Cody Rhodes made his WrestleMania 40 decision on the recent episode of Friday Night SmackDown on February 2nd.
Roman Reigns began by responding to everything Seth Rollins said on Monday Night Raw. Rollins told Rhodes that facing Reigns he would loose because all Reigns ever does is cheat.
Reigns went on to talk about Seth Rollins recent injuries and the way he dresses. Reigns also says he will not beg for attention like Seth Rollins did.
Cody Rhodes then makes his way out to the ring to make his announcement. Tensions were high as the two stood face to face Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso were dismissed from the ring.
When Rhodes first started speaking it seemed as if Rhodes would choose Reigns as his WrestleManina opponent. Rhodes spoke about how he agred with mostly everything Rollins said on Monday Night Raw.
One thing he disagreed with was calling Roman Reigns’s title a Hollywood totle. Rhodes stated the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship title is not a Hollywood title, but is something his dad won at Maddison Square Garden but had it taken away.
Rhodes then goes on to ask Reigns “What is finishing a story?” he heard Reigns say everything belongs to him. Like the Ring, announce desk, the camera, and all the people.
Cody talks about how finishing his story would be taking everything from Reigns, not just the title. He makes it clear he is moving his goal post, but still wants that title.
Rhodes says he will take is totle, but not at WrestleMania. Rhodes took to council with someone ehon knows Reigns very well.
Then The Rock’s music hits and he make his way out to the ring. Cody anf Rock shake hands and Rhodes leave. SmackDown ends with Reigns and The Rock facing down.
