Rhodes was victorious in the bout, winning the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. When the dust settled, Rhodes celebrated with members of the WWE roster, including Cena.

"I told him in the ring [at WrestleMania XL], I'm sure he'll relay this message, when I got to embrace him, he had the championship in his right hand. I said, 'Do you feel that?' He said, 'Yes.' 'Do you feel how heavy it is?' 'Yes.' I said, 'It will get heavier every day.' That is the burden you bear trying to craft the path to being the greatest of all time. I hope, and this should be the goal for the business, every performer should pass the torch up. I hope a year from now, two years from now, three years from now, we can all sit here and be an advocate that Cody Rhodes is the greatest of all time. That's the way it should work," said Cena on the Pat McAfee Show.

After Cody lost at WrestleMania 38, Cena told him to act like the champion even if he didn't have the title.
