Former WWE wrestler Road Dogg recently discussed the decision to have Cody Rhodes lose to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania on the latest episode of the Oh… You Didn’t Know? podcast. He explained that although fans might argue that Rhodes should have won the title at the event, it would not have been smart business. Road Dogg added that Rhodes went through the Royal Rumble and everyone else to reach the champion without facing any adversity, so giving him the title then might have made it seem like he did not earn it.

However, Road Dogg acknowledged that Rhodes has had an impressive career and has changed the game in the industry. He pointed out that Rhodes is also an entrepreneur in the sports entertainment industry, which is a rare feat. Road Dogg’s comments suggest that while Rhodes may not have won the title at WrestleMania, he has still accomplished a great deal in the industry and deserves recognition for his contributions.

The Road Dogg stated –

“The argument is a legitimate one to go back now that history has told that story and go, ‘Okay. Should he have got it then? Should he won it then?’ Like, man, I don’t think that’s smart business. I think that’s great booking if you’re a fan, but I don’t think it’s smart business. If you tell the story and go, ‘The end,’ close the book. Then, ‘Okay, now we got to start over,’ I just feel like this was just a chapter closing.

He came in, and this has been said by some people that speak about wrestling that kinda know what they’re talking about, he came in, and he had no adversity. He went right through the Rumble, right through everybody, and right to the champion. So the argument could be made, ‘Man if you just give it to him now, did he earn it?’ Yes, he has over the extension of his career, for sure, if you can tell that whole story, and they have tried to tell that whole story as much as they could if you see in the promos, they talk a lot about what all he’s done because that’s a really cool part of his story is what he has accomplished in this industry.

By himself, you know what I mean? Like, I mean, yes, he’s had some help. Yes, his father was a wrestler, his brother, all that. Man, he came in and changed the game a little bit, and kudos to him for that.”

“So really, it’s a bigger picture conversation. Whether he has the title around his waist right now or not, let’s just stop and think about what Cody’s done and accomplished from a human standpoint. Holy mackerel, this dude’s an entrepreneur in the industry of sports entertainment, and that has never existed before.”
