Cody Rhodes came back to WWE at WrestleMania 38 last year and wasted no time in making an impact after defeating Seth Rollins in his return match. Rhodes has been on a roll since his return and fans continue to love him no matter what. Now it appears Rhodes stated that the WWE World Heavyweight Title is not important to his ‘Finish the story’ theme.

Cody Rhodes parted ways with WWE back in 2016 and he spent the next 6 years establishing himself as a main event level talent in various promotions, honing his craft everywhere.

Many believed Cody Rhodes’ goal after returning to WWE was to ‘finish the story’ and win the WWE Championship – something that his father Dusty Rhodes never could. However, Rhodes’ goal is yet to be fulfilled after he lost to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.

While speaking to Fightful, Cody Rhodes was asked whether winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship would ‘finish the story.’ While Rhodes stated that the title is important in general, it has no importance when it comes to him finishing the story.


I don’t think that was ever something in terms of on the table because it was very clear to every body, new people, young infrastructure people, all the way up to the top brass, what my story and goal when returning was. I’m talking about the physical hardware of the belt. Anytime a belt is new and shows up, every superstar, we all want it. Just now, I signed a replica one at an appearance. ‘Man, it’s very nice.’ We all have gold fever for these titles. The way it came out of that press conference made it sound non-important. That’s as important of a title as it can possibly be, it’s just not related to the ‘finish the story’ theme.

We will have to wait and see what WWE has planned for Cody Rhodes, as he defeated Brock Lesnar at WWE SummerSlam. Perhaps a rematch with Roman Reigns will finally help him finish the story next year.

What’s your view on this story? Do you think Cody Rhodes will be able to finish the story? Let us know in the comments!
