As a result, he is now eligible for a world title shot at WrestleMania 39. For those who are unaware, Cody has never been a world champion in WWE. In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport about his recent win Cody also voiced why he was jealous of the Rock and John Cena who have had the privilege of being number one in WWE. He recalled an incident where he threw a bottle against the Rock and Cena’s bus.
“For whatever reason, I was drinking Yoohoo and the Cena/Rock bus was in front of me, and that bus had been in front of me for one year, and it’s Cena, and it’s Rock, I get it, but I was getting so close and getting knocked back down,” Rhodes explained. “I took the Yoohoo bottle and I threw it against the side of the bus and I told [Brandi] ‘I just can’t do this. I can’t be number 25 on the call sheet, I can’t even be 1b, man. I want to play quarterback.’”
Maybe I had some things when I left that I was right about, but there was a lot I wasn’t right about,” Rhodes said. “But yeah, I threw a Yoohoo bottle against The Rock’s face. Poor Rock, I’m so sorry.”
These guys, they’re on top and on top and on top, and they’re on top for a reason. I just wanted to be in that spot and it took me some time to get even close to it,” he said.
