Cody Rhodes had high praise for Roman Reigns during his first interview on this week’s episode WWE’s The Bump. Cody said that Roman Reigns is truly over with the audience and that a match between them both is “out there.”

“When I left here, Roman Reigns was on top,” Rhodes said of Reigns’ position in the company. “And I think Roman Reigns was experiencing some of the negative byproduct of being on top. Some of the pushback that a new face, a new individual, but the thing that makes a champion in any company in anything is consistency. And we he said ‘Dallas, Texas, acknowledge me,’ and whether they’re supposed to boo, cheer, whatever it might be, and they acknowledged him? You want to know a term that’s often really overused in what we do? It’s ‘over.’ Oh this guy’s so over, she’s so over. No, over is years and years and years of work to where fans follow you.”

“That’s part of my song,” Rhodes said of his relationship to fans. “I’ll follow you to the end. That’s how I feel about the fans and hopefully that’s a mutual thing. He’s (Reigns) truly gotten over via consistency and via hard work. What he has going now with Paul Heyman and The Usos, it’s a very intimidating presence. It exists. There’s a match out there. That is likely ‘the match’ that exists out there. But before the mach, you have to cross paths in some capacity and we haven’t yet. And I look forward to that.”

Cody Rhodes returned to WWE at WrestleMania 38 and defeated Seth Rollins. He reportedly is the top merchandise seller in WWE. Reigns unified both the WWE Championship and Universal Championship after defeating Brock Lesnar in the main event.
