Cody Rhodes Discusses Breaking In; Spending A Year Driving John Cena Around

The Toldeo Free Press has a new article online featuring quotes from WWE Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes. Below are the highlights:

“When we weren’t at [training], we were at somebody’s apartment, watching WWE 24/7. And when we weren’t there, we were eating, and I was learning about diet and training — that was something I never had any access to. My dad was not a body guy. And in this day and age, when a company has evolved to where a lot of the specimens you see on TV are carved from stone, that was all new to me.”

“I spent a year driving Cena around when I was on the Raw brand,” Rhodes said. “The goal was to learn a lot about him, what he does in the ring, how he has gotten where he has gotten, but also to learn a lot about merchandising and marketing, pretty much all the things he does. And I’d say I learned a great deal on what it takes outside of the ring. He’s noted as being one of the most hard-working people in entertainment, and he is. If you want his job, you have to work as hard as he does. And it is much easier said than done.”

    That's why CR will be successful.

    • Anand

      He is one of WWE's fastest rising young stars and is in-line to a WWE or WHC title run by 2012 or at most 2013…

      correction: that's why CR is successful, i mean Cristiano Ronaldo ahah.

  • Dave Barton

    *sigh* Its things like this that make me wish I could like Cena the wrestler, because Cena the person seems like such a genuinely decent guy.

  • J-Dub

    Big Props to a guy looking to get ahead and doing what it takes. Smart!

  • Bruno

    Cody Rhodes is a guaranteed world champion.

      Don't say that. Remember Drew McIntyre?

      • Jean

        Drew was a joke from the beginning. Sure he got a few pushes, but Cody has already beyond succeeded what Drew only wishes he had. Cody will definitely be a WWE Champion, and soon.

      • bruno

        Drew Mcintyre is not the son of a hall of famer like cody. Cody Rhodes is following Randy Orton's footsteps and will one day be one of the top dogs in the company like orton is

      • Anand

        I dont think we can compare Cody and Drew. Cody has been far more consistent than Drew. Anyways, WWE too seems to have dropped the ball on Drew.

  • Hunter

    He’s great and you can tell he’s worked his ass off to improve the last couple of years.

  • Chris

    Cody's Dad, not a body guy?? Really?? ;) ;).

    I notice humility and honesty in CR. Honestly, i never love CR as a wrestler.
    Now i could see sincerity in a young man struggling to excel.He would surely go places.Keep it up boy.
