Daniel Cormier believes there’s only one choice to beat Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Cody Rhodes. Rhodes has been very open about how he intends to complete his family’s story by winning the title, and Cormier said on The MMA Hour that he believes Rhodes it the guy that has to beat Reigns for the title.

“Cody Rhodes has to beat Roman Reigns,” said Cormier (per Wrestling Inc). “Has to be Cody…. I’m there the whole time [at WrestleMania 39] just hoping he loses because I know how much it’s gonna hurt these people because in their sadness I find joy. Because everybody thinks they know everything, I don’t want to know wrestling to the point that I can’t be surprised, I want to be surprised.”

Rhodes faced Reigns at WrestleMania 39 but came up short thanks to the work of The Bloodline. He has announced that he is entering the Royal Rumble in his quest to get another shot at Reigns.
