Avoiding the Whining Trap

After the loss, Rhodes chose not to dwell on the defeat. He was cautious about not appearing to whine about the outcome.

In an interview with BT Sport’s Ariel Helwani, Rhodes explained, ‘One thing I didn’t want to do was whine. My buddy, Sean Ross Sapp, half buddy, half not. He was saying, ’˜I wish Cody would talk about how he got screwed at WrestleMania.’ I’m thinking, that’s not the way to do it, I’d be kicking my own ass. No. The story is unfinished. It is. I wanted to move and try to get back to finishing it. That’s where I was at.”
