Last updated

In a recent documentary titled ‘The American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes’, which aired exclusively on Peacock, Triple H made a comment about Cody Rhodes’ departure from AEW in February 2022.

He remarked, “It’s to take that gamble again and say ‘This is not what I wanted to be. I didn’t grow up dreaming of being the champion or the face of a secondary promotion.’”

AEW’s Response to the Triple H “Secondary Promotion” Comment

AEW didn’t take Triple H’s comments lightly. In a direct response, Tony Khan stated, “We certainly won’t be the secondary promotion at All In. We’re No. 1 in the UK, on TV and with a record gate. I have a lot of respect for Cody.

“I know these weren’t his words, to be fair, but we’re not secondary in a lot of markets — for the first time in a long time, WWE has been secondary in a lot of markets…I’m proud of where we’re at and we’re not taking a back seat to anybody.”

Booker T Weighs In

Two-time WWE Hall of Famer, Booker T, provided a different perspective on the matter. He believes that the term “secondary” might not necessarily mean being in second place.

He mentioned, “Secondary could mean more than being in second. Secondary could be another company. Cody Rhodes grew up in the WWE, not TNA, not WCW, not AEW. That may be how I am; that’s how I’m approaching it… I’m saying is, one could have played himself by even commenting.

“Because there again, for me secondary is not a bad thing. It could be again, New Japan, AEW, TNA, WCW, it could be anything. Cody Rhodes grew up wanting to be the WWE champion, something his dad did not achieve. So that’s the way I’m looking at it.”
