WrestleMania 39 was a highly anticipated event because fans were wondering if “Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns would maintain his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship title or if Cody Rhodes would put an end to Reigns’ illustrious rule. Many spectators thought Rhodes could topple Reigns, but it was not to be. Reigns won the battle after shocking everyone by giving Rhodes a Samoan Spike and a spear. Fans were let down, but it turned out that this was the intended conclusion all along. Fightful Select claims that Rhodes and Reigns were scheduled to fight this summer before Rhodes’ illness derailed the matchup. There were even suggestions that Rhodes face John Cena instead. There were never any intentions for Reigns to relinquish his world titles or for Rhodes to regain them during Vince McMahon’s time as Chairman, CEO, and Head of WWE Creative. With the victor of WrestleMania 39 still up in the air, plans were set into action for Rhodes to fight in the main event after McMahon’s exit from WWE over sexual accusations. Fans were still treated to a thrilling match between two skilled fighters despite the twist of fate. The drama was amplified by the buildup to the fight, and it was made abundantly obvious that Reigns is a formidable opponent. His reign as the WWE’s undisputed “Tribal Chief” continues to this day, and he is widely considered one of the sport’s all-time best winners.
