-- Cody Rhodes was recently interviewed by the Chad Dukes Wrestling show and talked about bringing back the white Intercontinental title belt, his tag team wrestling work, and more. Below are some highlights:
Rhodes on bringing back the white Intercontinental title belt: "Not many people know this; I paid for the title to be recreated. I was refunded, heavily refunded, but I paid to show it to the man and say, 'Listen, this will get a reaction, that you might not think it will and here's why,' you know? And I'm very happy to see it still in existence."
Rhodes on his enjoyment of tag team wrestling: "When I was tagging with Damien Sandow I was asked that question a lot and I always said I prefer singles wrestling, but in this case it's one of the few times I've kind of stopped sort of surveyed the landscape and been just happy. I don't want to say content, I don't want to say satisfied, but I've been happy. I'd say I'm really enjoying the tag element of our industry really more than I have in the past. In the past I've had many partners and I'm trying eventually to get to that elusive 12-championship reign that Hall of Famer Edge had. That statistic alone makes me feel really good about my tag and singles career that I'm able to do this and who knows how long it's gonna last with my brother Goldust and where it's gonna end up, but it certainly is a wonderful spotlight for him and I. We've had a lot of luck with the matches we've been putting on as of late. And that's a credit to those guys too, the Usos like you mentioned, to be the fundamental cornerstone match of a pay-per-view like Survivor Series, to have the elimination match. I feel strongly that we can go in and steal the show away from these other matches, these other great matches."
