Rhodes says stuff like this certainly fills up his heart, and he does love it. He’s seen the social media comments with people praising and loving his performance at Hell In a Cell… he doesn’t necessarily believe in that because it is a privilege to do what he does. Rhodes admits completely tearing his pec off the bone is demoralizing, but he doesn’t want to be melancholy or down and out. Rhodes mentions how he has a daughter and when she is old enough, he wants her to watch what happened last night and know that during the darkest times, in what could’ve been the worst night of his career in literal Hell, he was not cynical or jaded, he stood and fought… fans chant “Cody!” again.

Rhodes says he fought against one of the very best Superstar wrestlers in the history of the business – Seth Freakin’ Rollins. Some fans boo and Rhodes says yeah, he doesn’t like Rollins either.

The camera shows the Money In the Bank briefcases hanging high above the ring. Cody says the MITB contract has eluded him his entire career, and certainly he is a little beat up right now, but in four weeks time, if there’s someway he can climb the ladder, grab the briefcase and cash it in to become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion… fans chant “Cody!” again and the music interrupts as Rollins comes out.

Rollins is also limping to the ring, not his usual laughing and dancing around. Rollins enters the ring and they stare at each other. Fans boo Rollins. Rollins says he still does not like Rhodes but after what he put himself through last night, Rhodes has earned Rollins’ respect. Rollins says the world is saying Rhodes put on one of the gutsiest performances ever on Sunday night, and that’s the truth. Rollins says Rhodes is one of the toughest people he’s been in the ring with, and he knows he’s the last person Cody needs to hear this from, but Cody’s father, WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, is very proud of his baby boy right now.

Rhodes starts getting emotional as fans chant his name. Rollins says Cody came out to shake his hand out of respect the night after WrestleMania 38, and tonight Rollins came out for on other reason.
