WWE Hall Of Famer Thinks Bloodline Focus Is Wrong For WrestleMania

A WWE Hall of Famer has explained why he doesn’t like The Bloodline’s story going into WrestleMania 40.

WrestleMania 40 will see Cody Rhodes challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in the main event of Night 2. At WrestleMania 39, Rhodes was the victim of interference from The Bloodline which allowed Reigns to hang onto the gold for another year. For the rematch, though, The American Nightmare has the opportunity to even the odds.

After accepting a blockbuster challenge from The Rock, Rhodes will team up with Seth Rollins to take on Rock and Reigns on Night 1. If Rhodes and Rollins are successful, The Great One has promised there will be no interference from The Bloodline when Rhodes takes on Reigns the next night. However, if Rock and Reigns emerge victorious, it’ll be ‘Bloodline Rules’ meaning the group can do whatever it takes to stop Cody from finishing his story and dethroning The Tribal Chief.

One man who isn’t pleased with this turn of events is AEW star Mark Henry. Speaking on Busted Open, the WWE Hall of Famer explained that he would prefer things to be fair going into the main event, whereas WWE has set the stage for the match to be anything but that.

“Not only is it high stakes, [WWE] basically have set up a way now that the Bloodline can do whatever they want. I mean, don’t you want fair? Everybody should be working towards fair, one-on-one, mano a mano, the title of ‘The Tribal Chief’ and ‘The Head of The Table, and most of all, Universal Champion rolled into one.

“I feel like if you allow all of this interference, it takes away from that. But that’s kind of what they’re gearing toward. I feel like the focus should be more on the honor of the big event rather than, what can we get away with?”

The Rock Claims Being Heel In WWE Is The Best

When The Rock first returned to WWE, it appeared that he was on a collision course with Roman Reigns, however, with fans overwhelmingly wanting Cody Rhodes to finish his story, the creative direction was turned on its head and The Great One became the bad guy for the first time in two decades.

During a recent interview, The Rock claimed that his heel persona is the best as it allows him to say the things “people want to say.”
