In an electrifying and unprecedented turn of events on WWE RAW, Cody Rhodes, the American Nightmare, took center stage with a jaw-dropping promo that has sent shockwaves through the WWE Universe. Rhodes dropped a bombshell that hints at the conclusion of the Roman Reigns-led Bloodline storyline, signaling a transformative phase in WWE’s intricate narrative tapestry.
The seed for this narrative shift was planted by Paul Heyman’s cryptic remark at the post-SummerSlam 2023 press conference, where he enigmatically stated that they were in the “third innings” of their ongoing saga. This left fans speculating about the duration and direction of this epic tale. However, Cody Rhodes took the WWE Universe by surprise, boldly asserting that they had moved beyond the “third innings,” implying that the final chapters of this saga may soon be written.
The rumor mill is ablaze with talk that Cody Rhodes is not only the man to potentially conclude Roman Reigns’ historic title reign but also the one who will do it on the grandest stage of them all – WrestleMania 40, set to take place in Philadelphia next year. The prospect of this colossal showdown is nothing short of wrestling lore in the making.
Rhodes’ promo, however, was more than just words. It might serve as a prelude to his highly-anticipated and much-speculated second showdown with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. Moreover, his remarks could also be a subtle tease about his rumored move to WWE SmackDown as a replacement for the missing-in-action Jey Uso. This possible shift on the chessboard of WWE Superstars is sure to raise the stakes and deepen the intrigue surrounding the ongoing saga.

But the storyline doesn’t conclude with Rhodes’ promo; it takes a surprising twist. For the second consecutive week, Cody Rhodes found himself at the mercy of an unexpected alliance comprising Finn Balor, Damian Priest, Dominik Mysterio, and JD McDonagh. Just when Rhodes seemed to be facing an insurmountable challenge, salvation arrived in the form of Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Jey Uso. The implications of this dramatic development are tantalizing, leaving fans wondering what twists and turns lie ahead for Roman Reigns and the Bloodline.
Speaking of Roman Reigns, the enigmatic Tribal Chief has been conspicuously absent from WWE SmackDown since August, when he was last seen being brutalized by Jey Uso during an intense in-ring brawl. The question on everyone’s mind is whether Cody Rhodes’ explosive promo on WWE RAW will prompt the return of the Tribal Chief to WWE SmackDown. Could Roman Reigns, spurred by the challenge and taunts, be poised to make his triumphant televised return after Fastlane, scheduled for October 7, 2023? The wrestling world holds its collective breath, eager to witness the next chapter in this gripping saga.
The storylines continue to evolve, and the WWE Universe is on the edge of their seats, eager to witness the dramatic twists and turns that lie ahead. One thing is certain: the world of professional wrestling is in for an epic and transformative narrative that will be remembered for years to come.
