Cody Rhodes’ highly-anticipated in-ring return from injury took place during the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble. As the 30th entrant, he ignited the crowd with a fierce brawl against Seth Rollins, sending excitement through the arena. The American Nightmare’s comeback immediately elevated the intensity of the match.

Cody Rhodes ultimately eliminated GUNTHER in order to punch his ticket for the Grandest Stage of them all – making fans happy all around the world. He took an extra moment before pointing at the WrestleMania sign to really make it count.


While speaking with WWE Digital Exclusive after winning the Royal Rumble match, Rhodes revealed that he popped his eardrums during the match.

“Don’t tell anyone, don’t put it on a medical report, but I popped my eardrums. So, what a night not to hear that much. But I could hear them loud enough and it’s a beautiful moment,.”

It doesn’t sound like Cody Rhodes’ popped eardrums will be much of an issue. He participated in the press conference directly after the event, and seemed jovial as he spoke with the press.

It appears that Cody Rhodes will challenge Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. The bigger question is whether he will challenge the Tribal Chief for both of his titles, or just the one that always alluded his family. After all, many reports have suggested he could be the one to dethrone Roman Reigns once and for all.
