Wrestling veteran Kevin Sullivan claimed it would be a “great idea” if Cody Rhodes never won the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship.
The American Nightmare returned to the Stamford-based company last year. Rhodes claimed he wanted to “end history” and win the WWE Championship that his legendary father never won. Earlier this year, he emerged victorious in the men’s Royal Rumble, securing his ticket to the main event of WrestleMania.
Rhodes challenged Roman Reigns for the WWE Undisputed Universal Title at Show of Shows. However, the 38-year-old lost the fight after interference from Solo Sikoa.
I’m talking about a recent episode of Tuesday with the taskmaster , Sullivan was asked about the possibility that Rhodes “never finishes the story.” The wrestling veteran explained that it would be a “great idea”:
“That’s a great idea. Because his dad never got the WWF belt. They always show the photo of him wearing the belt. That’s something to think about, and I was against Cody beating Roman Reigns. I have that made it very clear because… I think I told you a few weeks ago that this happened right after Sami didn’t beat Roman. I thought the Sami people might turn against Cody because he had just arrived , and it would lose popularity,” he said.
“He was Cody Rhodes and he overcame it and because he was there for years, he left, made a big name for himself and came back. I thought if I won here it would almost look like I was a corporate champion. “I like that it wasn’t overdone and it will be interesting to see where they go with Cody at WrestleMania 40 with The Rock replacing Roman.”
