The theme of “finishing the story” has become a significant focus in WWE 2K24, with Cody Rhodes prominently featured on the game’s cover. This theme resonates with many fans who are hopeful that Cody will have the opportunity to conclude his storyline at WrestleMania 40, especially after his unsuccessful attempt to defeat Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 39.

However, one potential obstacle in Cody’s path is the return of The Rock to WWE, which occurred during WWE Raw Day One. The Rock made headlines when he mentioned sitting at the Head of the Table, hinting at a possible confrontation with Roman Reigns.

When asked about The Rock in an interview with Marc Raimondi of ESPN, Cody Rhodes expressed his perspective, stating, “I don’t consider him in my way. Maybe he is, and I’m being naive to it. Maybe he wants to get in, I don’t know. But I don’t consider him in my way.

Cody continued, “Again, The Rock is one of the main reasons we’re here today. Nothing but respect. But also at the same time, I have to have the respect for myself to know where I’d like to go.”


Cody has previously mentioned that he won’t back down, whether it’s The Rock or CM Punk standing in his path.

Fans can look forward to Cody Rhodes and CM Punk facing off on Monday’s WWE Raw, with Ringside News providing live coverage of the show starting at 8 p.m. ET on Monday.
