It’s actually pretty hard to imagine. You’re Cody Rhodes. You’ve just ended the longest WWE title reign most of us have ever witnessed. It took him two consecutive WrestleMania main events, overcoming Bloodline rules along the way. But there he was, center of the ring in Philadelphia, finishing that part of his story. He had plenty of people in the ring celebrating his life long dream. Not everyone he wanted to be there could be, of course. Some, like brother Dustin, are under contract with AEW-zero chance they’d be on television in the ring at WrestleMania.


But, after it was all said and done, and Cody Rhodes has had some time to reflect? He does have one regret. And honestly, it’s one that might surprise you, if you don’t know Cody Rhodes all that well. The American Nightmare brought up this regret on a recent podcast appearance.

And, in case you don’t yet want to listen to that? Cody Rhodes regrets not having Shawn Spears in the ring post-WrestleMania 40 to celebrate. Spears was formerly Tye Dillinger in NXT, but was reborn in AEW as Shawn Spears (which suits him better, obviously). And, unless you don’t pay attention to NXT, Spears has recently returned to NXT, but keeping the Spears persona with him.

It was nice to hear just how much Spears meant to Cody. The two obviously worked together while in All Elite Wrestling. The current champ on SmackDown noted how happy he was to be seeing Spears again on the black and gold brand. While he didn’t bring him into the ring to commemorate the big win, the two did catch up and share a post-match moment. It isn’t as epic as sharing the WrestleMania ring, but getting this much love from Cody has to still be pretty awesome.
