Fresh off his win at Money In The Bank, Cody Rhodes has discussed the World Heavyweight Championship and shared what it will take to finish his story.
The American Nightmare was a hot favorite to end the reign of Roman Reigns by becoming Undisputed WWE Universal Champion at WrestleMania 39, taking home the Championship his father, Dusty, had never won.
But despite losing to Reigns and a grueling rivalry with Brock Lesnar, the grandson of a plumber has not given up on winning the WWE Championship.
Speaking at the Money In The Bank post-event press conference, Rhodes was asked if winning the World Heavyweight would mean “finishing the story” allowing Rhodes to share his thoughts on Raw’s main Championship.
“I don’t want to be a downer, but no,”
“Now, winning the World Heavyweight Championship would be outstanding, would be amazing.
It is the title on the flagship show Monday Night RAW. Absolutely matters, is important, and what Seth is doing with it is a special thing, and you’re going to see that title will mean far more in five minutes and then in 10 minutes. Every second it gains equity.
But finishing the story was always about the title that my dad didn’t get.”
The former IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion would go on to inform the worlds media about an upcoming film looking at his WWE journey, before sharing what it will take for the comeback story to end.
“I’m not going to spoil anything because Peacock people will murder me, but you’ll probably hear some news about my documentary at some point soon finally because these people have been filming me for gosh knows how long.
And it’s covered in there a lot as far as that’s what the story was. He really did hold it and he held it in the Garden and it ate me up that he never got it. That’s finishing the story.”
“The World Heavyweight Championship is a whole other story, it is. And again, very special, the main title on Monday Night RAW. I don’t look down on it in any way.”
Dominik has spent the last few weeks tormenting Rhodes with cheap shots, which led to their battle in front of an electric London crowd.
The Two-Time Intercontinental Champion secured the win despite outside interreference from The Judgment Day’s Rhea Ripley.
