Hardcore The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time fans notice a reference to the game at WWE's recent WrestleMania 38 event.

p>WWE fans are still coming down from the high of WrestleMania week, where they were treated to the NXT: Stand & Deliver show, The Undertaker being inducted into the Hall of Fame, two nights of WrestleMania, and of course, the always-exciting Raw after WrestleMania. One of the biggest moments from WrestleMania weekend was the return of Cody Rhodes, who made his return to WWE after helping start rival promotion AEW.

Cody Rhodes was the surprise opponent for Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38, with the two stars putting on a critically-acclaimed match that ended with Rhodes getting the victory. Wrestling fans have been buzzing about Cody Rhodes' return to WWE and his performance at WrestleMania, but the whole thing also included a fun reference to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that hardcore Zelda fans may have noticed.

At the start of the WrestleMania 38 match between Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins, WWE commentator Corey Graves dropped a reference to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time by quoting it directly. "The flow of time is always cruel," Graves said. "And a thing that doesn't change with time is just a memory of younger days." Diehard Ocarina of Time fans will recognize this as a famous quote said by Sheik during the game. This served to acknowledge the fact that Cody Rhodes had been gone from WWE for an extended period of time, as well as make reference to Rhodes' affinity for the Zelda franchise.

Cody Rhodes has talked about his love for The Legend of Zelda series on multiple occasions, particularly The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Rhodes has gone as far as to customize his ring gear to include Zelda references, like having a Tri-Force on his boots.

Based on what's happened since WrestleMania 38, it seems like Cody Rhodes will be continuing his storyline with Seth Rollins. Rhodes cut a promo on the latest episode of Raw, which was interrupted by Rollins. However, instead of Rollins attacking Rhodes, the two shook hands. It's possible that they will be joining forces, but it seems the more likely scenario is that there will be another singles match between the two at some point down the line.

As far as Ocarina of Time goes, Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack subscribers can play it on Nintendo's latest console, and an unofficial Ocarina of Time PC port has also been released.
