Even though Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes made his decision last night at the WrestleMania Kickoff the title picture still seems a bit cloudy.
Rhodes decided to face Roman Reigns, the Universal Heavyweight Champion, at WrestleMania while The Rock and Reigns agreed to face each other in a battle of the Bloodline, of sorts.
There is speculation that at certain instances before and after last night’s presser that the superstars in question might have made some “shoot” comments to one another.
Left out of all the drama and seemingly left without a WrestleMania challenger Seth Rollins, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, spoke to Fox News after the heated press conference.
“It’s just what happens when powerful people exert their power. They just think they do whatever they want and get away with it and that sucks. It just sucks. I don’t know any other way to put it. I guess it (resulted) in Cody getting what he wanted. We’ll figure out what’s next for the World Heavyweight title. But Cody said it best. It’s bulls—-. It feels pretty gross to me,” said Rollins.
Rollins would go even further insisting The Rock has done this before to others.
“The last time he came around, I don’t like (CM) Punk but he did the same thing to Punk, kind of came in and took his main event and did it two years in a row with some very not-so-memorable matches with John Cena. But yeah, now coming back, on the board of directors, like I said man, it feels like gross. I don’t like it. I feel like we got to do something about it. Just don’t know what that next step is going to be,” he told Fox News Digital.
When asked why his pitch to Rhodes seemingly failed, Rollins had this to say: “I sold Cody on this title because I believe in this title and I do think because of Roman Reigns’ lack of independence, for lack of a better term, that this title is more prestigious and means more,” he said. “Especially, going forward, if Roman Reigns keeps his title, this one is only going to get bigger. But I understand where he’s coming from. I never faulted him for wanting to finish the story – it meant so much to him. I understand why he made the decision, and it is what it is and that’s his prerogative as the winner of the Royal Rumble. I don’t know why those idiots thought that was their decision to make.”
