Cody Rhodes seems more than prepared for the biggest fight of his life
It goes without saying that Rhodes is one of the best wrestlers on WWE’s roster today. Judging by the incredible feat of strength he displayed in Denver, it looks like he is in the best shape of his career. Braun Strowman currently weighs a whopping 385 pounds and there aren’t many on the WWE roster who can lift him up on their shoulders, that too with ease.
Ahead of the mega event, Rhodes is quite confident that he will defeat Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 to become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. He stated that on April 2, when everything is said and done, Reigns’ historic title reign will end.
“Mr Heyman talking about acknowledging Roman Reigns, I acknowledge you damn it. You need to acknowledge me. I am not perfect but my time since I came back to the WWE has been perfect. I am undefeated. I grew up, thank God, no crown, no chip, no master sword, no Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. On April 2nd when the Sun goes down on Hollywood it is going down on Roman Reigns’ generational run.” [H/T Hindustan Times]
Cody Rhodes is set to take on Roman Reigns’ close aide and The Bloodline’s Enforcer, Solo Sikoa on the upcoming episode of RAW. With the latter also being undefeated on the main roster, it promises to be a classic match.
