Cody Rhodes All For WWE To Split The Undisputed WWE Universal Title

Cody Rhodes on board with splitting the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship

Cody Rhodes is set for the biggest match of his life at WrestleMania 39, when ‘The American Nightmare’ takes on the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns for the gold in the main event.

Rhodes has made no secret of his desire to hold the WWE Championship, with fan theories suggesting that WWE should split the championships once more after Reigns united them in victory over Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 night two in 2022. During a conversation with Bart Winkler, Rhodes admitted that he’s open to the titles being split once more:

"What it will take for the titles to eventually be separated is, this happened in boxing years ago, maybe whoever is coming out of WrestleMania… obviously, I want to say with the most confidence in the world that it's going to be me, but maybe who leaves WrestleMania, it's time for perhaps management to step in and make that call so that you never put it on potentially me or potentially Roman Reigns to say, 'I want this one more than the other.’

“Of course, the fan in me, I want my hands on the WWE Championship, it’s the one that [Dusty Rhodes] never got, but it would take someone telling me, 'we have to go this way, both brands need a title.' Once you have them, [Roman Reigns] threw them down in front of me the other day and I felt my heart jump. For real, how sincerely I love these title belts that I've never touched. That's a good time for maybe management to step in. If they did, I'd be all about it," Rhodes said.

Since the original brand split in 2002, WWE have often featured two world championships, and have unified both world titles on three separate occasions.
