Cody Rhodes: Headlining WrestleMania Doesn’t Fully Matter Unless I Win

Cody Rhodes doesn’t talk to Dustin about headlining WrestleMania, but maybe he should.

“The American Nightmare” is preparing to headline his first WrestleMania when he challenges Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. He’s spoken at length about how important the match is to himself and his legacy, but he hasn’t talked about it much with his own brother. During a recent interview with Kevin Kellam of Sportskeeda, Rhodes opened up about their conversations.


“Yeah, Dustin and I, we really just speak about everything else because my dad’s documentary comes out on the 26th, the Superstar Sunday before WrestleMania. That’s something we’re all excited to see and see his foundation kicked off that way,” Rhodes said. “But yeah, it’s not really something I’ve talked to him about what I’m feeling only because it’s—I don’t know. I’ve talked to DDP a little bit about how I’m feeling. Even in that, this is a moment no one in my circle has never experienced, and I kind of want to just experience it all, I guess, selfishly myself.

“I also don’t want to beat it over anyone’s head, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m in the main event of WrestleMania.’ Because to me, as wonderful as that is, it doesn’t fully matter to me unless I win,” Rhodes added. “And that’s a lot of pressure. It might be good to talk to Dustin more because Dustin’s a very reasonable and down to earth and wonderful person. I know he’ll be one of the only phone calls I make the day before just because you know the family I have, and I want that love and support and want to know what they’re thinking.”
