Cody Rhodes On Possible “All In” Host City, “WAGS” Filming

While waiting for the show “The Orville” to begin, ROH Champion Cody Rhodes decided to do a quick 5 minute Q&A, and below are some highlights:

Eric Young Recounts WarGames Experience

WWE NXT star and SAnitY member Eric Young has published a new article for ESPN, and below is an excerpt, in which Young recalls his NXT Takeover WarGames experience:

“The scale of it all is just staggering.

Over the course of three or four days, you have hundreds of people working to get everything just right — the lights, sound rigs, the wrestling ring and the sets. It’s a massive, massive undertaking, and that’s why pulling into the building is always when it hits me. When I realize where I am, I have these moments when I pull back and say, “Man, I’m a part of this whole thing.”

I’m this short, chubby kid from a tiny little town in rural Ontario surrounded by corn fields and bean fields. Here I am in Houston, Texas, about to entertain tens of thousands of people there and millions of people all over the world. It’s very humbling, and it can honestly be terrifying when you really think about the scope of how massive things are.

But it fills me with pride, knowing that me and eight other men were given this massive task, this massive responsibility to do War Games justice.

In this moment, I was feeling really good, and I was excited and sure that I was going to be at my best. At 37 years old, after being in wrestling for 20 years, I can say that was probably the most excited I’d ever been for a match. It’s amazing that I can still have that feeling, that energy and that excitement that gives me jitters in the pit of my chest and throughout my whole body.”
