WWE WrestleMania 40 Sunday delivered flurry of surprises, captivating fans with an electrifying spectacle from start to finish. Yet, the pinnacle moment arrived at the event’s climax, as Cody Rhodes emerged triumphant over Roman Reigns, seizing the spotlight with his remarkable victory. Interestingly, it appears that many WWE talents were kept in the dark about these unexpected twists.

The grand finale of WrestleMania 40 showcased the highly anticipated showdown between Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns, vying for the coveted Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. With the “Bloodline Rules” stipulation heightening the stakes, the stage was set for an epic confrontation, presenting a formidable challenge for the American Nightmare.

In a jaw-dropping twist of fate, Cody Rhodes defied all odds, clinching a miraculous win with timely assistance from unexpected allies such as John Cena, The Undertaker, and others. This monumental triumph marked a historic milestone in Rhodes’ illustrious career, cementing his legacy as the new Undisputed Universal Champion.

According to Fightful Select’s paywall, the element of surprise was not universally known among those backstage or involved in the production of WrestleMania 40’s main event. However, key producers were privy to the planned surprises, while certain individuals within the company were aware of the intended heavy interference during the match.


“Not everyone backstage or in production knew about the surprises in the main event, but main producers did. There were several within the company that knew that heavy interference was planned.”

Additionally, the reunion of John Cena and Randy Orton during WrestleMania 40 added another layer of nostalgia and excitement to the event. Indeed, this year’s WrestleMania will be remembered as one of the most historic in recent memory, thanks to these unforgettable moments.

The secrecy surrounding the appearances of Cena, Orton, and other surprise guests raises eyebrows, prompting speculation about the deliberate efforts to keep talent in the dark.
