Bruce Prichard Reveals How Long WWE Has Been Planning Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes


Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns will collide at WrestleMania 39 with the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship on the line.

Appearing on “The Press Box” podcast, Bruce Prichard commented on how long the Reigns vs. Rhodes headliner has been in the works. He said,


“You can look into the crystal ball a year ahead of time and think to yourself, ‘What would be a great attraction. And that takes many machinations where you look at, here’s your ideal scenario, here’s where I’d really love to go and where we think we will be.”

“However, as you start on that journey, you’re dealing with human beings, and you’re dealing with flesh and blood and bones. So along the way, a lot of things can happen that will change that trajectory — people could get hurt, different things could come up. So, what your wish list is, is oftentimes different than where you ultimately end up. I would say that getting to this place where we are started probably in August.”

Prichard noted that it’s a similar timeline to the one that WWE had when they penned Hulk Hogan vs. Randy Savage at WrestleMania 5.
