The second night of WrestleMania 40 is expected to be an exciting match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The reigning champion, Roman Reigns, will defend his title against the 2024 Royal Rumble winner, Cody Rhodes.

WWE writer Brian Gewirtz talked about the creative direction of Cody Rhodes’ run to WrestleMania 40 in an interview with ESPN.com. Gewirtz wondered if Cody’s victory in the Royal Rumble would have made fans’ desire for him to conclude his storyline less intense.

He stressed that fans’ expectations for a smooth continuation of Cody’s story were raised by his triumph in the Royal Rumble.

Gewirtz emphasized the general agreement among WWE insiders—among them wrestling legend The Rock—that it would be hypocritical to retract Cody Rhodes’ victory from the Royal Rumble.

He emphasized how crucial it is to keep the plot realistic and true, pointing out that in the real world, Cody’s triumph would naturally result in a chance to defend the title at WrestleMania 40.
