Cody Rhodes won the Royal Rumble and all signs pointed towards him headlining WrestleMania 40 against Roman Reigns. However, WWE had other plans as The Rock took his spot and now fans are demanding refunds on Cody Rhodes merchandise.

The conclusion of the recent WWE SmackDown episode sparked division as The Rock confronted Roman Reigns. This happened after Cody Rhodes brought the Hollywood megastar out, seemingly relinquishing his WrestleMania 40 title shot.

Fans are upset with this decision, expressing disappointment that WWE’s top babyface had to play second fiddle to a part-timer. This is despite WWE having good reason for the match taking place at WrestleMania 40.

WWE started selling new merchandise for The Rock following his WWE return. Quite a few disgruntled fans demanded refunds of their Cody Rhodes merchandise, which led to a lot of automated responses from the WWE Shop.


The Rock’s WrestleMania 40 plans were also inevitable despite potential injuries. Cody Rhodes’ WrestleMania 40 direction has also been revealed. We will have to wait and see how WrestleMania 40 will turn out, considering so many changes took place.
