In the dynamic and ever-evolving world of WWE, the question of who will face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 has been a topic of heated discussion. The wrestling community has recently rallied around Cody Rhodes, especially after his stepping aside on last week's SmackDown, which led to a potential showdown between The Rock and Roman Reigns.
This development has sparked the #WeWantCody movement, a sentiment now acknowledged on WWE programming. The climax of this drama is anticipated to unfold at tonight's WrestleMania kickoff press event in Las Vegas, where the main event of WrestleMania 40 is expected to be confirmed.
Amidst this whirlwind of speculation, WWE star LA Knight shared his thoughts on the situation during the Wes & Walker show. Knight, known for his candid and straightforward persona, expressed a sense of indifference regarding whether it's Cody Rhodes or The Rock who gets the nod to face Reigns.
"Doesn't really make a difference to me," Knight stated, emphasizing that his focus remains unaffected as he is not directly involved in this storyline.
Knight Praises The Rock's Appeal
Knight acknowledged the star power and global appeal of The Rock, highlighting the potential benefits of having a figure of his stature participate in WrestleMania.
"A major movie star, a pop culture icon like The Rock brings brand name recognition, possibly attracting new viewers," Knight noted. He pointed out that while this might not appeal to all, it certainly adds variety to the WWE universe, catering to a diverse audience.
In a world where championship titles are the pinnacle of success, Knight's gaze is fixed on whoever holds the WWE Championship. His stance remains firm: whether it's Cody Rhodes, Roman Reigns, or The Rock holding the title, they are all potential targets for him.
Knight's determination was evident in his participation in the four-way Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match at the Royal Rumble, where Reigns successfully defended his title against Knight, Randy Orton, and AJ Styles.
Adding to the anticipation, The Rock has hinted that tonight's WrestleMania kickoff press event will be a historic moment in WWE history. As fans and enthusiasts eagerly await the announcement, the intrigue surrounding WrestleMania 40 continues to grow, promising an event that will captivate the wrestling world.
