AEW Name Explains Why Cody Rhodes Losing At WrestleMania 39 Was The Right Call WWE

It’s now been over a week since the polarising ending to WrestleMania 39 night two, when Roman Reigns retained the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against the American Nightmare Cody Rhodes.

Many people, both fans and those within wrestling, have spoken about how they believe the decision to have Reigns retain was the wrong one.

However, WWE Hall of Famer and current AEW name Jim Ross has a different perspective, believing that WWE made the correct decision in the main event.

Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, he said:

“I like the longer story, to be honest with you. It really doesn’t have anything to do with Cody as much as it does with storytelling. The chase that he can embark upon, if done properly, can be extremely successful for Cody and WWE.

“I understand the disappointment. I’m not criticizing it whatsoever, I just think that this long-term arc to get him back to the promised land is the way to go. It’s good storytelling, especially for a company that produces five hours of big-time live television a week… They need stories that have a direction and a purpose and a reason, and there’s certainly plenty of reason to promote the eventual return match.”

Cody’s quest to return to the promised land will see him go through Brock Lesnar at WWE Backlash in Puerto Rico next month.
