Cody Rhodes says despite "competitive streak", his brother called him after his world championship win.
At Ring of Honor's Best in the World, Cody Rhodes won his first world championship when defeated Christopher Daniels via pinfall to capture the Ring of Honor world title In a media conference call, Rhodes told Fightful he heard from his brother Goldust after the big win.
"It was a private discussion. I know there's been such a competitive streak between myself and (Goldust). It was one of those moments you let that competitive streak go. He offered me up what you want from your sibling and your family. He offered me up that simple 'congratulations' and 'I love you.' Me and him have had some rough times. Not just because of the passing of our father, because we weren't destined to work as a tag-team, and maybe not even opponents," said Rhodes.
Rhodes considers he and his brother to be singles performers and he appreciated Goldust letting his ego go to congratulate him.
"I love my big brother. I absolutely do. And if the shoe was on the other foot and he became World Champion or becomes World Champion, I'll be there," said Rhodes.
In the rest of the conference call, Rhodes answered questions about his upcoming match against Kazuchika Okada. The two will face off at the G1 Special in a IWGP Heavyweight Championship match. Fightful Wrestling will provide live coverage and recapping podcast for the event.
