Cody Rhodes suffered an undeserving defeat at WrestleMania 39 against Roman Reigns after an interference by Solo Sikoa. If you mostly remember Rhodes just winning for the rest of the year, worry not, you’re not wrong. A tweet by Wrestle Features on X says the same thing.

According to the tweet, “Cody Rhodes finishes 2023 by having the most matches out of anyone in @WWE. Rhodes has lost just 5 matches in 2023, giving the future WWE Champion a win percentage of 95.6%.” This is a really difficult milestone to achieve, especially while fighting the most number of matches as well.
