Road Dogg Says Cody Rhodes Hasn’t Earned A World Title Win Yet


Cody Rhodes becoming Undisputed WWE Universal Champion at WrestleMania 39 would have come too soon for him, according to ‘Road Dogg’ Jesse James.

Earlier this month, Rhodes was unable to ‘finish the story‘ when he lost to Roman Reigns during the main event of WrestleMania 39: Night Two.


The result has been met with a mixed response by fans, with many believing that WrestleMania 39 was the perfect time to crown a new champion.

On his “Oh You Didn’t Know?” podcast, James argued that Rhodes needed more adversity to overcome before he wins the big one. He said,

“He came in and he had no adversity. He went right through the [Royal] Rumble, right through everybody, and right to the champion. And so the argument could be made, if you just give it to him now, did he earn it?”

On the post-WrestleMania 39 episode of RAW, Rhodes was attacked by Brock Lesnar and a match between the two is expected at the upcoming WWE Backlash event.
