Seth Rollins has achieved great success during his WWE career, and his popularity only continues to grow. He excels in every role he is given and this is particularly evident in his current character. Additionally, it appears that his rivalry with Cody Rhodes will persist indefinitely. In fact, it seems Cody Rhodes almost got into a fist fight with Rollins backstage in WWE.

Upon his return to WWE at WrestleMania 38, Cody Rhodes quickly engaged in a heated feud with Seth Rollins. Their three encounters were highly entertaining, with Rhodes coming out on top in each match, defeating Rollins.

In fact, the two would revisit their rivalry once again during the Royal Rumble Premium Live Event. Rhodes and Rollins faced each other in the match before Logan Paul ended up eliminating Seth Rollins.

While speaking on the Dan LeBatard Show, Cody Rhodes was asked if there were ever any tensions backstage that nearly led to a fight. Rhodes revealed that he almost got into a fist fight with Rollins backstage in WWE.


I almost would say that I like less people than I dislike in terms of the backstage setting. The competition that exists in wrestling, you see that suspension of disbelief on-screen, but backstage it is very real in terms of the competition, who is going to be on top. For example, who is going to headline WrestleMania. This year, being Roman Reigns and myself, it doesn’t garner a lot of friends. Seth Rollins is the closest I’ve ever had to backstage turning into a fist fight in front of all of our peers and upper management. It didn’t happen. Him and I absolutely can’t stand one another, I’d probably try and rip his eyes out

Cody Rhodes will be challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 39. As for Seth Rollins, he will be facing off against Logan Paul at the event. We’ll have to see how the matches will turn out.
