WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes wanted a WrestleMania rematch with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia on April 6 and 7, 2024. However, Dwayne Johnson, aka “The Rock,” has also expressed interest in facing Reigns. On the other hand, The American Nightmare is looking to avenge his WrestleMania 39 loss and complete his storyline against The Big Dog.
Hence, fans are confused about the showdown they will see at WM 40. Roman Reigns currently surpasses Cody Rhodes on a unique list. WrestleMania in Philadelphia could be the ideal arena for their showdown, and fans are eager for this matchup.

While Dwayne Johnson is WWE superstar, Cody Rhodes also has impressive ratings and fan support.

This creates more opportunities for the two top players to face each other in the upcoming WrestleMania.
In WWE, certain stars attract more viewers than others. According to Dave Meltzer, the top minute-by-minute ratings draws for WWE are Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, and John Cena. Roman Reigns has been WWE’s top star for years and holds the undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Cody Rhodes is a top fan favorite, and John Cena boosts ratings every time he returns to WWE TV.
It’s no surprise that the Tribal Chief is at the top of the list, as he is the only person capable of attracting more than 3 million viewers on US TV these days. Nevertheless, Roman’s fans are highly satisfied that their hero is undefeated and on track to potentially become a legendary wrestler very soon.
