WWE's WrestleMania 39 Main Event Between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes Will Break a Years-Old Record

WWE's WrestleMania 39 main event between Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes is virtually guaranteed to break a years-old record this Sunday at SoFi Stadium. Both men enter the match on massive winning streaks, as Reigns hasn't suffered a one-on-one pinfall loss since Baron Corbin beat him at the TLC pay-per-view on Dec. 15, 2019 (1,204 days). Meanwhile, Rhodes has gone undefeated since returning to the company at WrestleMania 38 and hasn't suffered a defeat in a WWE ring since the May 16, 2016 taping of Superstars against Zack Ryder (better known as Matt Cardona). That technically makes his WWE unbeaten streak nearly twice as long as Reigns' at 2,522 days (if you count all the way up to this Sunday). 

This week's Monday Night Raw saw Rhodes take down The Bloodline's Solo Sikoa in the main event. He'll have one last face-to-face confrontation with Reigns on this week's SmackDown before their big match.

If Rhodes wins, there's plenty of speculation that he'll try to revive the WWE Championship's classic Winged Eagle design. Rhodes addressed that idea while on The Bump last month.

"Through my youth, the WWE that I was watching was really synonymous with the Winged Eagle," Rhodes explained. "I think there's a lot of people who love the Winged Eagle design, some people like the Big Eagle (the Attitude Era design) but the Winged Eagle was for me. Today's design with the giant W is also incredibly special, it's this walking billboard for the promotion, but it was just a pipe dream. I post that and I don't want people to think I'm calling a shot, I don't want people to think I'm going into business for myself. The reality is I was able to change the Intercontinental Championship once before, which seemed absurd. And if I'm able to make it to the finish line, biggest WrestleMania of all time, SoFi (Stadium) in Hollywood, if I'm able to get to the finish line and get my hands on these things that, like I've said, have eluded my family up until now, it would just kind of be a fun...maybe it's just a pipedream. Maybe it's just a thought, a glimmer, but maybe it'd be fun to say let's just boil them down and bring back the Winged Eagle."
