In 2022, Cody Rhodes made a stellar comeback to WWE with a singular vision: to ensure a Rhodes finally secures the coveted WWE Championship. While that dream remains alive, his journey thus far has surpassed even his wildest expectations, solidifying his place as one of WWE's luminaries.
During a recent appearance on "The Dale Jr. Download," Rhodes shared insights into his current WWE journey. "The wrestling universe is booming with talent, but my current stint has outpaced all my anticipations," Rhodes expressed.
"I'm living moments which were once reserved for my idols. I've always aspired to be in the limelight, much like how Roman Reigns is now. And I feel privileged to be so close to that, bringing something distinct to the table.
If this chapter concludes tomorrow, I'm just grateful for the memories."
Cody's Unwavering Drive
Cody's charisma both in-ring and off-stage has undeniably echoed with the fans. His skyrocketing merchandise sales and audience engagement highlight his meteoric rise.
However, Rhodes' eyes are still set on the WWE Championship. He emphasized his gratitude for the WWE universe, stating, "Every evening, I communicate my love and gratitude to the fans. I operate with the belief that everything might conclude the next day." Rhodes' reintroduction to WWE in 2022 witnessed an electrifying feud with ex-WWE Champion Seth Rollins, climaxing at Hell in a Cell.
However, just before this epic showdown, WWE disclosed that Rhodes had suffered a severe pectoral tear. But displaying commendable courage, he faced Rollins inside the dreaded cell, even with such a debilitating injury. Describing the unique experience, Rhodes said, "The crowd's reaction was unlike any I've seen.
I wasn't sure how they'd perceive my wrestling with half my body severely wounded. The injury was substantial, with bruising that kept spreading, making me worry about potential complications in my bicep." Post this ordeal, a curious trend emerged.
Fans began presenting Rhodes with photos capturing the gruesome injury for autographs. Astonishingly, he reckons this might be the most-signed image from his illustrious career. This just goes to show the indomitable spirit of Cody Rhodes and his unwavering dedication to the craft and fans.
