Cody Rhodes has revealed whether or not he regrets all of his shots at Triple H, following his WWE Return.
During his time with AEW, Rhodes made numerous jabs at The Game, most notably destroying a throne with a sledgehammer at Double or Nothing 2019.
Speaking with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Cody recalled a recent conversation with Triple H.
Noting that his only regret is that they won’t be able to face off in the ring, Cody said:
“Hell no, no, because that’s what he would have done. One of the things I remember, I don’t think I was even Stardust yet. I ran up to Gorilla position, I’m huffing and puffing. I was made about something, but not really mad, and I knew I should speak to Vince or Hunter.
“I spoke to Hunter and he said, ‘I totally understand,’ he had his headphones on and was taking time off this segment to have this conversation, ‘Maybe, go in the writer’s room right now and rattle the cages. Make a scene. You’re not getting in trouble, go in and let them know.’
“He wasn’t passing me off as much as he sincerely was…the door has their names on it, knock and say your peace. What’s the worst that can happen? Doing this without far. It’s very easy to be scared.
“We’re surrounded by giants in the business. Vince is a giant in the business. Undertaker, Steve Austin. We have to get ours. We have to keep the pot going and grow into these top stars ourselves. I don’t think I’d change a thing. I definitely wouldn’t change the throne.
“Ultimately, I think the regret is that it doesn’t look like we’ll get to clash. That’s life, but for him to be the last one to come on the bus before I walked out and to see one of my closest friends, I hate saying he’s a friend, QT Marshall, to see him see that moment and to see my wife see that moment, that was the heaviest spot of the night.
“All that aside, I broke the throne, I talked all this trash, I stand by what I did. I think it was what needed to happen. I was angry, I’m still angry. Not with him. He was somebody who helped teach me. I got in there with Taker, Shawn (Michaels), Hunter right at the end when they were active.
“Just in ten days, what I learned from Undertaker was unbelievable knowledge that I teach at my school now. Also, say what you want, Hunter may think I’m dork and may not have the respect and admiration for me that I have for him. He did take care of my dad.
“I can smash all the thrones in the world, that is one I can’t payback. Maybe the only way I can come close is to be here and deliver on a high level for him.”
Recently announcing that he will never wrestle again, Triple H left his boots in the ring after opening WrestleMania 38 Sunday.
William Regal has since reacted to Triple H leaving his boots behind, which you can read more about right here.
