“When you do something so special and epic, and I’m especially talking about his run as champion. Not anything I did, when you change the landscape of the company. When you help better the locker room situation for the talent surrounding you. When you bring the entire tide of one company, which Roman did and then you’re part of something like WrestleMania 40.”

“I believe it was his 9th or 10th main event of the WrestleMania, you’re a part of that. In the oddest of ways, we don’t need to have a moment, he was nowhere to be found. I look forward to when we do have a moment when we get to see one another.”

Nevertheless, Rhodes also stated how The Tribal Chief’s run as a champion has been “generational” and he had “changed the industry” which very few people have the opportunity to say. But more importantly, Rhodes is waiting to meet Reigns when he returns.
