In an interview with Busted Open Radio, Steve Austin talked about the match between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes, in which Reigns ended up winning. Although most wanted to see Rhodes on the throne and with the belt, WWE executives had slightly different ideas.
Steve Austin, the legend of this sport, believes that the right thing was done. “I completely thought that they made the right decision,” Austin said, as quoted by pwmania.com “I really respect the hell out of Cody for what he did when he walked away from WWE and found himself.
He went down to AEW and then came back or was hired back, however that works”.

Austin had nothing but praise for Rhodes and what he's done in a short amount of time. His arrival in WWE, the injury, and then the match with Reigns is a really great story.
Austin believes that winning the belt would still be too much. “Anyway, he gets injured. He blows out a pec. He competes in the Royal Rumble. Now he comes back and he gets in the main event with Roman. I just think it was so storybook.
It would have been so cliche to put the belt on him. Has he earned the opportunity to be there? Yeah, but would he have been the right guy, right now, trying to take out Roman Reigns? I just think not." Roman Reigns once again confirmed what qualities he possesses.
“Roman is so fire and is so money right now. Cody is going to be there. To me, it made me respect Cody more when you’re laying down there looking at the lights and you know that story is going to be completed one of these days, but it ain’t gonna be right here and it was for the right reasons, and the reasons were business”.
