The Young Bucks Comment On Cody Rhodes’ SmackDown Reference
Cody Rhodes came face-to-face with Roman Reigns on SmackDown ahead of their match at WrestleMania 39 and what he had to say to The Tribal Chief caught the attention of AEW stars The Young Bucks.
Cody Rhodes made his return to the ring in WWE following a serious muscle tear at the 2023 Royal Rumble where he entered the men’s match at number 30 and picked up the win, booking his place in the first WrestleMania main event of his career.
On SmackDown in Washington D.C., Cody Rhodes confronted Reigns ahead of their monumental match and things quickly got personal.
As Roman Reigns dismissed the rest of The Bloodline so the two men could be alone, he laid down his title belts between them while Rhodes began by saying that for many Reigns is an impossible mountain to climb but that he had made a career of doing just that. Rhodes noted he was never meant to be more than Randy Orton’s understudy or to survive Stardust before referencing the industry-changing All In event and noted that nobody believed he and “his buddies little indy show” could sell out a 10,000 seat arena.
Now in the normal way they communicate their messages, The Young Bucks have changed their Twitter bio following Rhodes’ comments to simply state “All In.”
All In is seen by many as the proof of concept for AEW as Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks put their money where their mouth was by financing a show that sold out the Sears Center in Chicago, Illinois in a matter of minutes. Rhodes stole the show on the night as he captured the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship from Nick Aldis to emulate his father’s success.
The American Nightmare is hoping to eclipse Dusty Rhodes by capturing the one title The American Dream never did when he takes on Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.
