Triple H On Cody Rhodes Smashing The Throne In AEW: I Laughed About It Then

Despite popular belief, Triple H had no issues with Cody Rhodes smashing a replica of his throne.

WWE COO Triple H was a recent guest on Allan & Carly. When asked about The American Nightmare smashing a replica of his throne at AEW Double or Nothing and if they laugh about it now, The Game admitted that he laughed when it happened. Hunter even went as far as to say if he had been in Cody’s shoes, he would have done the same thing.

“I laughed about it then,” Triple H admitted. “You know, people make that stuff out to be so much more than it is to me. If I was in his shoes, I would’ve done the same thing. And it’s one of the things I love about Cody is I’ve watched Cody go from being a kid in this business, and I don’t mean that as disrespectful. Just literally a kid, his dad was, in some ways, a mentor to me.

“We started NXT together. He was a big part of that system. I learned a lot from Dusty and sort of sitting under his learning tree as well. And we had a wonderful partnership, and to see him grow from literally this kid to coming in and trying to find his way in the business and come out of his dad’s shadow which was monumental.

“And then gambling on himself to go find himself and find who he was. It wasn’t, and I don’t want people to read into this; it wasn’t about where he went; it was about the journey. It was about him going and finding himself and proving to himself that he could stand outside of his father’s shadow. And it wasn’t this machine trying to make him his dad’s kid or anything else. It was finding himself, and he did that to the point where he was, and he says it in his thing to where he was undeniable.

“I’ve seen that a few times over the years; Drew McIntyre’s another guy, right? Things went sour; he goes and gambled on himself. We had talked about it when he was leaving: go find yourself. When you find yourself, I’ll be watching. When I see you find yourself, We’ll talk, and you’ll come home.”
