The Undertaker, an iconic figure in WWE with over 30 years of experience, recently revealed his heartfelt reaction to the uncertain WrestleMania plans surrounding Cody Rhodes.
In the ever-evolving landscape of WrestleMania, this year’s Road to WrestleMania has been marked by numerous changes, from CM Punk’s injury to rumors of The Rock potentially stepping in for Cody Rhodes in a match against Roman Reigns.
During the February 2 episode of WWE SmackDown, Rhodes had initially indicated to Reigns that he wouldn’t be confronting him at WrestleMania, leading to a tense staredown between The Rock and Reigns.
Reflecting on this moment on the Six Feet Under Podcast, Undertaker shared his genuine disappointment when it seemed Cody wouldn’t be pursuing the storyline further. “I wanted to hear Cody’s promo. It was great. It was so good, and I was so invested,” he expressed. “When he said, ‘… just not at WrestleMania,’ my freaking heart sunk into my stomach because I knew at that moment what was about to happen.”
Acknowledging the potential draw of a Rock versus Reigns match, Undertaker emphasized his empathy for Cody’s position, noting similarities to situations he had faced in his own career. “For Cody to go out and to deliver the promo that he delivered last night, I felt for him. He did it like a champ. He did it so professionally,” Undertaker praised.
While suggesting a dream match between Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship, Undertaker recognized the unexpected twists of WrestleMania’s storyline.
Indeed, the Road to WrestleMania took yet another surprising turn during the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff event on February 8, where Rock and Reigns aligned against Cody Rhodes following perceived disrespect toward their shared bloodline.
How do you think the unexpected twists and turns in the WrestleMania storyline, particularly involving Cody Rhodes, impact the overall anticipation and excitement leading up to the event? How might these developments influence fan expectations and perceptions of the matches? Leave me a comment below.
