John Cena, a 16-time World Champion, has not just etched his name in the annals of WWE history, but he's also carved a niche for himself in the glamourous world of Hollywood. His recent projects such as "Peacemaker," "Fast X," and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem" stand as testament to his burgeoning acting career.

As his screen-time in the wrestling arena diminishes, Cena's star continues to rise on the silver screen. Cody Rhodes, on the other hand, is a dynamic talent making waves in WWE, especially since his much-anticipated return in 2022.

His meteoric rise led him to headline WrestleMania in a match against the formidable Roman Reigns. However, despite his achievements, the top WWE prize still eludes him. During a candid Reddit AMA, a fan quizzed Rhodes on his plans to take on Cena in the ring.

The fan's reminiscence about a quirky Cody Rhodes' t-shirt bearing the slogan, "Everybody loves Cody, Cody loves everybody," painted a familiar backdrop for WWE enthusiasts. The t-shirt had inadvertently become a treasured possession for the fan's brother until it was unfortunately stained with blood.

It was within this context that the fan posed the question, setting the stage for an eagerly awaited response.

Rhodes, in his reply, didn't leave fans hanging. He mentioned how he had broached the idea of a rematch with Cena.

Rhodes' humility and respect for Cena shone through when he remarked, "If not though, I’m blessed to have been under his learning tree and shared a ring with him in the past." For ardent followers of WWE, the Cena-Rhodes rivalry is not a new narrative.

Their wrestling sagas spanned from 2008 to 2015, where they faced off as both allies and adversaries. The most recent clash was on April 6th, 2015 during Monday Night Raw. In this intense matchup, Cena faced off against Rhodes, who donned his "Stardust" persona.

Rhodes, despite his valiant effort, was defeated by Cena in a United States Championship Open Challenge match. As fans yearn for another showdown, only time will tell if these two giants will collide once more in the wrestling ring.
