Seth Rollins removed from commercial for next SmackDown, Cody Rhodes added to several live events
Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes have had their upcoming appearance schedules updated by WWE.
Rollins spent the majority of Road to WrestleMania desperately trying to get booked on the card. He fell short in a challenge for the RAW Tag Team Titles, in a match for talk show hosting duties against Kevin Owens, and against AJ Styles for a chance to become Edge’s new opponent. After a tantrum, Rollins was called out by Vince McMahon, who told him he would get his own special main event at WrestleMania against a mystery opponent.
That mysterious opponent was the returning Cody Rhodes, who would beat Rollins by pinfall. Although WWE promotions suggest the match will be repeated in an upcoming Saturday Night Main Event show, it also suggests that Rollins will no longer appear on the next episode of SmackDown, a show he was previously announced for.
Ronda Rousey remains on the Friday night show’s lineup, with a match for the WWE Undisputed Universal Title between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre set to headline Saturday night’s Main Event card.
Cody Rhodes has been added to the lineup of several WWE live events
Fresh off of his highly anticipated return to WrestleMania 38, Cody Rhodes appears to be returning as a full-time contender, having been confirmed for multiple live appearances in the coming weeks.
Rhodes was added to multiple Saturday Night Main Event and Sunday Stunner shows, as well as multiple SmackDown tapings throughout April and May, including in Augusta in her home state of Georgia on April 24.
Another notable name that has been added to many of the promotional materials for WWE’s upcoming European tour is Gunther, who will feature in London, Paris and Leipzig.
