As Dwayne Johnson Buying WWE Rumors Persist, Cody Rhodes Respectfully Gives the Rock a Reality Check: “The Options We Have Here... Are Even Better”

Rising to fame in the late 1990s, The Rock’s wrestling career is full of titles and achievements. He has won against some of the greatest names in the industry; he is the most energetic and charismatic sports entertainer that has ever stepped in the ring. Dwayne ” The Rock” Johnson tends to return to the ring every year in WrestleMania.

However, Cody Rhodes believes otherwise, as he commented that WWE does not need the services of the most charismatic man in sports entertainment, and he believes that the company has better options and is working on long-term arcs.

What Did Cody Rhodes Say in The Interview?

Cody Rhodes who returned to WWE Royal Rumble after recovering from an injury won the Royal Rumble. Cody Rhodes recently had an interview where he revealed that WWE is not depending on The Rock, as the WWE has a lot of big names who can entertain the fans, he said that the arc revolving around Sami Zayn and Roman Reigns is one of the instances. Here’s what Cody Rhodes said in the interview:

“I love that you bring it up that these stories are running parallel, I think sometimes wrestling fans think it’s got to be one or it’s got to be the other, whereas I subscribe – and I’m not in charge – I subscribe to give them everything.”

“That’s where it really takes smart planners and creative individuals on how you layer it, but it’s very important and this is something I learned when I was away, is that if someone’s doing great, and they are entertaining and helping move that ship forward – and I would say Seth Rollins is another example on Raw.”

“He was another when I was gone who’s really changed and continued to carry Raw on his back. I was fully expecting these things to converge, and I’m still expecting them to converge just because we have these wonderful options.”

“With all the respect in the world to one of the GOATs, The Rock, it looks like the options we have here within the roster are even better because of the stories that are happening.”

It is understandable that WWE reached a point of success where they do not have to depend on the stars of the past on their biggest annual event, WrestleMania. Many fans would agree with Cody Rhodes for his comments on The Rock, but there’s no denying that bringing The Rock on board would bring more viewers, even though he plays a one-off role.

The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes punched his ticket to WrestleMania 39 after he won the Royal Rumble, earning him the main event match at WrestleMania 39 against Roman Reigns, The Undisputed WWE Champion. However, that would only be possible if Roman Reigns defeats Sami Zayn at Elimination Chamber.

Cody Rhodes would love to have a championship belt around his waist and it will be about cementing his legacy, and winning a championship that neither his father, Dusty Rhodes nor his brother, Dustin Rhodes got a chance to win. Here’s what Cody Rhodes said in the interview:

“One story about finishing something that started in 1978 – seven years before I was even born – and another story of really the tragedy of being welcomed into the Bloodline and then what you saw unfolds.”

“I think with the amount of time between now and WrestleMania, it’s important I keep my eyes squarely fixed on WrestleMania, squarely wrestling for the WWE Undisputed Championship and as you hinted that may not be against Roman Reigns.”

“Now I don’t know if anyone can beat Roman Reigns, I truly don’t, but for me, it’s about picking up the chip. I love the melodrama, I love the heaviness in these stories that develop in our industry, but I am very simply a man who’s looking for a belt.”

“I’m looking for a championship title belt, the most important one in our world the biggest in all – not just in the WWE bubble but in all the bubbles – and be the first to say as a Rhodes I did it. And it wasn’t Dusty Rhodes and it wasn’t Dustin Rhodes – it was Cody Rhodes.”

After returning from the injury Cody Rhodes is in great shape and form, and with the way, he is performing in his matches. Cody Rhodes won against Finn Balor on 30th January on Raw, just two days after winning the Royal Rumble. Many people believe that he can win against Roman Reigns or Sami Zayn in WrestleMania.
