. The Rock was all set to battle The Tribal Chief in perhaps what could have been the greatest main event in WrestleMania’s history. But the massive fan backlash by the ‘Cody crybabies’ took over on all the social media platforms and made it clear that they wanted to see Cody, not The Rock to battle Roman in the main event of this year’s WrestleMania.

Following that, The Rock joined forces with Roman Reigns to take down Cody Rhodes and former WWE World Champion, Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 40 Saturday that initiated a heated rivalry with The American Nightmare himself. Moreover, The Rock hinted at challenging Cody Rhodes for a one-on-one match after The Show of Shows and many fans expect The Rock to face Cody Rhodes in the near future. If that happens, there’s a very good chance of The Rock holding the gold by dethroning The American Nightmare for the honor of his family.

3. The Ring General is a huge threat to Cody’s Championship

Gunther has established himself as one of the most accomplished superstars in WWE history. Being one of the most lethal superstars to ever compete in a WWE ring, The Ring General is a huge threat to any champion in history. Furthermore, the longest reigning NXT UK Champion in history has beaten the likes of former World Champions in Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, Braun Strowman, and many more to show his mettle inside the squared circle.

Moreover, Cody Rhodes has made it clear that Gunther is one of his dream matches, and would love to put his championship on the line against The Leader of Imperium. That could set the tone for Gunther, who has his eyes set on winning a World Title for an eventual clash between them might result in The Ring General crushing The Prodigal Son to snatch his title.

4. Carmelo Hayes can establish himself at the expense of Cody Rhodes

The dark horse who could be a potential threat to the reign of Cody Rhodes as the Undisputed WWE Champion is the young upstart and NXT standout Carmelo Hayes, who has recently debuted on Friday Night SmackDown as part of the WWE Draft 2024.

The A Champ of NXT has reigned over the Black and Gold brand for more than two years as the flagship star and has won the NXT Championship and NXT North American Championship in the process. Carmelo recently battled The American Nightmare on his first night on Friday Night Smackdown and took him to the limits. So there is a huge possibility that Hayes could be the one to dethrone Cody Rhodes and rise to main event status as the new Undisputed WWE Champion.
