Cody Rhodes was immediately booked as a major star after returning to WWE at WrestleMania 38 and in just a span of one year, he went on to main event WrestleMania 39 this year. However, he didn’t accomplish what fans wanted and now it appears Rhodes believes main eventing WrestleMania is a sickness.

The American Nightmare challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 39 Sunday. Fans all over the world believed Rhodes would finally end Roman Reigns’ run as the champion.

However, that was not the case as Roman Reigns won the match after several interferences from The Bloodline. Cody Rhodes’ loss angered many fans and pro wrestlers alike.

While speaking to Jimmy Traina on the SI Media podcast, Cody Rhodes stated that he believes main eventing WrestleMania is a sickness.


And I had to mentally prepare for the amount of, ‘Oh my gosh, but you main-evented WrestleMania.’ ‘Oh dude, you main-evented WrestleMania.’ I kept hearing, ‘You already won.’ And even some of my close friends, I wanted to just jab right in the jaw,” Rhodes admitted. “Like, no. All I found out from main-eventing a WrestleMania is I want to do it again and I have to win. Like it’s a sickness, you know? Like, you got this high and for it to go like that, I can’t accept it. I can’t allow it.

We will have to wait and see whether The American Nightmare will be able to topple The Beast Incarnate at the WWE SummerSlam Premium Live Event next month, as the path to Roman Reigns seems distant right now.
