Cody Rhodes’ stock only continued to rise since his injury return at the Royal Rumble back in January this year. Cody Rhodes is also set to main event night 2 of WrestleMania 39, but it seems Becky Lynch questions whether Cody Rhodes should be in the main event instead of her husband Seth Rollins.

In the main event of WrestleMania 39 night 2, The American Nightmare is set to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. In the weeks leading up to the match, Cody Rhodes had been booked as an equal to The Tribal Chief.

Many fans just want Cody Rhodes to finish the story and dethrone Roman Reigns at the Showcase of the Immortals. After all, Roman Reigns has been a champion for almost 1000 days at this point.

While speaking on Know Mercy with Stephen A Smith, Becky Lynch was asked to share her thoughts regarding the upcoming main event. The Man made it clear that she whether Cody Rhodes should be in the main event instead of her husband Seth Rollins.


“I think it’s going to be a great match. Roman has had an incredible run. Cody is in his infancy in this run. It’ll be interesting to see what happens. Cody has had a lot of history with my husband. Main event of WrestleMania. It’s going to be big.

I don’t know that Cody is ready for it yet. I wonder if it should have been Seth Rollins in that spot. I wonder if he should have been walking out (in the main event). After everything that he’s done for the past several years. His whole career. He’s been carrying this company on his back. Cody walked away, came back, is getting it all. Maybe that should have been Seth Rollins.

That’s not love, that’s an objective opinion. 52 weeks a year, the family has been making all the town. For the first half of that, I was main eventing all the shows. The second half of that, he was main eventing. Makes every town, is on every Raw, banger after banger after banger, to quote another famous Irishman Sheamus, shout out, love you.

The Hell in a Cell match they had, Cody and Seth, incredible. He’s been the pillar of this company for a long time. He’s facing Logan Paul and he’s going to knock him on his ass this weekend and that’s going to be wonderful and spectacular.

I don’t want to follow him because he always steals the show. Didn’t steal the show last year. Last year was Cody and Seth, and they had to follow me, and I think that was a little tricky for them. He’s going to have a banger. The fact is, that man has been the face of the company for a long time without getting the credit he deserves. I’m saying, I think he should be the main event.”

It remains to be seen how WrestleMania 39 plays out for Cody Rhodes. He has the biggest match of his career ahead of him against Roman Reigns, and he is not lacking in confidence ahead of the big match.

Do you think Cody Rhodes win the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania? Should Seth Rollins have been in Cody Rhodes’ place instead? Sound off in the comments!
