Sources: The CourantThe Courant has an interview with Cody Rhodes, who was promoting Friday night's WWE live event at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, CT. Here are a few highlights:
Teaming with Goldust:
"It's funny: the show in Bridgeport is me and Goldie still tagging together, which is wonderful, but we never intended on tagging together in the first place. It kind of started and caught fire with the whole fall  heading into Battleground. One thing about us is that we don't necessarily all really gel. Dusty is the charismatic patriarch, Goldie is the guy that everybody likes and I was always kind of the jerk in the family. That's why I'll look back at that so fondly. I didn't even really realize at the time of Battleground how special it was. I think we were all selfishly thinking for ourselves individually. [Laughs] When I look back at it, it wasn't about any individuals, it was about the collective family, and I'm very proud of it.
Wanting a match with Goldust:
"At the root of my professional career with my brother, I think I'm better than Goldust, and in his heart, he thinks he's better than I am. We love each other, and we're brothers, and that's great, but at the root of all that, you kind of want to find out who's right, and I certainly hope that at some point you get to see that match as well."
Paying to get the Intercontinental title belt back in its old form:
"Sometimes, stuff happens. Sometimes, there's no plan. Sometimes, you've got to be ready for that red light to turn on and have a new look or something about you. I had been going to WWE management about the Intercontinental title for five, six weeks, and I was met kind of roughly individually each time. But to me, it's because they weren't my age. It wasn't because they thought I was stupid. I think it's initially because they didn't connect with my generation because they aren't part of my generation. Three weeks in, I was very confident that I was going to get them to say yes on it out of pestering them alone, so I went ahead and followed through in getting it made for that reason. I wanted them to see it and maybe they could feel it. Sometimes, your passion isn't always there when your ideas are shared, so I went directly to them with my passion, and the rest is history. At [WWE Hell in a Cell 2011 in] New Orleans, I pulled it out of some velvet bag, and it's there forever, and I hope it stays the way that it is."
Rhodes also talked video games, his moonsault off the cage on RAW, his other gimmicks, being a second-generation wrestler and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
