There was a huge disappointment among the most of the fans about WWE’s decision to have The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Title over Cody Rhodes in the main event of the second night of WrestleMania 39 earlier this month in LA.
But WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin wasn’t one of them, as he loved the finish of the match. While speaking with Sports Illustrated, Steve Austin discussed about the ending of the match that we saw outside interference from Solo Sikoa, Paul Heyman, The Usos, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn.
Stone Cold Steve Austin stated that main event was built perfectly with Cody Rhodes trying of finish the story against Roman Reigns. He further stated that he loved the finish of the match and wouldn’t have changed a thing.
“I loved the finish,” says Austin. “I loved all of it. Roman is so good right now. The story was there—Cody coming back from injury, coming back into the fold after he left from AEW, and putting himself in the position he’s in now, overcoming all this adversity as part of one of the most famous wrestling families that’s ever been in the business, and trying to finish the story against Roman.”
Austin added, “I watched both nights of WrestleMania 39 very intently. To me, you can’t take that belt off Roman right now. You want to get it to Cody somehow, someway, some time—but now’s not the time.”
“Just thinking about that finish, I thought it was definitely the right call. I loved the outside interference. You didn’t know what was coming next. That spike to the throat, for me, it was money.”
