A comment from Triple H might rub AEW fans the wrong way!
WWE released a documentary on Cody Rhodes titled “American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes” on Peacock today.
The documentary features the journey of Cody in the pro wrestling world, including his time in AEW and WWE.
In the documentary, Cody revealed that he left AEW due to a personal issue, but refused to go into detail for it. He also shot down some rumors about his departure.
Below is what he said:
“I can’t tell you why I left AEW. I can’t. And I won’t. But I’ll tell you the reasons that were said, but didn’t actually matter.
I didn’t leave AEW because of money. And I didn’t leave AEW because of other talents. I left AEW because of a personal issue — that’s it.
The byproduct of me leaving AEW is to go after the biggest and first dream I ever had in my life.”
WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H also commented on Cody leaving AEW for WWE in 2022, and said that he wouldn’t be able to achieve his dream of becoming the World Champion of the biggest wrestling promotion in AEW, calling it a “secondary promotion.”
“It’s taking that gamble again and saying – I didn’t grow up dreaming of being the champion or the face of a secondary promotion. I wanted to be the WWE Champion.”
