Cody Rhodes, the wrestling sensation, recently shared his emotional turmoil leading up to a significant WWE match. Despite having triumphed over Seth Rollins in his comeback matches at WrestleMania 38 and Backlash, the fierce rivalry was slated to reach its peak at Hell in a Cell.

The anticipation for the showdown was palpable, but concerns arose when it was disclosed that Rhodes had suffered a torn pec during training. Speculations loomed over whether the match would proceed as planned. Surprisingly, Rhodes was granted approval to participate in the match, defying the odds.

Although the match garnered immense praise from fans and critics alike, Rhodes confessed a different sentiment. Reflecting on the encounter two years later on social media, the Undisputed Champion admitted feeling “embarrassed and dejected” that night. He credited the victory to the Chicago crowd, acknowledging his emotional state during the match.

Following the intense showdown, Rhodes underwent surgery and made a triumphant return at the 2023 Royal Rumble, emerging victorious from the coveted number 30 position.

In a heartwarming gesture, Rhodes recently reached out to rising UK sports star Luke Littler during his visit to WWE headquarters, solidifying his status as a fan favorite and a beacon of inspiration in the wrestling world.
