Can Cody Rhodes finally finish his story? He’ll have to get through The Rock first.

Rhodes’s pursuit of WWE’s undisputed universal championship has taken longer than most fans expected. From the moment he left the company he helped found, AEW, and returned to WWE in 2022, Rhodes made it clear that his goal was to win the title that his father, the great Dusty Rhodes, never got to hold. But there were plenty of bumps in the road. Just two months after his return, Rhodes tore a pectoral muscle on the eve of his Hell in a Cell match against Seth Rollins. Rhodes wrestled through the injury against Rollins, with the entire right side of his chest covered in a deep purple bruise, but he then underwent surgery to repair the injury and was sidelined for more than six months.

Rhodes made his return in January 2023, winning the Royal Rumble to earn a championship match at WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles. The stage was set for him to dethrone Roman Reigns and hoist that elusive championship. But he didn’t. In a result that shocked almost everyone, Reigns won the match and retained the title.

Now Rhodes has another chance to vanquish Reigns—but there’s one more hurdle in the way. Rhodes and Reigns will square off in the main event of the second night of WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia on Sunday. But first, they’ll meet in a tag team match on Saturday. Rhodes will team with Rollins and Reigns will team with The Rock. If Rhodes’s team wins on Saturday, all members of Reigns’s Bloodline faction will be banned from ringside on Sunday. If Reigns’s team wins, Sunday’s match will be contested under “Bloodline rules” (meaning there are no rules).

In addition to the two matches featuring Rhodes and Reigns, there are 11 other bouts scheduled for the two-night event. Highlights include brothers Jey and Jimmy Uso squaring off against each other, a six-team ladder match for the tag team championship, the return of Logan Paul and an opportunity for Gunther to extend his record-long reign with the intercontinental championship.
