Cody Rhodes has established himself as the face of the global juggernaut, WWE after dethroning Roman Reigns to become the new Undisputed WWE Champion. The Prodigal Son pinned The Tribal Chief in front of a sold-out crowd in Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 7th, 2023 in the main event of the Showcase of Immortals.
