• Seth Rollins Took A Shot At AEW At WrestleMania 38
At last night’s WrestleMania 38 Saturday, Cody Rhodes was revealed as Vince McMahon’s hand-picked mystery opponent for Seth Rollins.
Cody ended up defeating Seth in his first WWE match in 6 years.
During the match, Seth took a shot at AEW (Cody’s former company) by implying that All Elite Wrestling is the minor leagues when he said:
“Welcome back to the big leagues, b***h!”
After his victory over Seth, Cody was interviewed on The Ringer Wrestling Show, where he said the following about his WrestleMania experience and feeling vindicated:
“Long story short, the reason I got into this whole thing was to be like my dad. That specter is so heavy, I veered away from it. To be able to do one jab, and [the fans] knew [it was a tribute to Dusty Rhodes], I just felt such a rush.
I hate when people say [Dusty] must be proud of you. I know they mean well, but he’s not here, and I wish he was here to see it.
I feel such a responsibility to carry the name, and the whole thing finally felt like, ‘you know what? I can do it.’ I am no longer going to be the Ugly Duckling of the family.
I can do it, I can carry the Rhodes name, I can carry it in Texas, on a show featuring Charlotte, Steve Austin, freakin’ Undertaker, and I felt good about it.
Everyone kept asking me all day, ‘what do you expect?’ And of course, I was hoping they’d be happy [with my performance]. I really didn’t want to put any expectations out there. I didn’t even look out there, didn’t walk up the ramp before the show. I didn’t see anything. Coming up on that lift was the first time I saw the grandeur, the Showcase of Immortals, all the things that WrestleMania is.
And man, that’s just the feeling I’ll chase for the rest of my life. If we don’t get another one as a wrestler, we’re always chasing. When am I getting the next one? Gosh, if I don’t get another one, I feel so vindicated. So vindicated.
To go from nowhere on the card, no desire to have me [on the card], to not being prioritized, and that’s no knock on anybody. And to go out on the wilderness, and do everything I could to make noise – change our business of pro wrestling or sports entertainment. I felt like they appreciated it, and I appreciated them.”
