Cody Rhodes has expressed a desire to follow a similar career trajectory as Triple H if he continues in the world of professional wrestling for a very good reason.

Cody Rhodes has frequently spoken about Triple H being his favorite professional wrestler and has expressed gratitude for how gracious Triple H has been towards him, despite the friendly jabs Cody made at Triple H during his time away from WWE.

Speaking with Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour, Cody Rhodes spoke highly of his current relationship with Triple H and expressed admiration for him. He also mentioned his aspiration to follow in Triple H’s footsteps if his wrestling career were to transition beyond in-ring competition to a backstage role.

I’m shocked to say…I guess I’m not shocked to say…I never anticipated when we did the breaking of the throne, I think I said ‘pissant body builder’ at one point in my independent [career], it may have been in an AEW rant, something, all of it rattling the cages, all of it in the spirit of trash talk and sports entertainment, but we take this stuff personally and it gets under our skin.”


”He really had no reason to take care of me, and he has been an incredible guide, an incredible mentor. Often, I’ll be standing in Gorilla when something else is on the show and I’ll look at him and there is an understanding, there is a knowledge of, ‘Oh, that was great’ or ‘that wasn’t, what can we do here?’ If I do continue my career in sports entertainment and pro wrestling, I’ve not shared this with anybody, I’ve not even shared this with him, but if I was to continue and it was in a backstage environment, I’d like to kind of perhaps follow in those footsteps. I have a great amount of experience, good and bad, and I can put it to use. We’re not there yet.”

Cody Rhodes will have his sights set on capturing the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, currently held by Roman Reigns, when he faces off against Roman at WrestleMania 40 on Sunday. We will have to wait and see whether he will be able to finish the story.
