Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins are no stranger to each other. The two have had wrestled each other countless times in the ring. The latest and possibly the last chapter in their epic saga took place at WrestleMania Backlash Sunday, May 8th. The American Nightmare has his sights set on the top of Vince McMahon’s company.

Cody won the match after attempting a rollup, something he took out of Rollins’ own playbook. Cody celebrated his win as a shocked Rollins shouted his heart out at the referee over the count.

The American Nightmare was interviewed backstage following his second straight PPV win over The Monday Night Messiah. Cody praised Rollins for his performance and said that he’s moving forward from the feud and can’t wait to see what’s next for him.


“I said it at the end. I did the generic symbol for I want the belt, I want the title because it’s real. That’s what I want. And to be able to get two on him, I think we can walk away on this one.

“I really think Seth’s an amazing, amazing superstar/wrestler. I absolutely do. I can’t wait to see what he’ll do next. He’s been to the top of the mountain, he’s kicked my face in, just beat me halt to death but not actually beat me.

“So, what he does now… good luck, absolutely good luck. I’m moving forward, I’m moving on. I’m very excited to see what that is, May be the WWE fans, the WWE Universe, pro wresting fans… whatever we’re saying they can tell me, but I’m looking forward to it.”

Cody wants to win the big title in WWE that eluded his father, the late great Dusty Rhodes, for his whole career. We’ll have to wait and see if he succeeds in accomplishing that dream. If anything, he will likely remain a super babyface in the process as WWE continues positioning him in places where he is seemingly a primary face of the company.
