Cody Rhodes Would Support Splitting WWE/Universal Titles
He might not have his hands on them yet, but Cody Rhodes admitted he’d be open to the idea of the two top WWE titles going their separate ways.
It was at WrestleMania 38 when all the marvels were on the line between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. ‘The Head Of The Table’ was successful on that occasion, and the WWE and Universal Championships became one. To this day, nobody has been able to take the titles from ‘The Tribal Chief’.
The next man to get that opportunity is ‘The American Nightmare’ Cody Rhodes, who returned to WWE at the 2023 Royal Rumble, entering at the number 30 spot and winning the contest by lastly eliminating Gunther.
In a discussion on the Bart Winkler Show, Cody Rhodes discussed the possibility of the titles once again being separated out after he’s had his shot at Reigns at WrestleMania 39.
What it will take for the titles to eventually be separated is, this happened in boxing years ago, maybe whoever is coming out of WrestleMania…obviously, I want to say with the most confidence in the world that it’s going to be me, but maybe who leaves WrestleMania, it’s time for perhaps management to step in and make that call so that you never put it on potentially me or potentially Roman Reigns to say, ‘I want this one more than the other.’
Of course, the fan in me, I want my hands on the WWE Championship, its the one that [Dusty Rhodes] never got, but it would take someone telling me, ‘we have to go this way, both brands need a title.’ Once you have them, [Roman Reigns] threw them down in front of me the other day and I felt my heart jump. For real, how sincerely I love these title belts that I’ve never touched. That’s a good time for maybe management to step in. If they did, I’d be all about it.
Cody Rhodes also recently discussed how he once snorted pre-workout before a big match.
