Cody Rhodes Says It’d Be A “Really Special Thing” To Be In WarGames

Cody Rhodes

As the son of the man that created the WarGames match, Cody Rhodes has already expressed his desire to be in that match.

Prior to 2022, the WarGames match was something that WWE only did for the NXT brand from 2017 to 2021. That changed at last year’s Survivor Series when Triple H took over as the Chief Content Officer that decided the WarGames match was coming to the main roster.

That WarGames match headlined Survivor Series 2022 with The Bloodline’s Roman Reigns, Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa & Sami Zayn beat Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Ridge Holland, Butch & Kevin Owens in a 5-on-5 match with a double cage. The Bloodline got the win when Zayn proved his loyalty to the group.

Unfortunately for Cody Rhodes, he was out of action in the second half of 2022 due to a torn pectoral muscle he suffered in June. If Cody was healthy, perhaps he would have been part of the WarGames, but he also could have been doing something else.

A match like WarGames means a lot to Cody because his late WWE Hall of Fame father Dusty Rhodes created the WarGames match in the 1980s for the NWA. That match had a rough on the cage. In the WWE version of the match, there’s no roof and you can also win by pinfall, instead of just by submission.

While speaking to the New York Post, Cody Rhodes isn’t sure if he’s going to be in a WarGames match this year.

“It’s just not gonna happen. I’m not gonna get picked for the WarGames team or who knows what I could be doing that night. It would be a really special thing if I could.”

The Allstate Arena in Chicago will host this year’s Survivor Series event on Saturday, November 25th.
