Cody Rhodes recently spoke with guidelive.com to promote ROH’s Honor Reigns Supreme event in Dallas on February 4. Here are the highlights.
What about ROH? How has the experience been there thus far?
“I think if you could really pinpoint a “first night” in my new career, it was Ring of Honor’s Final Battle in the Hammerstein Ballroom. I’ve been blown away by the efficiency and professionalism of Ring of Honor, and the opportunities afforded to me to be in there with people that I’m genuinely fans of. I’m a genuine fan of The Young Bucks. I’m a genuine fan of Adam Cole. And it’s a nice, friendly competition between somebody like me and Cole when we’re in there together to see who’s better – in between tags. It’s a bit narcissistic, a bit Horsemen-like, I guess, in a way, but gosh it feels good … I dig what Ring of Honor is doing very, very much. I plan to make them my home for some time.”
Reaction to Kurt Angle being the first member of the year’s WWE Hall of Fame class…
“He’s just a tremendous headliner. He’s the greatest pure wrestler – no one with an amateur acumen can ever compare unless they also have an Olympic gold medal … I just can’t wait to see him. I let him know that day that I can’t wait to see him and tell him congratulations. One of the things my dad told me was the only real thing when it comes to the world of wrestling, the only real thing is the Hall of Fame. Maybe that’s because he was a Hall of Famer, but I’ll never forget that.”
