Cody Rhodes surprised everyone by returning at WWE WrestleMania 38. Rhodes got tremendous response from fans after his return.
He became the company’s top babyface very soon. Many fans believe that Rhodes can defeat Roman Reigns to become the World Champion for the first time.
It has been more than 850 days since Roman Reigns became Universal Champion. He is the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
However, Vince Russo believes that there is currently no capable superstar on the roster who can beat Tribal Chief for the title.
On an episode of Sportskeeda’s Legion of Raw, three months ago, Russo revealed that he can foresee that WWE will book Cody Rhodes to win against Roman.
The former WWE head writer also said that this decision of the company could prove to be wrong.
“Brother, let me tell you something about that. It’s very possible that they’re going to do that and if you ask me, that’s not believable. And then, bro, the fans are going to feel like WWE is shoving Rhodes down his throat. (It’s going to backfire)”
“Exactly, bro! I’m telling you, brother. Just because no one else is there, they feel like they need a change. It’s not believable that Stardust is beating Roman Reigns, and fans are feeling like they’re being forced down his throat.” [H/T SK Wrestling]
