WWE legend believes Cody Rhodes can’t beat Roman Reigns

Last updated

Cody Rhodes recently made his triumphant return to WWE and he has already set his sights on the ultimate prize, the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship that is currently held by Roman Reigns. WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff recently spoke about the clash between Rhodes and Reigns that has been slated. He believes ‘The American Nightmare’ will fall short in front of ‘The Tribal Chief.’

Eric Bischoff opens up on the possible Cody Rhodes vs Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns currently holds both men’s world titles, having held the Universal title for over 600 days and the WWE Championship since WrestleMania 38.

On the After 83 Weeks podcast, a fan asked Bischoff if Rhodes could be the one to beat Reigns. The Hall of Famer said he couldn’t see that happening presently:

“I don’t see it, I don’t see it (Cody Rhodes beating Roman Reigns).”

He explained why it might not be a good idea for The American Nightmare to beat The Tribal Chief:

“The only way I can see that being interesting would be if Roman had more of a traditional heel role. I don’t think Roman has a lot of heat. I think Roman’s playing that heel character as it is defined by today’s standards and creative standards in television. But, who hates Roman Reigns? As a character, do you have so much disdain for his character ’“ not how they use him or his entrance isn’t cool. But, just as a character, you feel he’s such a fantastic villain that he’s at a stage where he needs to be beaten?”
