Cody Rhodes Names Stars Who Have Inspired Him As WWE Champion WWE

Cody Rhodes has given a shout out to two major stars who have inspired him during his Undisputed WWE Championship reign.

Rhodes’ WWE Title win was an iconic one, with the American Nightmare pinning Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 40.

With this being Rhodes’ first reign with the WWE Championship, the popular star is currently finding his footing as the face of WWE.

During the WWE King & Queen of the Ring Countdown show, Rhodes noted that he looks to Randy Orton and John Cena for inspiration. He explained:

“I’ve tried to stay connected to Randy Orton, and always remembering what I saw in 2008/2009 when John Cena was on top of the bill, and doing my best to do what they did right, but do it my own way.”

Rhodes will defend his Undisputed WWE Championship against US Champion Logan Paul at King & Queen of the Ring.

Randy Orton will also be in action at this weekend’s PLE, with the Viper set to battle GUNTHER in the King of the Ring finals.

Orton will break a three year long streak at King & Queen of the Ring, which you can read more about right here.
