Last week when Cody Rhodes opened up Raw after WrestleMania, the plan was not for him to kick off the show. In fact, the internal run sheet did not list Rhodes as kicking off the show until after 7 pm eastern.
Fightful is reporting that Rhodes was originally scheduled to close out the show but plans changed late in the day just before they went on the air.
The report states, "On Monday, the Cody Rhodes segment was scripted to go on last, even appearing internally as such until about a little after 7 PM EST. We weren’t told a reason the Cody and Reigns segments were flipped."
What ended up closing the show was Roman Reigns' in-ring promo where he teased that fans would find out his next step during Friday Night SmackDOwn.
Rhodes' promo was reportedly 100 percent scripted despite claims that he was not scripted. Rhodes is scheduled for Raw in a match against The Miz. That may end up being an angle because Rhodes is listed for matches against Seth Rollins at the house shows.
