Jimmy Korderas Says WWE Should’ve Saved Cody Rhodes/Paul Heyman RAW Promo For Later


This week on Monday Night RAW, Cody Rhodes was confronted by Paul Heyman who congratulated The American Nightmare on his Royal Rumble victory before turning his WrestleMania feud with Roman Reigns deeply personal.

WWE’s longest-tenured referee, Jimmy Korderas, took to Twitter to express his admiration for the segment before questioning whether it was too early for WWE to do it as it might overshadow Roman Reigns vs. Sami Zayn at Elimination Chamber. Korderas said,


“I know this might surprise a lot of people, because we saw some great television last night on Monday Night Raw. But was it the right time to present what we saw? What we saw between Cody Rhodes and Paul Heyman last night was absolute gold. Setting up that match for WrestleMania between Cody and Roman Reigns — there was just magic in the words those two were speaking. Emotion, the passion was great and everything.”

“The only thing was, should it have gone on last night before Elimination Chamber? Because they’ve done a great job to promote the Sami Zayn vs. Roman Reigns match at Elimination Chamber. But now everyone is looking past that and looking forward to Cody Rhodes instead of looking at the Sami Zayn/Roman Reigns match, which is — the setup for that has been gold as well. I don’t know, maybe they should have just saved that moment for the Raw after Chamber.”

Rhodes will challenge Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 39.
