Following the truly shocking conclusion to WrestleMania 39 which saw Cody Rhodes fall to Roman Reigns and the Bloodline in the main event, Rhodes has publicly reflected on the defeat for the first time.
Posting to his Instagram, Rhodes would thank WWE for the opportunity to headline WrestleMania, while also spelling out what may be next for him.
“A long week. I know last Sunday was not the result I’d hoped for, and I know many fans were disappointed as well. I make no excuses. I lost. I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you how much I enjoyed the ride…until Sunday night, and furthermore Monday night.
I would like to thank @thebrandirhodes @wwe , the city of Los Angeles, Matt Rolf, @bradkolowichjr , @sgovintage , @jtcervero , HHH, The McMahon Family, Bruce, Conrad, Kevin Dunn, Ryan W Ryan C Mustache Chad Brian James Ed K, John Cone, John Cena, and @makeawishamerica for allowing me the honor to induct 15 wishes into the Circle Of Champions, and many more names I may be forgetting…in addition Nick Khan for taking care of my family through the festivities.
Lastly, the almost 200k fans who attended the weekend overall…unwavering and motivating. I want to be your champion. This Monday I hope to speak about my future with WWE and what may be next for me. @usanetwork
Following WrestleMania, Rhodes would appear on last Monday’s Raw after WrestleMania demanding a rematch with Reigns, however, he would find himself in a tag match alongside Brock Lesnar against Roman and Solo Sikoa.
Shockingly Lesnar would attack Rhodes before the match would begin, seemingly setting up ‘The American Nightmare’s’ next angle in WWE.
With Roman Reigns set to miss the next WWE Premium Live Event Backlash, will Rhodes be set for a match with Brock instead?
Despite speculation suggesting the contrary WWE’s creative plans for Cody to feud with Brock post Mania were made a month in advance, however, whether it leads to a match at Backlash is yet to be confirmed.
I guess we may get our answer on Monday night.
