Cody Rhodes vs Roman Reigns III: The Inevitable WWE Showdown

Cody Rhodes ascended to the top of sports and entertainment at WrestleMania 40 by defeating the previously dominant champion, Roman Reigns, to win the Undisputed WWE Championship in one of the most memorable nights in the company’s history.

Since then, Cody Rhodes has embarked on a mission to establish himself as a fighting champion. He is now striving to surpass the credibility of Roman Reigns’ impressive 1,316-day title reign. While Roman Reigns has been absent from WWE programming ever since.

With so much history between the two superstars and considering the events that happened at WrestleMania 40, here are the three reasons that Cody Rhodes vs Roman Reigns III is an inevitable showdown for the ages:

1. The Tribal Chief’s redemption

Cody Rhodes handed the biggest loss of Roman Reigns’ WWE career when he was defeated at WrestleMania 40, and in the process, his staggering 1,316-day reign as the champion came to its conclusion.

Since then, he has been absent from WWE television programming. Moreover, it is expected that upon his return, he will only be motivated by the desire to gain redemption and reclaim the top spot from Cody Rhodes, making their third encounter inevitable.

2. Battle of Supremacy

The beginning of the Roman Reigns Cody Rhodes rivalry saw The Tribal Chief defeat them in their first encounter at WrestleMania 39. However, Cody got his redemption and scored a victory over Reigns to become the new Undisputed WWE champion a year later at WrestleMania 40 to ‘Finish The Story.’

This puts both men at wins over each other at major WWE stages. In the battle of supremacy, a rubber match between Rhodes and Reigns could solidify the better competitor and top guy in WWE and put an end to their rivalry once and for all.

3. A blockbuster for any WWE PLE

As seen, the feud and two blockbuster showdowns between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes have proven to be a money-making rivalry for WWE in the modern era while also solidifying them as each other’s storied foes for the ages to come.

Moreover, the numbers generated for WWE in terms of viewership, social media, merchandise, and other factors prove the credibility of their showdown. In an attempt to once again capitalize on that business, it makes perfect sense for WWE to book one more dance between Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns at a major WWE PLE.
