Cody Rhodes has admitted that he’s very interested in getting into the ring with Sting, expressing his desire to have that match.
Cody recently spoke to New York Post, where he discussed Sting’s return, and he spoke about how he wants to wrestle him, even if it’s in a cinematic situation.
“To me, the cinematic matches, they really don’t have a current definition,” Rhodes said. “I’ve seen the Stadium Stampede. I’ve seen the Boneyard [match]. I’ve seen various different ways to present cinematic. And really cinematic just means with different camera cuts. It can mean a lot of things, but ask me that question again in a few months because I want the opportunity to stand across from the Stinger and I think he knows that. It’s almost kind of itching at me under my skin that if there is somebody I wanted to beat, it’s the face of TNT’s hottest period and run. I’m going to be watching like everyone else at ‘Revolution’ and then the decision will become a little bit more clear. With what happens at ‘Revolution’ and how him and Darby are able to navigate that stream, then ask me in a few months and I’ll have a better answer.”
He then went on to talk about the aura that Sting brings backstage, and how the mood changes when he’s around.
“I want people to think he’s just that all the time. That’s who he is. He’s just walking around face painted, the long coat because that’s how I see him. When he walks through the back, the common area right before you get to the go position where my office is, where Tony’s office is, there is the common area and when he walks through there it changes the mood. Every local who might be working ‘Dark’ that night, guy who is chomping away, then when you see him he really brings this great presence. That alone is really invaluable and the fact that he’s on TV and we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg with I think what Sting is capable of.”
Sting will be competing in his first match since his retirement at AEW Revolution where he teams up with Darby Allin to face Ricky Starks and Brian Cage in a street fight.
Shaq Discusses His AEW Dynamite Appearance & How He Got Motivated
Shaq has spoken about his appearance on AEW Dynamite and why he got motivated to get in good physical condition.
Shaq appeared on Access to discuss why he decided to dress the way he did, opting for sweatpants and a tank top rather than traditional wrestling gear.
“Look, Cody challenged me to a fight, I’m showing up in fight clothes, sweatpants and a tank top. I respect him, I respect his family, I respect all the wrestlers, what they’ve done. I don’t want to come in with a gimmicky costume. This man challenged me to a fight. I’m showing up like it’s going to be a fight. So I’m just going to wear sweatpants and a tank top.”
Shaq looked in great shape when he appeared on Dynamite, and he revealed that it was because of Mario Lopez that he got in such great physical shape.
“Guess who motivated me? One day I was looking on the internet and I’d seen my good friend Mario Lopez take his shirt off and I got jealous because we used to hang out back in the day. We used to look similar and now you’re killing me, so I wanted to say thank you for motivating me. You look fabulous. I want to say I’m proud of you. But I’ll be ready tonight, March 3rd, I’ll be ready.” (H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions)
The Young Bucks Admit They Thought Paul Wight Was A Lifetime WWE Guy
The Young Bucks recently spoke about AEW signing Paul Wight, revealing how Tony Khan broke the news to them.
The signing of Wight (fka The Big Show) is something that took the wrestling world by surprise. Wight had been a very loyal WWE Superstar, and even The Young Bucks admitted they were shocked as they told Robbie Fox of Barstool Sports.
“So, Tony, I want to say it was about a month ago, he wanted to tell us something. He gathered us up with Kenny, he’s like, ‘hey, what do you guys think of signing the Big Show?’ We’re like, ‘what?’ Our reaction was like, ‘really, I thought he would be a lifetime WWE guy.’ He said, ‘well, he wants to come and play,’ so we’re like, ‘let’s do it.’ So that was pretty much how it all went.” (H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions)
Wight has signed a long-term deal with the company and he will be working as a commentator for the company for AEW’s new show, AEW Dark: Elevation.
Wight will also be appearing at AEW Revolution tonight where he will be introducing a “Hall Of Fame level” new signing. Meanwhile, The Young Bucks will be defending their Tag Team Championships agasint Chris Jericho and MJF.
