WWE WrestleMania 39 Night 2 Full Results: Roman Reigns Defeated Cody Rhodes

Roman Reigns successfully defended his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39 Night 2 main event.

Cody Rhodes surprised WWE fans by making his return to the company at WrestleMania 38 after being away for six years. During his absence, he established himself by competing in various other promotions and co-founding All Elite Wrestling in January 2019. At the same event, Roman Reigns became the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion by retaining SmackDown’s Universal Championship and winning Raw’s WWE Championship. 

After the event, Rhodes announced his return to win the WWE Championship not just for himself, but also in honor of his late father, Dusty, who never won the title. However, Rhodes was sidelined for several months due to a pectoral injury in June. He made a triumphant comeback at the 2023 Royal Rumble, winning the men’s Royal Rumble match and earning a chance to face Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 39 in the main event of Night 2. 

While Rhodes aimed to bring honor to his family by winning the championship, Reigns and his special counsel, Paul Heyman, made the match personal by claiming that Dusty considered Reigns as the son he always wanted, despite Cody being his favorite son. Rhodes confronted Reigns on SmackDown, claiming that he would overcome the odds once again and win at WrestleMania. Reigns reiterated Heyman’s statement and added that he would teach Rhodes anything Dusty had not taught him. This match also marked Reigns as the first wrestler to defend a world championship at three consecutive WrestleMania events during the same reign.

At WrestleMania 39 Night 2 main event, The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns defeated The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes via pinfall and successfully retained his Undisputed WWE Universal championship.
