Cody Rhodes Spells Out Why He Dislikes Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins Cody Rhodes Hell In A Cell

Cody Rhodes made headlines recently when he revealed that he nearly got into a backstage fight with Seth Rollins and has now explained exactly why he does not like the former Universal Champion.

Rhodes previously suggested that a situation with Seth Rollins was the closest he’d ever got to physicality backstage. Rollins has also commented on that ordeal and says he wasn’t comfortable with Rhodes’ making that public knowledge.

Now speaking to Ariel Helwani on BT Sport, Cody Rhodes was asked if his ill feelings towards Rollins were legitimate, and although The American Nightmare won’t use the word hate, he definitely does not like the star and thinks it all stemmed from professional jealousy from years gone by:

“I’m not gonna fight Seth backstage. We’re not gonna walk by each other and fight each other. I’m not gonna throw a water bottle as I walk by him, but we really do not like one another. I don’t think there’s a specific reason other than perhaps professional jealousy.

“I was very jealous of him. I watched the heist of the century. It’s one of the most amazing WrestleMania moments of all time. Now we’re in a situation where he’s wrestling Logan Paul in a huge marquee matchup and I’m on top of the card, so I think maybe it’s shifted a bit. I can’t speak for him. You might want to ask him.

“I like Becky [Lynch]. She’s great and wonderful, but yeah, he and I do not like each other. I don’t think we’ve ever liked one another. I’m gonna go ahead and say it’s just a lifelong dislike. We don’t say hate. No hate. Yeah, a lot of respect, though. I often tell people I think he’s one of the top three in the world. I really, really do.”

Cody Rhodes also gave his thoughts about AEW World Champion MJF one day joining WWE and says he just wants the star to be happy.
