Cody Rhodes remains a major Superstar in WWE and many believe he will main event WrestleMania 40 this year. However, The Rock teasing potential bout with Roman Reigns might have changed those plans. Now, Rhodes has claimed that he is the best man to main event the Show of Shows after Friday Night SmackDown this week.
Cody Rhodes’s WrestleMania status is now uncertain as The Rock’s potential return to the ring could impact his previously assumed role as Roman Reigns’s opponent. This raises questions about Rhodes’s ability to conclude the storyline at the Showcase of The Immortals.
This week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown was truly a night of memorable moments and solid action. After the conclusion of Friday Night SmackDown, The American Nightmare squared off against Shinsuke Nakamura.
Following the bout, Rhodes delivered a passionate promo addressing the WrestleMania 40 main event rumors. Recent reports suggest a potential Triple Threat Match involving Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, and The Rock at The Show of Shows. Acknowledging the rumors, Rhodes made it clear that he is the best man to main event WrestleMania 40.
“I’ve done a few silly things. But all of them were in the efforts to give this city, the town, the community that raised me something to remember. When you’re home, you share things that only you would share at home. Here’s one. There is only one thing that makes me tired of coming home. The only thing that makes me tired when coming home is coming home empty-handed. I think we need to change that. I am not immune to all the news, everything that’s happening, what will happen, what won’t happen. All I can tell you is this. I’m the right man for the job. I’m the best man for the job. I’m heading into the Royal Rumble, I’m gonna go back-to-back, and I’m gonna bring a championship back home to Atlanta.”
Cody Rhodes remains unfazed by the possibility of The Rock taking away his WrestleMania main event spot. It remains to be seen whether The American Nightmare will be able to finish his story this year at WrestleMania 40.
