They had a different idea. We are less than two months away from WrestleMania 39 and the show’s main event is already set. Cody Rhodes will challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title, a championship that he set his sights on when he returned to WWE last April. The match has already been built, and now we know a bit more about one of the biggest pieces.

This week on Monday Night Raw, Rhodes and Reigns’ advocate Paul Heyman had a face to face showdown, where they talked about their history with Cody’s father Dusty. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the segment that aired was different than the one originally planned. The original segment did not involve Heyman, who was in town because he is part of the creative team for any segment involving Brock Lesnar. Heyman and Cody put together the final segment, which was designed to make Cody vs. Reigns feel like the biggest match of the year.

It was a busy night. Check out the segment, plus Cody and Reigns in action:

Opinion: Yeah this is going to work and it is going to be quite the showdown. Cody is someone the fans have gotten behind and will support no matter what and that is going to be the big deal that he needs against Reigns. I could go for seeing this showdown and the fact that they have me thinking that with about two months to go before WrestleMania shows that they are doing something right.
