Seth Rollins has established himself as one of the most dependable Superstars in all of WWE. He has been part of numerous top feuds over the years. Cody Rhodes also explained why he chose Rollins as his WrestleMania 38 opponent recently.

Prior to WrestleMania 38, Seth Rollins went through a lot of drama in order to get a match at the Show of Shows. Rollins even teased facing off against numerous legends and more.

During WrestleMania 38 Night 1, Cody Rhodes made his return to the company after 6 years. He was revealed to be Rollins’ opponent and ended up defeating him in a solid match.

While speaking on The Ringer Wrestling Show after his WWE return, Cody Rhodes talked about squaring off against Seth Rollins. The American Nightmare went on to explain why he picked Rhodes as his WrestleMania 38 opponent as well.


“[Could have been] Nobody else. Seth walked into the ring in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in his first live event loop ever coming off of Florida Championship Wrestling and it was against me. Dayton, Ohio, at the Nutter Center, his first dark match on television and it was against me. The Shield vs. The Rhodes, which I blocked those matches out of my head and then realized, ‘Man, these were special and something,’ and it was him then. I can honestly say that it needed to be Seth Rollins.

And I am not insulting Seth Rollins, I heard so much about ‘Dusty’s kids’ at NXT to the point where [phew], ‘What about his real kids? What about his actual kids?’ And again slow learner, maybe it took me a little while but to be able to walk out there and earn his respect as he earned mine once, and this is a different man now. This guy has been to the top of the mountain. It couldn’t have been anyone else.”

Now that Cody Rhodes is back in WWE, it remains to be seen whether he will find a lot of success or not as fans are excited to see him back.
