Cody was recently a guest on the Edge and Christian podcast. The 32-year-old is riding high these days after his planned All-In event on September 1st, 2018, sold out in under 30 minutes.
Several topics were discussed on the podcast but one of the more interesting notes involved a comment Cody made regarding Triple H. During the interview, Cody revealed he received a congratulatory text message from Triple H after winning the ROH World Championship.
“The coolest feeling in the world is to have text messages from people in our industry who don’t have text you. Somebody like Triple H telling me ‘congrats’ for winning the ROH World title,” Cody said to Edge and Christian. “It makes what we do real. My Dad always told me that was the only real thing we do is the World Title.”
Cody Rhodes and Triple H
While Cody has had less than pleasant words for WWE regarding Starrcade or the company patent-claiming the name “Cody Rhodes”, he’s always had high praise for Triple H.
Cody was upset following WWE’s decision to use the name “Starrcade” this fall. He sent out the following in response:
If you're afraid an event won't sell cuz' the holiday and want one of my Dad's events…at least book Goldy..

In something which went mildly under the radar, Michael Hayes offered Cody a spot on the card after.
So Cody, UR right we should have Goldy on the show, by the way, what R U doing that night??? Wanna team with UR Brother?

5 days after the offer, Cody signed an exclusive deal with Ring of Honor.
When NXT announced they were bringing back another Dusty creation, War Games, Cody’s reaction was different.
I'm not mad. I was told. H worked for my Dad and then my Dad worked for him. They were friends. Care and effort will be placed into it.

Cody and Triple H have always spoken highly of each other. This fuels speculation Cody left WWE due to his belief Vince McMahon didn’t seem him as a star. It’s possible Triple H agrees with Cody and not Vince. This is even more likely to be the case now considering what Cody has accomplished since leaving the company.
With Vince McMahon expected to spend more time away from WWE in the coming years, it remains to be seen just how long Cody spends outside the promotion.
Cody has brushed off the question of a WWE return when asked. His responses to the question generally state he is happy where he is and happy with what he accomplished during his time in WWE.
I had a great run. Met my wife. Made the Mania' walk a bunch of times. Got a chance to see Dad's last elbow. Won a bunch of titles. Made millions without a college education.
but I'm happy where I'm at and where this is going. 2018 will be the most important year of my career. https://t.co/G32flxqPXc
