DDP Reveals What Cody Rhodes Asked Him To Do At The “All In” Event


During a recent interview on WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross’ The Ross Report podcast, WWE Hall of Famer DDP revealed the one request Cody Rhodes asked him for when he made an appearance at the “All In” event this past September. Here are some highlights:

On what Cody asked him for at All In: “[Cody] texted me right around ALL IN, right? If you can go out doing Diamond Cutters at WrestleMania. I guess it was two or three WrestleManias ago when we did the one in Dallas [Texas]. When was that? [WrestleMania] 32 and I get to go out there, a big surprise deal, and that’s 101,000 people, and get to drop a Diamond Cutter or two before I get thrown over the top [rope], and I’m like, ‘please God, let me land [safely].’ No, I wasn’t [driving a pink Cadillac then]. It was two days before my 60th birthday and I came up right behind [Triple H] and Steph [McMahon] and said, ‘thank you very much for the birthday present!’ And I would’ve done it for nothing just to do it, but to go out there and I’m done. No more Diamond Cutters. Then, Cody and I said to him earlier, ‘if you need me for anything [at ALL IN], let me know. And then, about a week out he texted me, ‘do you have one more Diamond Cutter in you? It’s one of the options.’ I said, ‘sure, for you. You and the WWE! Absolutely!’”

On The Young Bucks: “I was talking to Dalton from ROH last night. He’s a really good kid. We had a really good talk and we came to talking about independent wrestling, and how, literally, it was The Young Bucks that changed the field and started to bring not just people, but getting paid. Those guys need to be paid. Who the hell has one of those little dolls now with the big head, [Funko] or something? Who the hell [has] got that who isn’t working with WWE or a legend or something? Those two guys do. Matt and Nick do!”

On The Elite: “That’s why I think they’re the most over betcause all of them, from Marty [Scurll] to Kenny [Omega] to Cody, to Nick and Matt [Jackson], they’re having fun. This kid Hangman Page, he [has] got some serious talent. Again, they are part of this elite group of guys. They’re having so much fun. I was backstage at ALL IN and we had been there a hell of a lot of times with the old man when Dusty [Rhodes] was back there. It was like a fine watch. He never sold it. If there was pressure, you never saw it. I was watching Cody back there and everyone’s coming up to him asking him everything and he was getting ready for the biggest match of his life, but having fun telling everybody how he thinks they’re going to run the show and he’s doing the meeting just like Dusty used to do.”
