Cody Rhodes made an appearance on Out of Character with Ryan Satin to discuss a wide range of topics.
During it, he was asked if he saw Triple H at WrestleMania 38 and what was said between them.
“I did. I was kind of careful. I wasn’t too careful. In the media scrum. I didn’t really say what that interaction was like, because I think that interaction to him may just be normal. Here is, you know, upper management and one of the greatest of all time going through a lot himself. Maybe just talking to me was another Tuesday, but for me, it wasn’t. It was different because he is one of my favorites.”
“I really did model a great portion of what I was doing on how he had modeled a lot of The Game brand. But also, I was very, very angry and that anger remains as far as how we saw each other, how he saw me, and what I wanted to do. I wanted to channel that anger differently. But it was just a really touching moment. I didn’t tell anybody what he said, and I won’t, but it was a touching moment.”
“I hear people say you shouldn’t trust them. Above all, I trust myself. I do. I think I’m the best in the world at what we do and that’s because I work at it, I continue to work at it, and I want to and love working at it. But that was a nice moment.”
“You know, it’s not full circle though until it happens in the ring. I know I’m not expecting anything and we’re not talking about anyone coming out of retirement or anything, but wrestlers are this weird, cathartic species where it’s not real until we do it out there. My brother’s a prime example. The closest we’ve ever been to airing our problems out and just sharing our love with one another was when we beat each other half to death and bled literal buckets over each other. There’s something about when you’re in the ring and that experience, so I look forward to that moment, if it ever happens.”
