• Cody Rhodes Reveals How It Felt When Triple H Texted To Congratulate Him On Winning The ROH World Title
During a recent appearance on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes talked about winning the Ring of Honor World Title, Triple H texting him to congratulate him on his World Title win & more.
Below are the highlights:
On how the ROH has treated him:
“Everything they’ve done since debuting for ROH, for me, they’ve been firing on all cylinders. They had a 30% growth increase in their company through the year in terms of houses and dollars. They had a great year. And the management they have, Greg Gilleland and Joe Koff, man, they’ve treated me incredibly, incredibly well. I definitely have a sense of loyalty to them because of how wonderfully they’ve treated me.”
On feeling vindicated as WWE didn’t see him as their top guy:
“Yeah, no, vindication is one of my biggest words. I think the greatest revenge you can have is success and it’s more honest than anything else too. I mean, I could tell you all of the great things about WWE, but there is also at the end of the day, WWE didn’t think I was top and I thought I was top. And, to me, these types of moments have made me feel vindication and you kind of get that, ‘look at me now – I told you so’ type [of reactions], but I’m wired to where I don’t know why when these things happen, I don’t know, the world is not enough. I keep wanting more.”
On Triple H texting him to congratulate for winning the ROH World Title:
“The coolest feeling in the world is to have text messages from people in our industry who don’t have to text you. They don’t. And somebody like Triple H telling me, ‘congrats for winning the Ring Of Honor title.’ it makes what we do real. My dad told me, ‘the only real thing that we do is the world title.’ And there are lots of world titles, but that one validated it for me and I was really happy.”
• Reason Behind Baron Corbin Becoming The Constable Of RAW
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, “The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin gained a new role on WWE programming – The Constable of Monday Night RAW.
You can watch it below:
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials had nobody that could feud with Corbin on RAW, that’s why they decided to make him the “constable” of RAW so that he can feud with RAW General Manager Kurt Angle (which already began this week as seen in the above videos) and stay in the spotlight.
