3 Blockbuster WrestleMania 40 Worthy Feuds Teased On WWE Raw

3 Blockbuster WrestleMania 40 Worthy Feuds Teased On WWE Raw

The Season Premiere of WWE Raw kept everyone on the edge of their seats. The crowning of new Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions not only solidified a rivalry for the near future but also potentially for WrestleMania 40.

Let's take a look at the few feuds that could take place at WrestleMania 40:

#3. Becky Lynch clashes with Rhea Ripley 

Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley are dominant champions and prominent names in the women's division. Becky Lynch is on a vicious streak with her NXT Women's Championship.

Both Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley have had impressive runs in the company and sprung to the top within a couple of years of association. Rhea Ripley and Becky Lynch have never faced each other in a WWE ring.

However, during a couple of incidents in 2022, Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley confronted each other in backstage segments and even had a staredown on the ramp, hyping fans for a blockbuster feud, but then it died down.

On the October 16, 2023, episode of WWE Raw, Indi Hartwell approached Becky Lynch, citing that she should be the one to get a title match. After wrapping up business there, Becky Lynch turned around only to be met by Rhea Ripley. Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley did not exchange words but had a staredown.

Given Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley's individuality and dominance, a match of this magnitude must happen at WrestleMania 40.

#2. The Usos pitted against each other

The Usos brotherhood concluded at WWE Night of Champions 2023 when they attacked Roman Reigns. In the following weeks, it seemed there would be some reconciliation, which failed to happen. Jimmy Uso proclaimed his displeasure at Roman Reigns' measures but continued to support him in his actions, which he proved at WWE SummerSlam 2023.

Jey Uso was then drafted to Monday Night Raw while Jimmy Uso stayed on Friday Night SmackDown. Additionally, on the October 16, 2023, edition of WWE Raw, Jimmy Uso cost his brother Jey Uso and Cody Rhodes the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles. Thus cementing a solid foundation for a long-standing rivalry.

There were reports of Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso feuding against each other at WrestleMania 40, but things seemed to progress much quicker in Roman Reigns' absence. However, this setting is deemed fit for long-term storytelling and family-consuming rivalry.

#1. A feud between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes

Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes first clashed at WrestleMania 39, with Roman Reigns emerging triumphant. Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns have been at loggerheads, and Cody Rhodes has not forgotten his quest to hold the WWE Championship around his waist. Cody Rhodes won the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Title with Jey Uso but lost them to The Judgment Day on Monday Night Raw. 

This happened due to an interruption by Jimmy Uso, who attacked his brother Jey Uso. There is a lot of speculation on Paul Heyman or Roman Reigns being the mastermind behind the attack. Before Roman Reigns' return on the October 13, 2023, edition of WWE SmackDown, Paul Heyman and Rhea Ripley agreed on the two groups allying.

WWE has been pushing Cody Rhodes to the top spots ever since his return in 2022. Hence, making a rematch between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes a long time in the making. Jimmy Uso's interference on Monday Night Raw, in Cody Rhodes losing a title within 10 days, sowed the seeds for him going after Roman Reigns again, and what is a bigger stage to do it than at WrestleMania 40?
