Cody Rhodes is experiencing life at the top of WWE.
Cody Rhodes returned to WWE in spectacular fashion at WrestleMania 38 when he emerged as the mystery opponent for Seth Rollins. Returning to a rapturous reception, The American Nightmare was a man re-born after leaving the company in 2016 after growing unhappy with his opportunities there.
A stint as an Executive Vice President and the chance to live forever came for Rhodes during his time away from WWE but now he’s back, he’s a man – almost – on top of the pile in the company
Speaking on The Dale Jr. Download, Cody Rhodes reflected on his second run in WWE and said he’s now living something only his heroes ever got a taste of:
“There’s a ton of talent right now. The business is legit booming, but I feel this run has exceeded my expectations in every way, just because I’m experiencing things that only my heroes ever got to experience.
“I’m in on the high-level discussions. I’m hearing things that I always wanted to be. Again, I wanted to be the starting quarterback. That’s what I wanted to be, and being in a position where you’re real close to that, whereas I say Roman is the starting quarterback, he really is. But where you’re right there and you’re able to offer something so unique and so different. The run has really exceeded my expectations, so much so that I have the thought if it ends tomorrow, thank gosh I had it. Unbelievable.
“I tell [the fans] every night, ‘I love you guys. Thank you.’ I have just a different outlook and different perspective. I’m of the thought it will end tomorrow always, and it’s slightly getting bigger and bigger.”
Will Cody Rhodes finish his story?
Many expected Cody Rhodes to claim the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 but The Tribal Chief had other ideas. Rhodes has made no secret that he is after the championship that has eluded every member of his illustrious wrestling family and he still remains the favourite to be the one to finally end the historic reign of Roman Reigns, possibly even in a rematch at WrestleMania 40.
