Cody Rhodes hasn’t yet faced Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, but he’s already laying out his plans.
With the match set to take place at WrestleMania 39 in April, Rhodes has already called for WWE management to split up the unified championship.
Speaking to Fightful, the American Nightmare discussed what he wants from his time as WWE Champion, saying:
“Like the song Kingdom says, ‘I’ll follow you till the end.’ When is the end? Is the end when I win the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship, or is the end when I win that title and then take it every single place I can possibly take it and excel and deliver on a level that no champion has done in years?
“I want to cut a schedule like Bret Hart, like Ric Flair. I want to do something very different than modern champions have done, where there’s a bit of a ‘less is more’ schedule.
“I want a ‘more is more’ schedule. It would mean vindication for me, for sure.”
The top tier of champions in WWE has featured less frequently on WWE shows, whether that be TV or house shows.
Fightful notes that an example of a “more is more” champion would have been John Cena when he was a full-time wrestler in WWE.
Arguably under the “less is more” approach, an appearance by Roman Reigns on a WWE house show recently boosted ticket sales.
Rhodes recently suggested that his championship match against Reigns would take place on night 2 of WrestleMania 39.
