WrestleMania 40 saw the Island of Relevancy crumble to pieces as Cody Rhodes dethroned the most dominant champion of the modern era, Roman Reigns, and captured the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship to finish the story.

While The Tribal Chief has taken a leave of absence since his historic reign came to an end, Cody Rhodes has been at the forefront of taking charge of WWE’s new era under the leadership of WWE CCO Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

However, an interesting alteration regarding Rhodes’ title run has been heard on WWE television programming and now has been made official. Ever since Cody became champion, he has been referred to only as the Undisputed WWE champion, with the company omitting the word ‘Universal’ from his title reign.

Now, the change has been made permanent as Cody Rhodes is now acknowledged only as the Undisputed WWE champion on their official website, dropping the term Universal from the same and possibly cementing the change to mark the end of the Roman Reigns era that began with his win back in 2020.


Cody Rhodes’ first challenger will be determined this week on SmackDown when LA Knight and AJ Styles collide against each other in a WrestleMania 40 rematch with the winner moving to WWE Backlash France to face The American Nightmare for his championship, marking his first title defense after finishing his story.
