Cody Rhodes Winning At WrestleMania Is “Pivotal” Says Mick Foley
Cody Rhodes has his shot at the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 39 and Mick Foley thinks Cody should win.
The main event of WrestleMania 39 Night Two is finally here. Ever since Cody Rhodes won the Royal Rumble in January, fans have anticipated this showdown against the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Going into this match, a lot of people are making predictions about who should win the match. For Roman Reigns, it’s his third straight WrestleMania defending the Universal Title that he has held for over 900+ days now. One year ago at WrestleMania 38, Reigns added the WWE Title to his collection to become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
Mick Foley is a WWE Hall of Famer that talked about the Roman Reigns-Cody Rhodes matchup with Mick saying that it’s pivotal that Cody leaves as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
As he talked about it on the Foley is Pod podcast, Mick explained that Lex Luger failed to beat Yokozuna for the WWE Title at SummerSlam 1993. Luger won by countout and celebrated it in a big way, but he didn’t become WWE Champion.
“I think it’s pivotal. Again, we’re quoting Jim Cornette. Should we put the Lex Luger comment in context? This was James E Cornette, prior to the SummerSlam where Lex had been heavily, and very well built.”
“The Lex Express, the slam on the USS Intrepid. It was a really good build, and Cornette did a really good interview, I think it was a Torch interview, where you put the guy in a position where if he doesn’t win the title, he looks like a ‘plateful of piss.’ I wouldn’t go so far as to say that’s the way Lex came out of it, but he never regained that momentum.”
Foley continued by talking about how he thinks it is time for Cody Rhodes to win.
“It’s so valuable. In so many ways, succeeding in WWE is an exercise in constantly keeping your head above water. But in some ways, it’s not enough just to survive, there’s a moment in time from which you might never come back from, if they don’t do the right thing. Whereas I don’t think wins and losses are as important as some people do; there is a time for a win. And I think it’s this ‘Mania for Cody.”
