Cody Rhodes finally finished his story as he got his hands on the WWE Universal Championship after ending the giant 1316-day title run of Roman Reigns. "The American Nightmare" achieved "The American Dream" in a Bloodline featuring rules on Night 2 of WrestleMania 40 on Sunday as per USA time. Rhodes won the match by pinfall after implementing a series of Cross Rhodes. 

As expected the match was filled with interventions. Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Solo Sikoa, Seth Rollins and legends like John Cena, The Undertaker and The Rock intervened in the contest. It was slow to kick off but became a cinema-like experience with these superstars coming in.

When Rhodes was closing in, Jimmy Uso came as the first intervention to kick the American Nightmare. Jimmy's twin Jey Uso came to settle scores and speared him on the ramp. Rhodes looked to gain control but another aide of Roman came - Solo Sikoa. He hit Rhodes with a spear Samoan spike combo but when Roman went for the pin, the American Nightmare kicked out.

This led to John Cena coming out in favour of Rhodes, who delivered an attitude adjustment to both Roman and Sikoa. The Rock then came out in support of his cousin Roman and delivered a Rock Bottom to Cena after ducking a punch. Seth Rollins, who was Cody's partner in the Day 1 main event of the tag team contest, then came out in support of the challenger but was hit with a Superman punch by the Tribal chief. Then came a moment when the bell rang and the lights went off as The Undertaker came in and choke-slammed The Rock before the lights went out again and he went off. 

The Tribal chief went to hit Rollins with a chair and lost his focus, which led to Rhodes delivering Cross Rhodes and pinning him for the elusive title.
