Cody Rhodes reveals the SADDEST MOMENT of his career

Last updated

In a candid interview with Sports Illustrated, Cody Rhodes, the renowned RAW Superstar, opened up about his career’s most disheartening moment.

His defeat at WrestleMania 39’s main event, where he faced Roman Reigns, marked a significant emotional low for Rhodes’ character:

“I was just in a WrestleMania 39 ring basically replicating the saddest moment I’ve ever had in my career” Rhodes revealed when speaking about the latest promotional video for WWE 2K24.

“In a wild way, it was also incredibly rewarding. I got to make the walk and main event a WrestleMania. Still, you have to win. That’s the whole point. And that’s what is happening in real-time.”
