During a recent appearance on the Major Wrestling Figure Podcast, Rhodes cleared up a misconception about the bout, noting that he was only given two baby aspirins before going out to compete.

“I get very petty when I see on social that people think I had some sort of medication. I’ll tell you the god honest truth. I was hoping for some extra strength tunnel, I was hoping for something, but when I went to Larry in the training room looking for some anti-inflammatories, I was given, and I kid you not, two baby aspirins. I was happy to have them. Right in the early part of the match, I thought I was going to puke because it’s that feeling when you’ve been punched in the nose or when you’ve been hit so hard that your body wasn’t ready, you took a fall from way high up or whatever it is. I thought that this won’t go much longer, I thought for sure I was gonna just literally vomit in front of the audience and then I found kind of a second wind. Near the end of it, I felt like I could have benched that 315 and just been repping it out but shortly thereafter, all that pain set in.”
