Triple H On Controversial WrestleMania 39 Ending – “The Story Continues”
On Sunday night at WrestleMania 39, many expected Cody Rhodes to finish his story and capture the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship but unfortunately for Rhodes and his fans, according to Triple H, this story seems to have no end in sight.
Cody Rhodes earned his way into the WrestleMania 39 main event by winning the 2023 Royal Rumble, guaranteeing his shot at Roman Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The story between the two men got personal in the weeks leading up to the show in Los Angeles with Reigns talking about his relationship with the legendary Dusty Rhodes while Rhodes repeatedly told Solo Sikoa that he wasn’t ready – something he probably shouldn’t have done.
In the main event, The Usos, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Solo Sikoa all got involved in the match with Sikoa nailing Rhodes with a Samoan Spike, allowing his Tribal Chief to hit a Spear and pick up the win.
The SoFi Stadium was left deflated, in stark contrast to Saturday night’s show when fans were given the cathartic release of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn defeating The Usos for the WWE Tag Team Championship.
Speaking at the post-WrestleMania press conference, WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H did his best to explain that in WWE the story never ends:
“It’s always interesting to me when people say how could that happen, or how could they do that in that moment. It’s almost perfectly spelled out in this story, to finish the story. In the WWE, the story never changes. Tomorrow night on Raw at the sold out Crypto Arena the story continues, the story takes another chapter. We just got to the end of the chapter. But the story continues and that is where the story gets interesting to me.”
Where Roman Reigns’ story ends remains to be seen but he is now battling to reach 1,000 days as Universal Champion, a milestone he’ll hit on the same day King & Queen of the Ring emanates from Saudi Arabia.
