The Rock Supportive of Rhodes’ Story Behind the Scenes

While The Rock’s on-screen character has actually gone to terrific lengths to stand in the method of Cody Rhodes en path to WrestleMania 40, he obviously has a far various view of Cody’s climb in reality.

Talking to ESPN’s Marc Raimondi and Mike Coppinger, The Rock’s long time individual author and senior vice president of advancement for Seven Bucks Productions, Brian Gewirtz, offered some insight into how The Rock feels about Cody’s story:

“Would the fans be as determined [that] Cody requires to complete his story if he didn’t win the Royal Rumble? As soon as he won the Royal Rumble, then I believe there was a particular component of, ‘Hey, do not screw with us now!’ You can’t hang the Royal Rumble win and after that take it away.

“I believe everybody, Rock consisted of, was like, ‘Yeah, they’re. We must continue this story as it naturally would play out if this were reality,’ If this were reality and he won the Rumble and he didn’t win in 2015’s WrestleMania, there’s actually no sensible factor– although you might attempt to make one up– why he would not wish to deal with Roman and win the title.”

After Rhodes won the guys’s Royal Rumble match, all indications pointed towards him tough Roman Reigns for the indisputable WWE Universal Championship in the primary occasion of WrestleMania for a 2nd successive year.

On the taking place episode of SmackDown, Rhodes apparently stepped aside to permit The Rock to challenge Reigns rather.

Fans voiced their annoyance in the days that followed, and Cody reversed course at the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff interview and picked Reigns as his WrestleMania challenger, leaving fans questioning whether WWE rotated or if it was the strategy the whole time.

Whatever the case, WWE has actually constructed an extremely engaging story coming out of it with The Rock turning heel and signing up with The Bloodline.

Recently on Raw, The Rock beat Rhodes to a bloody pulp in what was among the most fascinating WWE angles in current memory.

The Rock and Reigns will collaborate to deal with Rhodes and Seth Rollins in the primary occasion of Night 1 of WrestleMania 40 on Saturday, followed by Rhodes dealing with Reigns for the title in the primary occasion of Night 2.

While the develop towards Reigns vs. Rhodes in 2015. was excellent, The Rock has actually injected brand-new life into the story, and as an outcome, it will be an even larger offer if The American Nightmare dominates.
