Cody Rhodes Discusses Triple H Relationship After Smashing The Throne
Cody Rhodes has revealed if Triple H ever said to him about the infamous AEW throne-smashing moment from 2019.
A lot has changed in the last four years. Double or Nothing in May 2019 was the first AEW pay-per-view event that took place nearly five months before the first Dynamite episode.
At Double or Nothing 2019, Cody faced his brother Dustin Rhodes in an outstanding match that was one of the best matches in the careers of both men. However, what many people were talking about that night was Cody’s entrance.
Instead of simply walking to the ring for his match, Cody Rhodes had a sledgehammer that he used to hit a “throne” that was on the stage. It was seen as a shot at WWE’s Paul “Triple H” Levesque, who has been called the King of Kings and made many entrances in his career where was sitting on a throne.
These days, Triple H is running WWE as the Chief Content Officer that’s running the show creatively and he’s the one that decided to have Cody Rhodes win the Royal Rumble back in January. That will lead to Cody challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship this Sunday at WrestleMania 39.
During an appearance on the SI Media Podcast, Cody Rhodes was asked if he has ever talked about the throne smashing with Triple H.
“It’s not mentioned. I’d love it to be mentioned eventually because I still have my broken throne at the Nightmare Factory.”
“I was in the warehouse the other day with WWE, and there is the ‘throne’ throne. Mine is a replica. There is some imagery, some iconography that could be utilized for a show potentially. I’d love for it to eventually be talked about.”
As he continued, Cody Rhodes talked about how Triple H reached out to him to offer congratulations even though Cody was out of WWE at the time.
“One thing that was really nice, a conversation that him and I did have, and I didn’t share this until recently, was when I won the Ring of Honor World Championship, I hadn’t spoken to (Triple H) since I left, and I just got a one word text from him that said ‘congrats.’”“This is a Ring of Honor show, ends at 1 AM, essentially. Working here, there are a bazillion shows and things you’re doing. I was glad, I found out later, he watched every bit of it.”
“He kept tabs on me. He has his finger on the pulse of what the young fans and the young roster is into.”
