WWE WrestleMania XL: Early Main Event Plans Leaked

WWE has something BIG cooking for WrestleMania XL's main event...

Cody Rhodes Gunther

Cody Rhodes v s. Gunther could be being lined up as a potential WrestleMania XL main event.

WRKD Wrestling reports that WWE has held early discussions over the match, which may go down at next year's Showcase of the Immortals. Per the report, Rhodes and the reigning Intercontinental Champion are interested in working together, with Cody and Gunther currently seen as Raw's top babyface and heel respectively.


Per WRKD Wrestling:-

While it’s still early, discussions have taken place for #WWERaw’s main event for WrestleMania 40 to potentially be Cody Rhodes vs. Gunther. Both superstars have expressed interest in working with each other in the past and are seen as the top face and heel on the Raw roster.

Gunther and Rhodes had an appetite-whetting showdown in this year's men's Royal Rumble, with their exchanges catching considerable acclaim from fans and critics in the aftermath. Now, following the 2023 Draft, the duo are housed on the same WWE roster, making Raw their home.


Rhodes failed to dethrone Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. At the same event, Gunther successfully defended his Intercontinental Title against Drew McIntyre and Sheamus.

WWE's 40th Show of Shows, WrestleMania XL, takes place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's Lincoln Financial Field on 6 and 7 April 2024.
