In a recent interview with 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Wrestling Inside The Ropes show, WWE on-air talent Paul Heyman discussed several topics, including the possibility of Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns facing off against Cody Rhodes at a future WWE event.
“Absolutely, Cody is box office and I’d like to see him in the ring with Roman. Cody is not only someone with an extensive legacy, my God, he’s the son of ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes, but he has carved out his own niche, he’s achieved his own accomplishments and when he couldn’t gain enough traction in WWE to become a legend, to become a first-ballot Hall of Famer, to become a WWE or Universal or Unified Heavyweight Champion, he went out on his own.
He blazed his own trail, he created something, co-created and helped create something that completely changed the complexion of the industry, and now, he comes back to claim what he feels is his moment, and the only way he’s going to be able to live that moment is to step into the ring with ‘The Tribal Chief’ Roman Reigns. It’s a story that writes itself and Cody Rhodes is a magnificent talent, who whether he is, and he is the son of Dusty Rhodes, but whether he is or isn’t the son of Dusty Rhodes, on his own just as ‘Joe Blow’, not as big a name as ‘Cody Rhodes’, but still, he could take the name ‘Joe Blow’, and he could become huge box office, he’s that talented.”
