Seth Rollins is the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, he won the championship by defeating AJ Styles at WWE Night Of Champions, ever since then Seth has defended the World Title multiple times. Cody Rhodes fought Seth Rollins in his first return match to WWE.
Seth Rollins recently was on The SI Media podcast, where he talked about working with Cody Rhodes and his work ethics.
“Our relationship is very complex. I think that’s the best way to put it. I think there’s a mutual respect there. Obviously, I think when you have two guys at our caliber, there’s respect, but there’s also a level of competition. There’s a healthy jealousy in some capacity on both sides. He has mentioned recently that we both [are] vying constantly to be the top guy on the top show Monday Night Raw, and that’s the truth. And so, there’s respect. Friendship, I don’t know that I would go that far, but yeah, it’s very complex situation between the two of us, that’s for sure.”
“What Cody’s been able to do, kind of coming out of his father’s shadow, which is a very difficult thing to do, and making his own path. And the way he’s done it [is] by being here in WWE, leaving, starting a rival promotion, coming back, and really defying expectations to get to the top of the card and stay at the top of the card. You can’t say anything bad about Cody’s work ethic.” (H/T: EWrestlingNews)
