Last night’s RAW revealed a third match taking place inside Hell in a Cell between Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes III.
Booker T told the WWE universe why Rollins was under pressure in their rubber match, as he is an Intercontinental Champion.
“Seth Rollins needs this win more,” Booker responded. “I mean, Cody Rhodes right now is 2-0 heading into the rubber match. And I must say, Cody isn’t one of those guys that had that easier route. He had to work for everything. Seth Rollins is a guy who made it to the top relatively easy, but I must say he had a lot of help.”
Booker added, “Cody had to break himself down and rebuild himself. And that’s the Cody Rhodes we see today.”
Seth Rollins took exception to Booker’s comments while pointing out how he had to do indies work for years before he was WWE champion.
This narrative is false. I started wrestling at 18 years old in back rooms of bars, in pole barns, at UAW Halls, the occasional parking lot. Lost money. Broke bones. Drove countless hours alone just to build a name that got erased the second I walked in the WWE door.
Cody Rhodes is featured most prominently on the poster for this upcoming Hell In A Cell event, which takes place in Chicago at the Allstate Arena on June 5. Roman Reigns was previously featured as the main event Superstar but removed due to reports that he won’t be wrestling at the event.
Who needs this win more?
