Speaking on a recent edition of the “Gabby AF” podcast, Cody Rhodes discussed the upcoming WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view event where he will be part of the Men’s WarGames match, including his history with Damian Priest.
Rhodes looked back on his match against Priest at WWE Crown Jewel.
“Going into the match, I feel like I want to give credit, I know you referred to him as annoying, and there’s love/hate, I want credit to Damian Priest. Not for anything he’s done recently. I want to give him credit because I wrestled him at Ring of Honor during the Ring of Honor renaissance that me and Matt and Nick, and we had Roland there, and he’s a completely different individual. To me, that’s a sign of a true pro is, are you better tomorrow than you were today? Fans aren’t always the most patient, but then also they’re the most loyal. So as long as you continue to improve, you can attach to them at some point. I feel like he has a very large future, not just because the briefcase is in hand, but just looking back at what he did with Bad Bunny at Backlash as well, I feel like he has a large future. Across from me, not gonna happen. But he’s definitely a big player for WWE,” Rhodes said.
