In an interview with Daniel Cormier of ESPN, Roman Reigns spoke about his WrestleMania 39 match with Cody Rhodes. Cody Rhodes started his wrestling career with WWE, but shortly after that, he left the company and moved over to AEW.
A great career was built for him in the AEW as he became the main face of the company. Rhodes has shown that he has a high level of talent and, as a result, is able to attract attention to himself. In Reigns' opinion, it appears to be somewhat unfair since he has been building up a name for himself for such a long time, but Rhodes got an important role just by returning to the company.
Roman Reigns' statement
"It’s going to sound a little weird because, in our heated exchanges, I said some things, and I stand by them. From my perspective, he ran. Plain and simple. On the other side, he did something very resilient.
He did something that, and that’s one of the things that maybe bothers me or concerns me the most about him…I don’t know if I would be willing or if I could do what he did. As a man, I don’t like that.
I want to feel like I can do anything, but he did something that, I don’t know if I would have been willing to do what he did. I respect that. Me and Seth (Rollins), this is one of the only things we agree on, we don’t want to be busting our ass this whole time, building this thing up for what it is, and just have some white knight coming sweeping in and take it from us.
I’ve worked too hard, year after year, show after show, to put this place where it is. Then, here he comes. That’s just not how it works for me,”- Reigns said, as quoted by pwmania.com
