Jim Ross recently discussed Cody Rhodes' Royal Rumble win
AEW commentator Jim Ross recently spoke about Cody winning the Royal Rumble. He claimed that Rhodes winning the Rumble wasn't a big surprise.
However, JR believes that The American Nightmare was the right guy to win this year's Men's Rumble Match. Jim Ross said:
“So it was an interesting event. Certainly [I’ll] congratulate Cody Rhodes for winning it. It’s not a huge surprise, but does that matter? He was the right guy for the job... Now he’s gonna be able to help the company build their way to WrestleMania in a few weeks. So I thought it was a good show. I thought there were some moments in there.”
Rhodes will face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. Their match was made official on this week's episode of Monday Night RAW after the Royal Rumble winner challenged for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
The Tribal Chief successfully retained his title at the Royal Rumble against Kevin Owens.
