We are now officially heading towards The Showcase of Immortals WrestleMania. This year, WWE will host the 40th edition of the annual mega-spectacle. WrestleMania is widely considered the biggest show in the world of professional wrestling.

This year’s Road to WrestleMania is one of the most twisted editions with some major unexpected shifts on the cards. We saw a major change in the landscape when Royal Rumble 2024 winner Cody Rhodes stepped out from challenging Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40.

The Rock made his much-anticipated return to WWE after Raw Day 1 edition where he challenged to sit at the head of the table. The Rock faced off against Roman Reigns for the first time in their professional wrestling career.

Fans felt like Cody Rhodes was the right person to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, and he got CM Punked by The Rock and WWE. Fans immediately started an internet trend to bring Cody Rhodes back to the title picture. 

“We Want Cody” was trending worldwide for straight three days. WWE Universe also hijacked Monday Night Raw with “WeWantCody” and “Rocky Sucks” chants. 

A recent report from SE Scoop revealed the real plans for WrestleMania 40 and who made the changes to WrestleMania 40 card afterwards.

“I was able to confirm that Rock's original plan was to have a match with Roman. It wasn't the situation we have now. “


“After all the negative reactions, Rock conceded it should be Roman vs Cody. A tag team match at WrestleMania seems to be the direction now, with Rock & Roman vs Cody & Seth. Either way, Cody vs Roman will now main event on night two of Mania 40." Report concludes.

“Hear the rumble, Hear the rumble Run for dem life, when we step into the jungle You fucked around and found out quick, didn’t you boy? You, your little friends, and all your crybabies have no idea what’s coming. The world’s on notice. People’s Champ + Tribal Chief.”
