Early Discussed Main Event For WrestleMania 40 Revealed WWE

One match that has been discussed as a potential main event for WrestleMania 40 next year has reportedly been revealed.

We’re just over a month after WrestleMania 39 took place in Hollywood, but according to WRKD Wrestling, there have already been plans talked about in WWE for next year’s event.

WrestleMania 40 takes place on April 6 and 7, 2024 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Shortly after last night’s May 22, 2023 episode of WWE Raw went off the air, WRKD Wrestling tweeted:

While it’s still early, discussions have taken place for #WWERaw’s main event for WrestleMania 40 to potentially be Cody Rhodes vs. Gunther.

Both superstars have expressed interest in working with each other in the past and are seen as the top face and heel on the Raw roster.

Obviously a lot can change in a year, and the report only said the match has been “discussed”, not that it is necessarily the current plan.

Rhodes and Gunther have already interacted in a big way, that being as the final two participants in the Royal Rumble earlier this year, when Gunther had started at #1 and Rhodes had come in at #30, and obviously it was Rhodes who got the better of that and won the Rumble match.

Gunther still hasn’t been beaten in a singles match since being called up to the WWE main roster in April 2022, and Rhodes’ only losses since his own WWE return in April 2022 have been to Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 39, and the recent three-way on Raw with Finn Balor and The Miz, where Brock Lesnar cost Rhodes the match.

The card for WWE Night of Champions 2023 on Saturday, May 27 is as follows:

World Heavyweight Championship – Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins vs. AJ Styles

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship – Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (c) vs. Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa

Raw Women’s Championship – Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka

SmackDown Women’s Championship – Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Natalya

Intercontinental Championship – Gunther (c) vs. Mustafa Ali

Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar

Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus
