Cody Rhodes parted ways with WWE back in 2016 and after that, he underwent a severe change in character and in-ring psychology. He honed his craft in promotions such as ROH and NJPW before starting AEW as one of the top stars during its initial year. Rhodes also has no regrets over taking numerous shots at Triple H.

Cody Rhodes was very serious when it came to his war against WWE, which was evident in him destroying Triple H’s throne during AEW Double Or Nothing 2019. He took shots at Triple H in the past as well apart from that.

Despite this, Rhodes has gone on record to say that Triple H is his favorite wrestler. While speaking to Ariel Helwani, Cody Rhodes revealed that he has no regrets over taking numerous shots at Triple H over the past few years.

“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.”

Cody Rhodes also has a highly complex, multi-year commitment in his contract. He also had a brief interaction with Seth Rollins on Monday Night RAW this week. We’ll have to see how Rhodes will be booked in the coming weeks.
