Cody Rhodes, a prominent figure in WWE, recently shared his thoughts on the potential WrestleMania 40 lineup during an interview on Busted Open Radio. As the WWE Survivor Series: WarGames approaches, speculation is rife about who will headline the event, with Rhodes and Roman Reigns being the likely contenders.

Rhodes addressed rumors about The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, possibly facing Reigns at WrestleMania 40. The Rock had hinted on The Pat McAfee Show about a potential match with Reigns, initially planned for WrestleMania 39 but later postponed.

Wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer has since reported that a showdown between Rhodes and Reigns is the current plan for next year's event. In his interview, Rhodes expressed immense respect for The Rock, acknowledging his significant contributions to sports entertainment and his status as a Hollywood superstar.

"The Rock's achievements in the industry set a benchmark for aspiring wrestlers," Rhodes stated. He emphasized his determination to secure his spot at WrestleMania, regardless of any potential competition from The Rock or other top-tier wrestlers like LA Knight and Sami Zayn.

Rhodes humorously commented on Dave Lagreca's strong support for him headlining WrestleMania 40 against Reigns, joking about a possible jinx. Despite the speculation, Rhodes remains focused on his goal, stating, "I'm not flinching.

If Rock's part of WrestleMania 40, that would be outstanding. He should be, it's The Rock, but I don't think he'll be in my spot." Adding a personal touch, Rhodes mentioned having a bottle of Teremana, The Rock's brand of tequila, on his bus and expressed hope that The Rock would appear on Busted Open Radio in the future.

As the WWE universe eagerly anticipates the Survivor Series: WarGames, the potential lineup for WrestleMania 40 continues to be a trending topic. Fans are speculating whether it will be Rhodes or The Rock who will face Reigns in what promises to be an epic showdown.

With Rhodes's determination and respect for his potential competitors, the stage is set for a memorable event in the world of wrestling entertainment.
