Cody Rhodes is expected to be revealed as Vince McMahon’s chosen opponent for Seth Rollins at WWE WrestleMania 38 this weekend. Following his departure from AEW last month after the two sides couldn’t reach an agreement on terms for a new deal, Rhodes started talking with WWE regarding a return and has reportedly signed a deal with them.

While speaking with Denise Salcedo, Dave Meltzer was asked what the reaction would be if WWE swerved the fans with someone else other than Rhodes at WrestleMania 38. This is where he noted that he knows people close to Rhodes who think he may still back out of returning.

“Depending on who it is, it better be somebody good because…everyone expects it and they kind of have to deliver it I suppose. If it’s not him, it’s his choosing, it’s not theirs. They believe it’s him. They believe that’s the guy. If for whatever reason he backs out because he’s going to back out, I don’t expect that to happen, but I know people close to him who do so what the hell. We'll have to see how it plays out.”
