Greetings everyone, and welcome to “Reyvelations”.

The WWE Universe was left reeling by the Raw after Wrestlemania 40, which was full of unexpected events, excitement, and a look into the future.

The COO Paul “Triple H” Levesque began the evening by praising Wrestlemania 40 for its enormous success and announcing the start of a new chapter in WWE history.

The unveiling of the "American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes as the new Undisputed WWE Universal Champion marked a significant turning point in the evening. In remembrance of Rhodes, Triple H mounted the stage and unveiled an emotional multimedia package that followed his ascent to the summit.

Visibly moved, Rhodes accepted the encouragement gracefully and even took a minute to praise Roman Reigns for his historic 3+ year title reign. Even the crowd acknowledged the “Tribal Chief” by chanting in great respect and admiration, “Thank You, Roman.”

Acknowledge the "Tribal Chief"

Although Roman Reigns was unfortunately pinned by Cody, his legendary reign as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion will not be forgotten. Ever since he returned to the WWE during the height of the pandemic as a heel to appear at Wrestlemania for the last time as a champion, it speaks to his work ethic, passion, and love for the company.

If it wasn’t for him, the WWE would be a distant memory, fighting for scraps to stay on top. Before I continue further, let’s take a moment to acknowledge your “Tribal Chief” with this video package below:

After Cody’s powerful statement about being a champion, things took a huge turn when none other than The Rock, the “Final Boss,” showed up. The Philadelphia crowd went wild with screams and jeers as the iconic figure made his presence known, setting the stage for an incredible experience.

The Rock immediately initiated a conversation with Cody Rhodes, exchanging sharply charged remarks

The Rock was unfazed by the boisterous greeting and even used his signature charisma to return the crowd's hatred. The Rock put Cody Rhodes on the defensive for a potential title bout in an intense scene that had fans on the edge of their seats.

What’s more, he gave Rhodes a strange object as a farewell gesture and spoke the intriguing words, “You broke my heart,” before leaving the arena. We may not what that object is, but it must give Cody something to remember and not forget about their inevitable encounter soon.

Last Words

A major turning point in this segment was when Cody Rhodes emerged as the leader. What we can expect from this new rivalry between Cody and The Rock will only get better. After the “Final Boss” returns from Hollywood, he will come for Rhodes.

It doesn’t matter if Rhodes is a champion or not (we all know The Rock wants the title).

The Roman Reigns era may be over, but there will be a final story that is still being written. Whether we like him or not, Roman deserves his flowers for carrying the entire company on his back for 3+ years.

The Cody "Crybaby" Rhodes era has just begun.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the next chapter of this compelling story, with The Rock’s challenge setting up what is going to be a legendary rivalry for the ages.

One thing is certain, as Wrestlemania 40 ended: the WWE Universe is in for an incredible adventure.

As the “Final Boss” famously says, “Enjoy the ride that The Rock is taking you on.”

That’s all I have for you today!
