Ever since Roman Reigns won the WWE Championship a couple of years ago, he has been unstoppable. He has defeated every opponent in the ring.

Currently, Reigns is in the middle of one of the greatest title reigns in WWE history which is why a lot of Superstars want to be the one to end it. Even Cody Rhodes indicated that he wants to win the WWE Championship due to its rich history. However, Seth Rollins feels differently about the title. During an appearance on the Rich Eisen Show, Rollins explained why Cody Rhodes should face him at WrestleMania 40.

“I said, Cody Rhodes, come take a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. I understand Cody Rhodes, one of the top performers in WWE, WWE. He’s got to finish the story. He’s got the story in mind. He wants the WWE championship. It’s a title that his father, the late great American Dream Dusty Rhodes, has never won. Almost won it, had it ripped away. He never won it. He wants to fulfill that destiny. I understand that, but that title don’t mean what it once did.

Rollins further claimed that Roman Reigns has ruined the WWE Championship and that’s why the World Heavyweight Championship is the most prestigious title in the industry.


Roman Reigns has ruined that title. This is the championship in WWE right here. This is the most prestigious title in our entire industry. I’ve put in the work over the past year to make it that way. And I want to test myself against the best at WrestleMania and the best is the winner of the Royal Rumble now two years in a row, Cody Rhodes. That’s what I want.”

Rollins further explained how Reigns has demeaned the WWE Championship by not showing up at every show in every city.

“Well, look, Roman Reigns… working on his own schedule all, and in his mind, he thinks that makes the title bigger and maybe at a time, that was the truth. But the problem is, Roman Reigns isn’t present, which means his title isn’t present, which means you don’t have a crack at it, which means there’s a glass ceiling, which means this the title that he holds isn’t gonna be in every town, in every city. It’s not there.

It’s the Hollywood title it’s as close to a prop, as you can call it and I don’t want to demean it, because I’ve been the World Heavyweight champion, that WWE champion and when I was, I took it everywhere. I defended it all over the place. I made sure that it was present. I made sure that it was on Raw. It was on SmackDown. I made sure that other people had an opportunity at that title.

Rollins also mentioned how he has built the WWE Championship up from scratch.

“He has kind of demeaned the title so much that it just don’t mean what this one means, man. I built this one up from nothing, from scratch. This didn’t exist a year ago. Didn’t exist a year ago, and now I’m walking into WrestleMania, biggest champion in the biz.”

With The Rock seemingly taking Cody’s spot at WrestleMania against Roman Reigns, it’s looking likely that the American Nightmare will face Rollins at WrestleMania 40.
