Cody Rhodes References All In During Heated Promo Battle With Roman Reigns

Cody Rhodes

On March 3rd, Cody Rhodes headed to SmackDown for the first time in seven years to “have a conversation” with Roman Reigns.

The Tribal Chief and The Bloodline were out first but they didn’t have to wait long for Cody Rhodes to make his own entrance.

Rhodes kicked things off by saying that contrary to what Paul Heyman had said on Raw, he wasn’t there to invade, simply to talk. This led Reigns to dismiss Jimmy Uso, Paul Heyman, and Solo Sikoa.

Reigns laid down the two championship belts between the pair and the American Nightmare said that to many the champion was an impossible mountain, but not to him. See, this is basically his thing, he was never meant to be more than Randy Orton’s understudy, or survive Stardust.

The Royal Rumble winner also snuck in a mention of All In, commenting that nobody believed he and his Indie buddies would be able to sell out a 10,000-seater stadium.

Then it was Reigns’ turn to fire back and he wasted little time in getting very personal. The star said that had has too much respect for Dusty Rhodes to talk badly about him before recalling his own history with The Dream via an impression of the Hall of Famer.

Roman Reigns Claims The American Dream Never Mentioned Cody Rhodes

The Head of the Table said that in all the time he spoke with Dusty, he never mentioned Cody. He closed by saying that if there was anything The Dream didn’t teach Cody, he will teach him at WrestleMania.

At this, Reigns put his hand out to Rhodes, but the American Nightmare wasn’t done. Rhodes questioned whether Reigns really was the son his father always wanted, before firing up and declaring that this is exactly why he needs to win. To exist, he must beat Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.

The pair shook hands to close the segment, and Reigns smiled as he left the ring.
