Report by Lovell Porter for Wrestlezone.com
In-Ring Segment: Cody Rhodes
Rhodes is drowned out by “you deserve it!” chants. Rhodes asks the crowd what they want to talk about. He goes on to chart his journey through the years and what he would and wouldn’t tell his younger self. Including leaving to focus on the industry’s health and ultimately neglecting his own. Rhodes reminds the crowd that the beginning of his entrance music notes that there is more than one royal family in wrestling. For that to be true, he has to stand across the ring from essentially the LeBron James of this generation, The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns.
He has a great deal of respect for Reigns. After WrestleMania, Reigns can be the Tribal Chief, and he can be The Head of the Table, but the one thing he will not be is the world champion. Before Rhodes can leave, he is interrupted by Finn Bálor, Dominik Mysterio, and Damian Priest. Bálor accuses Rhodes of stealing all his best stuff. Dominik says his Mami won the women’s Royal Rumble, and he was supposed to win the men’s Rhodes ruined his moment. Bálor says Rey Mysterio didn’t make it to the Rumble, but Dominik found his mask. Priest craps on Rhodes for being gifted the number 30 spot.

Rhodes asks Dominik if he’s trying to scare him straight. Rhodes says he has respect for Dominik’s dad. Dominik says he doesn’t have respect for anyone’s dad, especially Rhodes’ dad. Rhodes says he sees what this is. Rhodes could play it safe until WrestleMania, or he could be him and kick any member of The Judgement Day’s ass. He doesn’t care which one it is. He wants one of them tonight. Edge’s music hits, and he runs down the ramp to attack everyone in The Judgement Day. Rhodes joins in. Officials attempt to break up the brawl.
