WWE star Cody Rhodes’ relationship with WWE and Triple H, in particular, had turned bitter when he decided to leave the company in 2016. He tasted some success in the indies and eventually landed in AEW. He recently opened up on his current relationship with Triple H and how his interactions with The Game have panned out since returning to WWE.
Cody Rhodes reveals conversation with Triple H
‘The American Nightmare’ made a triumphant return to WWE at WrestleMania 38 as the surprise opponent for Seth Rollins. The next night on RAW, the former AEW star made it clear that he had his eyes set on the biggest prize in the company.
Speaking on the Out of Character podcast with Ryan Satin, Cody mentioned that he felt his interactions with Hunter may have seemed just normal.
Here’s what Cody had to say:
“In the media scrum, I didn’t say what that interaction was like because I think that interaction to him may be normal. Here he is, upper management, one of the greatest of all time, going through a lot himself. Maybe just talking to me was another Tuesday. For me, it wasn’t. It was different because he is one of my favorites, Sting, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H. I did model a great portion of what I was doing after how he had modeled a lot of the Game brand.”
Rhodes also spoke about his anger because of the way he was booked. The former TNT Champion mentioned that he wanted to harvest that aggression very differently.
“But also too, I was very, very angry. That anger remains as far as how we saw each other, how he saw me and what I wanted to do. I wanted to channel that anger differently. It was a really touching moment. I didn’t tell anybody what he said, and I won’t. But it was a touching moment.”
We will have to see what the future holds for Rhodes moving forward.
