In one of his latest interviews, Cody Rhodes talked about WrestleMania 40, also underlining the possibility that The Rock could steal his place in the main event of the show. "Nobody asked me about The Rock. I think they're afraid to ask me or they don't want to be rude.
I'll say this about The Rock. I followed what The Rock said live on the Pat McAfee show, because I love Pat and I love SmackDown The Rock has done so much for sports entertainment, and continues to do so much being the biggest star in Hollywood, and I'm able to do what I do because of what The Rock has done.
He's honestly a superstar model for anyone who wants to exceed expectations. That said, it doesn't matter what he said, and it doesn't matter whoever asked me questions about it. I'm not backing down. If The Rock and I were in the same room, he would expect nothing less from me.
If you think it's someone else, I'll do everything I can to make sure you know it's me. It's the same attitude The Rock had when he was climbing the ladder. I don't care who's in front of me. If it's The Rock, a wonderful superstar like LA Knight, a star like Sami Zayn.
Line them up and I'll do everything I can to outrun them," explained Cody
