Cody Rhodes was immediately presented as a major star after returning to WWE at WrestleMania 38 and in just a year’s time, he went on to main event WrestleMania 39 this year. However, he didn’t accomplish what fans wanted and now it Rhodes didn’t want to feel like a loser after losing to Roman Reigns.

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 on the Dale Jr Download, Cody Rhodes talked about his relationship with Bruce Prichard. Rhodes then noted that after his loss to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39, he did not want to feel like a loser and walk down the ‘loser’s lane,’ which was the side ramp.


“When I lost at WrestleMania, I was adamant that I was walking up the ramp. I’m not going side ramp or ‘losers lane.’ It’s the end of the show, 80,000 people, I want to look them in the eye, say sorry or ‘we’re going to get him eventually.’ When I walked up there, I wasn’t sure I was ready to walk into Gorilla. I took a second and [Bruce] came out the curtain. He was just him and I. We had a nice moment and I’ll never forget it. In my mind, I was like, ‘I need to reverse this situation and we have this moment again.’ Bruce has been a big part of my career that I didn’t realize was a big part of my career until I got older.”

We will have to wait and see what WWE has planned for Cody Rhodes, as fans want to see him eventually beat Roman Reigns for the title. After all, WWE is clearly seeing great things in The American Nightmare.
