Cody Rhodes Yet To Speak To Triple H About Smashing The Throne At AEW Double Or Nothing 2019
Cody Rhodes and Triple H haven’t talked about 'that' throne incident at AEW Double or Nothing
When Cody Rhodes smashed a familiar looking throne with a sledgehammer at AEW Double or Nothing in 2019, many saw it as a not-so-subtle declaration of war from the new company against WWE.
Fast forward to 2023 and Cody Rhodes is preparing to headline WrestleMania against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, with Triple H as his boss.
During a conversation with Jimmy Traina on the SI Media Podcast, Cody was asked if the two have spoken about the incident: "It's not mentioned. I'd love it to be mentioned eventually because I still have my broken throne at the Nightmare Factory. I was in the warehouse the other day with WWE, and there is the 'throne' throne. Mine is a replica. There is some imagery, some iconography that could be utilised for a show potentially. I'd love for it to eventually be talked about.
“One thing that was really nice, a conversation that him and I did have, and I didn't share this until recently, was when I won the Ring of Honor World Championship, I hadn't spoken to [Triple H] since I left, and I just got a one-word text from him that said 'congrats.' This is a Ring of Honor show, ends at 1 AM, essentially. Working here, there are a bazillion shows and things you're doing. I was glad, I found out later, he watched every bit of it. He kept tabs on me. He has his finger on the pulse of what the young fans and the young roster is into," said Rhodes.
