Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes- Who will win?
Ever since winning and unifying the Universal Championship and the WWE Championship, Roman Reigns had a dominant title run. He was pretty much untouchable, with each one of his title defenses being successful. Reigns is about to set a new record of defending a championship for 3 years back to back during the same title reign, when he defends the Universal Championship against Cody Rhodes.
Cody on the other hand, is gearing up to be the one to end The Tribal Chief’s dominant title reign. He is set up as a huge babyface, getting big pops from the WWE Universe wherever he goes. He certainly has a huge challenge in front of him, and hopes in fulfilling his father’s dream. Reigns on the other hand, looks forward to holding the Universal title for a 1000-day run.
The stakes are high for both of them. The two star-studded Superstars are set to collide on April 2 in the main event of WrestleMania 39. Watch their match at WrestleMania 39 to find out who emerges victorious.
