Roman Reigns is all set to take on Cody Rhodes in the main event of WrestleMania 39’s Night Sunday. In a recent interview, the Tribal Chief spoke about his opponent leaving WWE and returning last year, while also sharing his thoughts on what he and his former Shield member, Seth Rollins, agreed on.

The American Nightmare was away from the WWE for six years before he made his return to the company last year at WrestleMania 38. Since then, Rhodes has been involved in a personal feud with The Visionary that saw him picking up the final victory at Hell In a Cell PLE last year. Unfortunately, he tore his pectoral muscle and was sidelined post the match.

Rhodes made his return from injury as the final entrant during the men’s Royal Rumble match earlier this year. He went on to win the match, booking him in the main event against Roman Reigns this weekend.

While speaking with with ESPN, Reigns talked about his opponent leaving WWE and returning while mentioning what he and Seth Rollins agreed on.


“Me and Seth. This is one of the only things we agree on. We don’t want to be busting our a**es the whole time, building it for what it is and just have some white knight come sweeping in and just take it. I’ve worked too hard year after year, show after show to put this place where it is and here he comes. That’s just not how it works for me.”

The Tribal Chief also showered Rhodes with praise where due on what he had accomplished outside the promotion while calling him out for running away from WWE.

“From my perspective, he ran. Plain and simple. On the other side, he did something very resilient. It’s something that, maybe one of the things that bothers me the most about him. I don’t know if I’d be willing or if I could do it. As a man I don’t like that. I want to feel that I could do anything. I respect that.”

Fans will be eager to see who comes out on top in the highly anticipated match between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes.

With The Usos getting dethroned by Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens as Tag Team Champions, many fans may believe it’s a sign that The Bloodline is deteriorating.

Will Rhodes be able to dethrone the Tribal Chief and become the new Undisputed WWE Universal Champion? The answer will be revealed in the highly anticipated main event at WrestleMania 39’s Sunday.
