Cody Rhodes Says He Committed A ‘Cardinal Sin’ At The Royal Rumble
On Corey Graves’ “After The Bell” podcast, Cody Rhodes shared that checking out an arena before a show helps him get acquainted with the setup of a venue and lets him know where the camera is, so the audience at home can see the action properly. However, at the most recent WWE Royal Rumble, he didn’t have the opportunity to do his homework.
“My dad would really be irked if he knew this,” said Rhodes during his interview. “I did not walk the arena earlier in the day. I did not walk the ramp. I did not get in the ring. I was very much held behind doors. And because of that, I will admit... I have no clue and I still have not figured it out. I didn’t know where the hard cam was.”
Calling it a “cardinal sin” on his part, Rhodes did his best to remain professional in the moment, despite being unaware of the hard cam’s location. After being declared the winner, Rhodes made sure to position himself on all four sides of the ring at various points so that there was plenty of opportunity for the production crew to get the shot they needed.
