WWE Confirms Cody Rhodes Title Change

Cody Rhodes

Cody Rhodes finally won the big one in WWE and now the company has clarified just what he will be known as.

Cody Rhodes finished his story at WrestleMania 40 when he defeated Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. That title had been used by Reigns since WrestleMania 38 when he captured the WWE Title to go along with the Universal Championship he won all the way back in August 2020.

However, Rhodes was announced by ring announcer Samantha Irvin as the new Undisputed WWE Champion upon his win leading to some uncertainty as to what title Cody Rhodes will use.

Now WWE seems to have cleared things up on its website as while previously Rhodes had been listed as the “Undisputed WWE Universal Champion” he is now listed as simply the “Undisputed WWE Champion.” Clicking through to The American Nightmare’s profile shows that the company still recognise that he holds two separate titles as both the Universal and WWE Championships are listed there.

Cody Rhodes Faces First Title Defence In France

Cody Rhodes will put his Undisputed WWE Championship on the line for the very first time at Backlash in France on May 5th.

Two triple threat matches took place on the 12th of April edition of SmackDown with LA Knight and AJ Styles emerging as the winners. Those men will clash in a WrestleMania 40 rematch when SmackDown emanates from Pittsburgh and the winner will face Rhodes in France.
