Cody Rhodes was initially set to headline WrestleMania 40 against Roman Reigns after winning the Royal Rumble. However, WWE has seemingly replaced him with The Rock and now WWE has edited Rhodes from the aforementioned segment as well.

The latest WWE SmackDown episode concluded with tension as The Rock confronted Roman Reigns. Cody Rhodes introduced the Hollywood megastar into the scene, seemingly relinquishing his WrestleMania 40 title shot, causing outrage among fans.

Many fans noticed just how sad and dejected Cody Rhodesl looked during the segment, especially when he was making his way out to the back after The Rock came out.

Interestingly enough, WWE has now re-uploaded the segment but conveniently cut out the part where Cody Rhodes was looking dejected while leaving the ring. Naturally, quite a few fans noticed what WWE was trying to do as well.


Fans also rallied for The Rock to give Cody Rhodes his WrestleMania 40 spot back as well. 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.

What do you think of what WWE just did? Do you feel there’s still a chance Cody Rhodes will be able to finish his story? Let us know in the comments section below!
