• Cody Rhodes Still Has Anger Towards Triple H
Cody Rhodes has noted in the past that WWE Hall Of Famer Triple H is his favorite wrestler, but he’s also angry at him.
The anger stems from Cody’s first run in WWE, where Cody wanted to be more than just the Stardust character and wanted to leave the company. Triple H then reminded Cody of all the things he did for his father, Dusty Rhodes.
After joining All Elite Wrestling, the first thing Cody did at AEW’s first show, Double Or Nothing 2019, was smash HHH’s throne.
Cody met Triple H backstage at WrestleMania 38 and said it was a touching moment.
During a recent interview on the Out Of Character podcast, Cody had the following to say about his interaction with Triple H and his anger towards The King Of Kings:
“In the media scrum, I did not 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.
But also too, I admit that 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 never will. But it was a touching moment.”
