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, many believed that his rivalry with Cody Rhodes will persist indefinitely. Now it appears Rhodes and Rollins might become friends in the future after Rollins made a grand gesture.
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.
The two would revisit their rivalry 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 with Ariel Helwani on BT Sport, Cody Rhodes revealed that Rollins had made an unexpected gesture on his birthday, which might eventually lead to them becoming friends in the future.
“Newcastle was a great vibe, and, you know, it’s one of those birthdays where you kinda want less attention on the birthday. But it was very nice. I came back, and someone who has no reason to like me and we don’t necessarily get along, that being our World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, had a cake provided for me from the production team. I got to blow the candles out, and I made a wish, the whole deal. So, it was nice.[A bit of a swerve there with Seth being the one to provide it] Yeah, you know, I think, I don’t know. Maybe we’ll end up growing to be friends at some point. We’ve got daughters. I love Becky [Lynch], I do. I just Seth just (…) But a great, great wrestler, [a] big-time superstar.”
Cody Rhodes defeated Dominik Mysterio at the Money In The Bank Premium Live Event while Seth Rollins retained his World Heavyweight Championship against Finn Balor at the event. We’ll have to see whether the two will end up becoming friends in the end.
