New major plans reportedly emerge for The Rock and Cody Rhodes at WWE Wrestlemania
Many expected Cody Rhodes to finally ‘finish his story’ and lay claim to the WWE Undisputed Universal title by dethroning Roman Reigns in Philadelphia – but that may no longer be the case.
According to Sports Illustrated, the new plan for WWE’s main event matches would see Reigns in his much-anticipated clash with The Rock after the WWE icon hinted at a possible showdown with his cousin during his appearance on Raw earlier this month.
As for Rhodes, his attention would switch to a match with CM Punk following their heated exchange on this week’s Monday Night Raw, leaving the World Heavyweight match to Seth Rollins defending his title against Gunther – who’s now expected to win the Royal Rumble and challenge ‘The Visionary’.
As for the women, the report claims the plan is still for Rhea Ripley to defend her World Championship against Becky Lynch, while Iyo Sky would be involved in some meeting with Bayley as the Royal Rumble winner.
