According to WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page, 2023 Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes should dethrone Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.
Rhodes won the 2023 Royal Rumble after coming out at number 30 to secure his spot at WrestleMania 39. At the Show of Shows, he will face Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The wrestling world is divided over whether The American Nightmare should be the one to finally dethrone The Tribal Chief. The legendary Diamond Dallas Page had his say on the matter.
While speaking to Sportskeeda Wrestling Senior Journalist Bill Apter in an exclusive interview, DDP mentioned that dethroning Reigns would be best for Rhodes because fans want to see him win to fulfill the legacy of his father, Dusty Rhodes, and the entire Rhodes family.
“People want to see him win. Not just for him, for his dad [Dusty Rhodes], for his family, and for his legacy. It’s the best personal angle that wrestling has had in years, and it’s not just a one-off. It could go multiple ways. So I always love to see how it shakes out; that’s what I love to watch. I don’t want to know anything. I want to come in there like a fan and see what shakes out,” Page said. [11:11 – 11:56]
