Cody Rhodes Not Scheduled For WWE SmackDown Shows Heading Into WrestleMania 39


Cody Rhodes made his return to in-ring action last Saturday night, where he won the 30-Man Royal Rumble match.

Rhodes has earned the right to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 39.


The RAW star is not currently slated to appear on SmackDown shows leading up to WrestleMania 39. Dave Meltzer reported the following in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:

“Lesnar has been confirmed to be working both Montreal and WrestleMania. For Mania, it could be another match with Lashley. We were only told rumors of Gunther are false and that Steve Austin, who they had contacted for Lesnar, had turned down wrestling on the show.”
