Source: Channel 24Channel 24 has an interview with Cody Rhodes, who was promoting the upcoming WWE tour in South Africa from July 30-August 1st. Here are a few highlights from the interview:
The impact his brother, Dustin "Goldust" Runnels, has had on his career: "Goldust is, you know, an interesting individual to begin with, but I can tell you that the things he has offered to my career are a lot on the physical side. He's a lot easier to steal little manoeuvres from than my father. So as far as how I compete as a wrestler in-between the ding-ding-ding, has a lot of influence from Goldust."
If he will be put into any main storylines soon: "For me, it's really one of those things as I am very young in the industry, and I can easily get frustrated with what is happening story-wise, but it's too much fun for me to concern myself with that stuff. I am able to go out, and lot of the times with Damian Sandown, and we're able to go out and get this riot reaction from our audience and for me, that's too much fun. I hope to be a huge part of the WWE future and I consider myself one of the flag-bearers for the next ten years, so I am sure I will have plenty of stories in the future."
His wrestling hero: "Shawn Michaels. I kind of grew up past my dad's generation and I wasn't really able to see a lot of what he did and a lot of it isn't even on. So Shawn Michaels was the one that kept my attention as a young man watching. I always wanted to see him fight back, he was always fighting from underneath and it was very dramatic for a young man who is feeling the same way. He was always my hero."
Rhodes also discussed the WWE tour, who he will be facing, if he is taken less seriously because of his looks, the pros and cons of being a second generation wrestler and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
