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 he is still Fighting for a Roman Reigns rematch.

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 with Sports Illustrated, The American Nightmare talked about an eventual rematch with The Tribal Chief and made it clear he is still fighting to make it a reality.


I know what I want, I know what I’m working to attain. I had other challenges before. People didn’t think I’d survive Stardust, or that a non-WWE show could sell 10,000 tickets.

There have been plenty of times when people bet against me. Getting back, this is the biggest obstacle yet.

That’s my goal: get back. And that’s what I’m fighting to do.”

We will have to wait and see what WWE has planned for Cody Rhodes, now that he has toppled The Beast Incarnate. After all, WWE is clearly seeing great things in The American Nightmare.
