Cody Rhodes did something that hasn’t been done in 26 years
– win back-to-back Royal Rumble matches.
Cody, who came in at #15, was in the final four with Drew
McIntyre, last year’s iron man Gunther, and CM Punk and
ended up in a one-on-one against CM Punk as the last two in
After a pedigree by Punk, the Chicago native looked at the
camera and said he didn’t wait 10 years to lose to Dusty’s
kid and was about to hit another GTS but Cody blocked it and
threw him over the top rope.
After pointing to the WrestleMania sign, Cody didn’t take
long to let everyone know which championship he is going
for, turning towards the suite occupied by Roman Reigns in
the stand and pointing at Reigns.
Cody joins Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, and Steve Austin as
the only man to win back-to-back Royal Rumble matches.
