Cody Rhodes, the former WWE superstar and current Executive Vice President of All Elite Wrestling (AEW), recently commented on a potential rematch against Roman Reigns following Wrestlemania 39. The comments have sparked much speculation among wrestling fans about what a match between these two talented performers would look like and how it could affect the landscape of professional wrestling.
Rhodes Open to the Idea of a Rematch
In an interview with ESPN, Rhodes was asked about the possibility of facing Reigns again after their first match at WWE Battleground in 2015. Rhodes said he would be open to the idea, but only if it made sense from a storyline perspective. He also praised Reigns’ recent run as the WWE Universal Champion, calling it “phenomenal” and “one of the best things in wrestling right now.”
Implications for the Future of Professional Wrestling
Rhodes’ comments have been met with excitement from fans eager to see these two top stars again go head-to-head. Their first match was a hard-fought battle that saw Reigns come out on top, but Rhodes has since honed his craft in the ring and has become one of the top stars in AEW.
A rematch between these two would not only be a massive draw for fans but could also have significant implications for the future of professional wrestling. Both men are viewed as potential leaders in the industry and have the charisma, talent, and star power to carry a promotion on their backs.
Reigns and Rhodes Cement Their Legacies
Reigns has already proven himself to be a dominant force in WWE, and a rematch against Rhodes would be a chance for him to further cement his legacy as one of the all-time greats. For Rhodes, a victory over Reigns would be a significant milestone in his career and could establish him as a legitimate contender for the top spot in the industry.
Logistical Hurdles to Overcome
Of course, whether or not this rematch will happen remains to be seen. Both men are currently signed to different promotions, and there are likely to be a lot of logistical hurdles to overcome before they can step into the ring together once again.
Anticipation for a Highly-Anticipated Event
Despite these challenges, fans eagerly anticipate the possibility of a rematch between Rhodes and Reigns. Whether it happens at Wrestlemania 39 or some other event, there is no doubt that a match between these two would be one of the most talked-about and highly-anticipated events in professional wrestling history.
