Cody Rhodes Discusses Current Relationship With Triple H WWE

Cody Rhodes has commented on his relationship with Triple H, following his previous shots at the current WWE Chief Content Officer.

While Rhodes was with AEW, the American Nightmare threw shade on The Game on multiple occasions. Rhodes notably got the wrestling world talking when he smashed a familiar looking throne with a sledgehammer during AEW’s inaugural pay-per-view, Double or Nothing 2019.

The former AEW EVP left the promotion in early 2022 and returned to WWE that April at WrestleMania 39. Triple H received a big promotion while Rhodes was on the shelf, with The Game taking over WWE creative that July.

Speaking with Ariel Helwani, Rhodes noted that he and Triple H have yet to hit a road bump with one another.

Describing their relationship, Rhodes said:

“So far? A plus. In terms of not, I hope this isn’t too divulgent, nothing has been forced. I’m not trying to force my ideas or a friendship.

“He’s not trying (either). Everything he has said to me, or we’ve talked about has been very deliberate. Very much I get the sense (that) he’s expecting me to hit a home run every time.

“(I’m like) ‘Okay,’ I have had great education and great experience. I want to go out there and do that every time.”

“We’ve yet to really hit a road bump. They’re gonna come. I keep using different sports analogies, but we’re gonna fumble the ball. We’re gonna have these moments.

“They’re gonna come but right now, it’s been a very good relationship. Because it’s not performative. Right, it’s you call the play, and I’m gonna go out there and try to do the damn thing.

“I’ve really enjoyed that because I don’t think there was necessarily bad blood. But that was a contentious thing on Wednesdays in a way for a while.

“If anything, I hope he would look at that and respect the hustle. I don’t think I’ve ever said respect the hustle. Respect what I was out there trying to do. Cause what I was out there trying to do then was for everybody.”

Rhodes is currently slated to challenge for Roman Reigns’ WWE Undisputed Universal Championship at WrestleMania 39.

Ahead of then, Reigns will defend the gold against Sami Zayn at Elimination Chamber.
