Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan DC / CBS Radio and Chaddukeswrestling.com interviewed Cody Rhodes. Here are some highlights.
Part time stars: “I love the fact that Brock [Lesnar], and the Rock, and [Chris] Jericho are here because they’re guaranteed. They’ve proven that they can go in the ring. For Wrestlemania this year, I think it’s wonderful. I think there wasn’t any room for that celebrity involvement. Who’s a bigger celebrity than the Rock? I think it’s wonderful that he’s returning to his roots, because he loves wrestling. He loves wrestling. He loves sports entertainment too, but he loves wrestling. I dig that about the Rock.
“But next year, at WrestleMania 30, it’s a personal goal … and I know Dolph (Ziggler) is the same way, Wade (Barrett) is probably the same way, that it’s not about bringing anyone back. Let these guys go home. They did everything they possibly could, let them go home. They’re going to go off into the sunset heroes and having had great matches, but new stars are moving forward. Sports entertainment has to evolve or it won’t continue.”
A feud with Goldust: “Yeah, it’ll happen. I just don’t know when and I don’t know where. He doesn’t know when and he doesn’t know where, but I know it’ll happen. There are certain things, and I don’t mean to sound cocky or braggadocios, but there are certain things I know have to happen while I work for this company, and that’s one of them.”
