Cody Rhodes Reveals How He Felt After The Fans Turned On The Planned Rock vs. Reigns Match


Cody Rhodes appeared on “The MMA Hour” podcast with Ariel Helwani on Wednesday to promote WWE WrestleMania 40.

During the podcast, the American Nightmare commented on The Rock’s return to WWE, his reaction to the planned Rock vs. Roman Reigns match at WrestleMania 40, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On The Rock’s return: “After I had conceded the main event to The Rock, I still thought, ‘I’m going to find my way there.’ I still thought that. It’s one of the reasons I stayed dead silent. I didn’t want to put an opinion on it. I don’t want to get into the backstage details. What was out there is what was out there. I just felt like I was still going to make it. Then, thankfully, literally millions of people made it so that I did get back.”

On what the Rock said to him after he gave up the spot: “I would rather him tell you. It was something … this is the best answer I can give you. It was something that was extremely touching, but what was being taken away from me was weighing on my mind, that I felt a negative about what was a positive thing being said to me. The Rock can tell you what he said. I’ll leave that for him.”

On how he felt after the fans turned on Rock vs. Reigns: “I just wanted to be quiet. In all the noise, I wanted to be quiet. It might be arrogance, and it might be me being naïve; at that point, I felt like, ‘No, I’ve done everything.’ I kept thinking something good is going to happen from this terrible situation. Something good is going to come of it. I talked to Diamond Dallas Page, and he said, ‘No matter what happens, it will be the best thing that has happened to you.’ When you’re a pessimistic like I am, and he’s the most positive human being on the planet, you kind of want to be like, ‘Stop.’ He wasn’t wrong. Imagine had I not been in the WrestleMania 40 main event. The fire would still be burning. It would be completely out of control at this point. We didn’t have to do that because Hunter heard it. He heard what was going on. That was something that was so loud, he had to hear it, and I was lucky to be in that spot.”

Becky Lynch recently appeared on the “Unlikely With Adrian Hernandez” podcast to discuss a variety of topics, including the process of writing her memoir under a deadline, her recent visit to the White House, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the process of writing the novel under a deadline: “The thing with wrestling is like you think of a promo, you have to write a promo, or you have to have a match, but we’re going live in like two hours. So you’ve got to have something, something has to come out of your mouth, so I love that pressure because you’re sitting there going ‘what do I do? What do I want to say here?’ and you’re like ‘well I’ve got to go out there so I have to write something.’”

On her visit to the White House last month: “They gave me a little glass but I didn’t take it. I did leave something there, I left my book on the bookshelf in the library. But it was so cool, it was very cool like walking around the place thinking of all the history that has happened in there. It was really fascinating, real fascinating place to be.”
