Cody Rhodes Reacts To Fan Investment In Him ‘Finishing The Story’

Cody Rhodes Reacts To Fan Investment In Him ‘Finishing The Story’ WWE

Cody Rhodes failed to finish the story in the main event of WrestleMania 39, when he was defeated by Roman Reigns following interference from Solo Sikoa.

Cody’s defeat has seemingly led to a rematch between Roman and Cody for next year’s WrestleMania event, with many wondering if Cody would remain as popular as he was heading into this year’s event.

Since WrestleMania however, the crowd support for the American Nightmare has only grown, and even Cody himself is confused as to how it happened.

Speaking with Uproxx ahead of the release of his documentary on Peacock, Cody discussed the investment fans have in him finishing the story.

He said:

“If I knew (how to keep fans this invested), I would bottle it up, put a label on it and sell it. It’s almost a game of other people thinking, ‘Oh, there’s no way it’s going to get any hotter. There’s no way the moment’s going to stay right how it is now.’ And we’ve just been blessed that it’s gotten bigger.

“I dropped the ball in front of them at WrestleMania, but something about it they liked, or something about it spoke to them, or stoked a fire, and it’s almost scary, it’s fragile. As much as I want to appear strong, and be confident and all that stuff, I can’t take it for granted. Any minute now, it could go away. I want to keep it going as long as possible in a way that the transaction with fans is purely genuine. And I’m lucky that that’s been the case.”

Cody also recently revealed a segment in his new documentary that he didn’t watch due to it being ‘so dark’.
