Cody says Triple H congratulated him for winning the ROH World Title

The American Nightmare has had an incredibly successful career outside of the WWE. Cody has become a top star around the world, joining the Bullet Club back in late 2016, and has dominated both ROH and New Japan Pro Wrestling.

When Cody defeated Christopher Daniels for the ROH World Championship, he finally gained the recognition he felt he deserved. On the E&C Podcast, Cody told Edge and Christian about receiving a congratulatory text from The Game.

The coolest feeling in the world is to have text messages from people in our industry who don’t have to text you. Somebody like Triple H telling me ‘congrats’ for winning the ROH World title…it makes what we do real.

My dad always told me that was the only real thing we do..the World Title.

In just a few years, Cody has gone from a mid-carder in the WWE to a headliner in almost every company he’s appeared for. Winning the World Championship meant a lot to him, and it’s great to see someone he respects so much in Triple H give him props for finally achieving his dream.

    Like father like son. Dusty too did not make his name in the WWE it was in WCW. But I do think we have not seen the last of Cody in the WWE. But not until HHH is in charge which I think will happen in 2020 when the XFL start up. I believe HHH will be retire from in ring wrestling and will be in full control of the WWE.

    He has proved with creative control, he can carve out an interesting and engaging character.
    He has said though in the past that while WWE gave him some pretty lame characters, he could have done more to make them interesting, and accepts that he is as much to blame for his lack of depth and success in WWE.
    If he does ever go back, I am sure that he would not be so accepting of angles he dislikes and would give a lot more input into characters and matches. He would not have to be awkward or difficult to work with, just be more vocal. Kind of like Jericho is.

    I agree. I however did enjoy his inring work, but also thought he was a bland character. Stardust was cool at first, but then fell flat, fairly quickly. It’s fantastic how far hes come outside the WWE and I’m sure hell continue to grow and dominate. He’ll be back in the WWE eventually, I think. Especially with Hunter gaining more and more traction with his power. Eventually hes going to be able to talk Vince into chilling out or going with a certain idea.

    I was never the biggest fan of his in WWE as I always found him a bit bland as a character, but since leaving WWE I have gained so much respect for Cody. Here is a guy who was unhappy with his position in WWE, so asked for his release. Then after leaving, instead of bad mouthing them constantly like so many do (Ryback springs to mind here), he is always complimentary of them and even says that his position in WWE was just as much his fault as it was WWE’s.
    The guy is a true professional and is truly his fathers son.

    There is absolutely no reason for him to keep WWE on side as he as proved he does not need to go back there, so it is not about him sucking up in case he needs to go back. So you know he is genuine.
