Cody Rhodes lost to Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 39 after winning the 2023 men’s Royal Rumble.

Opinion: That is a great sign for Rhodes’ status in WWE, as he is still doing well despite losing the biggest match of his career.

WWE has something with him and this is the kind of thing that is going to prove that in numbers.
