The wrestling world is still talking about the segment between Cody Rhodes/The Rock/Roman Reigns.
A new report from Fightful Select, has indicated that Rhodes warned WWE that fans may not be as accepting as they would like to Rock replacing him in the manner seen on SmackDown:
“Those that we spoke to claimed that Cody Rhodes expressed to WWE that he thought the reaction wouldn’t be the desired one, but still did the segment, and was said to have been in a somber mood after. Other sources claim that this decision goes all the way up to Ari Emanuel and Mark Shapiro, and was even above Nick Khan and Triple H… The segment went down, and featured the Rock and Cody Rhodes shaking hands. We haven’t been able to find out what The Rock said to Cody Rhodes verbatim, but have learned it was something in reference to their fathers. We’ve long heard that The Rock and Cody maintained a great relationship for years…”
It's unclear if The Rock vs. Reigns is still the plan for WrestleMania 40 in April, but as always, we will keep you posted on any developments.
