Cody Rhodes Comments On Ricky Starks Being Backstage At WWE Royal Rumble
WWE's Cody Rhodes comments on AEW's Ricky Starks accompanying him at the Royal Rumble.
Having recently made his WWE return from injury to win the 2023 Men's Royal Rumble, Cody Rhodes recently spoke to Alex McCarthy of Sportsmail about various topics - including good friend and AEW star Ricky Starks.
Starks was pictured accompanying Cody behind the scenes at the Royal Rumble event, something the WWE Superstar discussed, explaining:
"What an idiot, though! The locker rooms do have crossovers; people are married to people in other locker rooms, people are friends. This is a kid I started on his journey at my former home, and I obviously want to follow and see his journey - but I will say it's probably best none of my friends visit me at the shows anymore!
"We don't need security cam footage of that poor dude. I hope he didn't get into any trouble - and I don't think he did. He was there to support a friend, who had been absolutely down and out with the pec injury. Ricky was one of the guys that nursed me through it, and helped remind me of who I can be. So I was happy to have him there, and I had some other friends there, but the other friends stayed on the bus because they're not crazy yayhoos!
"Maybe we'll just watch each other at a distance. I don't want to cause any strife between any places. We all love the same thing, it's a squared circle, it's the wrestling industry."
