Triple H Sees The Greatness Of Dusty Rhodes Amplified In Cody Rhodes

Triple H sees plenty of Dusty in Cody Rhodes

Cody Rhodes is on the road to WrestleMania 39 after successfully winning the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match. Rhodes will be looking to win the big one at Mania, achieving something his dad, the late great Dusty Rhodes, never did.

It seems the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, though, as Triple H sees plenty of ‘The American Dream’ in ‘The American Nightmare’, saying the following about Rhodes during the post-Royal Rumble press conference:

"I will congratulate Cody on going through what he did for all of us, for this industry, for himself. I know what that’s like. I’ve been in that spot, unfortunately, a few different times, and I can admire what goes into it. For him to be able to turn that around and come back tonight and do what he did is amazing in and of itself," said Triple H. "Congratulations to him, punching his ticket, like he said, something that no one else in his family has been able to do, but punching that ticket to the main event of WrestleMania, having that moment to be out there, stand in front of that incredible crowd and do what everybody dreams of. I believe that the people that make fun of it are the people that believe they’ll never get the chance to do it, and that is point to that sign that says you’re going to WrestleMania in the main event."

Triple H continued: "That’s an amazing accomplishment after such an incredible setback. I can’t help, but when I look at him, I do see his dad. I look in his eyes, and I see his dad’s eyes. I see Dusty, but I see all the best things of Dusty, and then I see something more in Cody. It’s not about comparing him, I just see the greatness of his dad amplified, and that’s something special. He’s a special talent, a special human being, and I’m very proud of him for that.”
