CODY RHODES APOLOGIZES FOR OFFENSIVE CHANT AT TRIPLEMANIA

Cody Rhodes has said sorry over an alleged homophobic chant he took part in at this years TripleMania event.

Following his, Psycho Clown’s and UFC fighter Cain Velasquez’s victory, Psycho Clown asked Rhodes and Velasquez to join in as they led a “puto” chant towards their opponents, a term that is looked down upon for its homophobic nature.

SB Nation’s Outsports contacted AEW about what happened last month and received the following statement from the promotion.

Cody joined his teammates at AAA TripleMania for what he understood to be their post-match tradition in Mexico and was unaware of any negative connotations. Certainly the last thing Cody would want to do is to hurt or offend anyone, anywhere.
