Cody Rhodes issues statement following his actions at NJPW Strong Style Evolved



Cody Rhodes has issued a statement (kayfabe, of course) after his actions at Sunday night’s NJPW Strong Style Evolved show:

“It is with a heavy heart and the hope that this will be read by open minds, that I release this statement.

Nick Jackson is my friend. At the climax of last night’s “Strong Style Evolved” it appeared that I deliberately, and with malice, shoved him to the mat. That was 100% not the case.

After having just witnessed one of the most unbelievable matches of my generation, I became frustrated as I (like many others in attendance and watching at home) was hoping for a different result. My frustration was my undoing. In a misguided attempt to motivate Matt Jackson, I became unaware of my surroundings…I assumed it was Kenny Omega who grabbed me by the arm and instinctually I shoved him backwards outta’ self defense. Imagine my horror upon seeing that it was my best friend Nick.

This is the truth.

A truth I hope the fans and my peers can respect and understand. Regardless, I formally apologize to Nick, Matt and the entire Massie family.

Thank you.”

Rhodes is scheduled to face Kenny Omega at Supercard of Honor XII on Saturday, April 7 during WrestleMania weekend in New Orleans.
