WWE superstar Cody Rhodes recently announced that he would be proud to hold the iconic Intercontinental Championship once again.
Since returning to WWE at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas last month, The American Nightmare has made it his mission to win the coveted WWE championship in honor of his late father, The American Dream Dusty Rhodes.
Despite his world championship aspirations, Cody Rhodes revealed in an interview with Metro that he would be willing to hold the Intercontinental Championship. The former AEW star believes he will respect the historic belt it deserves.
“I think if I had the IC Title now, I’d be less concerned with selfishly climbing my cards and putting the Intercontinental Title on the pedestal.” Rhodes added: “I think I can do wonders for it. My goal is to Win the WWE Championship but there’s a lot of road to get there. No pun intended. If it runs through the Titles. Intercontinental, I would be very proud to carry one of the industry’s most prestigious Championships.” (H/T Metro)
Despite having been a key player in the creation of AEW, Rhodes seems to have nothing but respect for the company where he began his wrestling career.
Cody Rhodes Knows He Can Beat Roman Reigns
Cody’s number one priority is winning the WWE Championship. However, he has a noble task ahead of him, considering the undefeated record of current champion Roman Reigns.
Reigns currently holds both world titles as the undisputed WWE Universal Champion after he defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 to unify both championships.
Despite Reigns’ impressive résumé, Cody recently stated in an interview with Sports Illustrated that he can beat the Leader.
“Roman Reigns and I, we haven’t had any interactions,” Rhodes said. “We haven’t passed the stages in the ring yet. I’ve seen enough to know he’s amazing and it’s even better when you see him up close. So it’s not an easy road. It’s the easiest thing I’ve chosen. But I know I can do it.” (H/T Sports Illustrated)
The Prodigal Son will need to defeat his current nemesis Seth Rollins at Hell in a cell before he can finally set his eyes on gold.
