Cody Rhodes Recalls Triple H Telling Him He Should Punch A WWE Writer

Triple H once told Cody Rhodes to punch a WWE writer

Professional wrestling is a unique industry, and what wouldn’t fly in normal businesses is less out of the ordinary in wrestling.

Take a story from the new ‘American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes’ documentary, where Rhodes revealed frustration with a WWE writer who was pretending to type during his last run in the company. In a follow up Q&A with Sam Roberts, Rhodes reveals how Triple H suggested he dealt with the offending writer:

“That guy is still a writer here, and I have a great relationship with him - I think he doesn't know it's about him. I'm also like, 'How do you not know? You were fake typing.' I think a lot of wrestlers or superstars all feel, sometimes, helpless. 'We're bound to the creative, we're bound to this writer.' To a degree, there is a structure that you are part of, but we're not helpless. I felt helpless and realised, I'm gonna have to get over that. I'm going to have to stop complaining and actually do something. I just didn't want the thing I did to be outside. I didn't want to leave. I didn't want to be that. Being that and getting outside was the only way. It was the cage that needed to be rattled.

“There is a part that's not in there, Hunter [Triple H] also told me that when I said I want to punch that writer in the face, he said, 'Well, you should.' There was a moment of thinking about, 'I'm going to go do it.' I'd be walking so slow, 'does he know I'm going to punch him in the face.' We weren't fighting in the moment. They took that part out. Big HR problem," said Cody with a laugh.
