At the WWE Night of Champions press conference, Triple H took a direct question regarding how he could approve Cody Rhodes to compete at the event.
With Michael Cole doing the honors of asking the captivating question:
“We can confirm now that Cody’s arm is broken. So now as an executive who is in charge of the health of our superstars, how can you justify allowing Cody Rhodes to go into a match with Brock Lesnar with a broken arm?”
Triple H’s response would have been shocking in normal circumstances but through the lens of the current storyline, makes all the sense in the world.
Triple H responding:
“Cody does have a broken arm, obviously. Obviously not the best situation in the world. I don’t know if it’s the smartest decision in the world but here’s the thing: Brock Lesnar wants to fight. Cody Rhodes wants to fight.
“Do you want to see them fight? [crowd cheers] Then tomorrow, in this dome, they are going to fight!”
