In a dramatic turn of events leading up to WWE WrestleMania 40, Cody Rhodes has set his sights on the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, currently held by Roman Reigns. Rhodes, who has twice emerged victorious in the Royal Rumble, is poised to possibly fulfill his long-cherished dream on wrestling's most illustrious stage.
However, wrestling icon Mickie James expressed skepticism during a conversation on "Busted Open Radio," suggesting that WrestleMania might not be the setting where Rhodes concludes his much-anticipated narrative. James articulated her doubts by highlighting the complex dynamics involving The Bloodline, a formidable faction within WWE, known for its deep familial bonds.
"I don't think Cody is going to finish his story. Not at WrestleMania anyway," she stated, emphasizing the intricate relationship dynamics at play. The involvement of The Bloodline, particularly in last year's WrestleMania, where they thwarted Rhodes' efforts, lends credence to James' speculation about the potential outcome of this year's showdown.
The Rock's Unexpected Role
The stage for this year's WrestleMania was dramatically altered with the unforeseen comeback of WWE icon Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, adding an electrifying twist to the ongoing saga. His appearance was not merely a cameo; The Rock confronted Cody Rhodes in a moment that sent shockwaves through the WWE Universe.
Furthermore, his apparent siding with Roman Reigns introduced a new layer of complexity to the narrative, intertwining the fates of these three superstars in an intricate dance of alliances and rivalries. As the wrestling community buzzes with anticipation, the question of whether Rhodes can dethrone Reigns and claim the championship remains a topic of intense speculation.
With the shadow of The Bloodline looming large and the unpredictable nature of WWE storylines, WrestleMania 40 is poised to be a battleground where dreams, rivalries, and family loyalties collide. Whether Rhodes will emerge victorious or if unforeseen alliances will dictate the outcome, one thing is certain: the road to WrestleMania is fraught with intrigue and suspense, promising an event that will captivate wrestling fans around the globe.
