Cody Rhodes teases that he’ll make changes to the Undisputed WWE Universal title if he wins at Wrestlemania 40

Cody Rhodes is scheduled to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal title at Wrestlemania 40. While speaking at the WWE World panel on Thursday, Cody commented on his potential victory…

“I think the type of champion I’d be for starters, from a logistical standpoint, is I would be on both Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown. I don’t know, you guys like how the title belt itself looks? Then maybe, again, don’t want to get a cart before a horse here, I have to beat the greatest champion in the history of our business, Roman Reigns. But if I do, maybe we change how that title looks, too. Really, if I could do anything as champion, I would want you guys to have fun. That is 100% what I’m in the business of doing, making you guys happy, and I’m blessed and honored to do that. So that’s what I look forward to doing, and I hope we have a great weekend, all of us together.”

“I knew, I’d say I knew at four. I’d say particularly at eight years old, when I saw the picture of him holding the WWWF Championship. He had just won the match against ‘Superstar’ Billy Graham, but he didn’t win in a way that he could take the title, and that was the big, ‘Hey, I wanna get this,’ the belt that ultimately Roman has now that we call the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Which, if I win this thing on Sunday, we are not calling it this long-winded designation. It’s just the WWE Championship. But I knew then because that was my first big dream and goal was to win it and hand it to him and tell him, ‘Nobody can take it away from you now.’ It’s moments and events like that.” (quotes courtesy of Colin Tessier)

Cody previously commented on wanting to bring back the “Winged Eagle” WWE title design.
