Even since Cody Rhodes made his return at WrestleMania 38, fans want to see him go one-on-one with Roman Reigns. In fact, there are a few who want him to be the one to dethrone The Tribal Chief. However, after Cody tore his pectoral muscle at Hell In A Cell in June, he has been away from the ring. Now, with his recovery time coming to an end, the rumors and predictions have started again. And if a recent report is believed to be true, Cody Rhodes is winning the 2023 Royal Rumble and dethroning Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.
Earlier this week, it was reported that as of now, WWE has no concrete plans regarding the return of The Rock. Well, if that’s not happened, a recent Tweet from “Chris The Wrestling Informer” makes more sense.
Cody Rhodes still reported to win Royal Rumble and dethrone Roman Reigns
Cody Rhodes’ return is due and can happen at any moment now. While some reports claim he will continue his feud with Seth Rollins, some feel he will win Royal Rumble 2023.
Although nothing is official, a recent report might cheer up those who want Cody to headline next year’s Wrestlemania.
Chris The Wrestling Informer recently made a Twitter post where he shed light on the current Royal Rumble plans of WWE’s Creative Team. Chris wrote that as of now, WWE is still keeping Cody Rhodes as the no. 1 choice to win the 2023 men’s Royal Rumble match.
And not just that, The American Nightmare will then go on and dethrone Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. As far as his return is concerned, the Tweet stated nothing is confirmed but Cody could return on the Jan 2nd episode of RAW.

The American Nightmare has had a short but classic run with WWE so far
Making an epic return at WrestleMania 38, Cody Rhodes kickstarted his second WWE run with a victory over Seth Rollins. The two men then went on to have an epic rivalry in the first half of this year. So far, they have wrestled three matches and all three of them were loved by fans and critics.
In fact, The Rock reacted and lauded the Hell in a Cell match of Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes. Unfortunately, The American Nightmare had to miss the second half of 2022 following an injury.

Nevertheless, it seems if The Rock versus Roman Reigns is not happening, WWE might go with The American Nightmare. Though as of now, all of this is nothing but speculation.
