Cody Rhodes Puts Over The Rock’s Return To WWE, Not So Much For Brock Lesnar

PadsandPanels.com has a new interview online with Cody Rhodes. In it, Rhodes discusses his thoughts on the return of Brock Lesnar. Below is an excerpt:

Obviously, The Rock recently came back. There’s the character Lord Tensai, and now Brock Lesnar is back. As someone who likely grew up watching the Attitude Era, what is it like to be a part of what’s going on right now?

Well, I mean, I walked into The Rock’s dressing room at WrestleMania and thanked him for the number of people who were there that night and the number of people who ordered it on pay per view. I have such respect for The Rock. And now with the return of Brock … it’s completely different than The Rock. But for me, it kind of just made me angry and not in a way like, ‘Oh, blast. They get to be on another pay per view.’ More in a way that – I’m out there working. I never take a day off. I never plan on taking a day off. I’m so in love with the wrestling business I couldn’t see myself going away. And these guys have that ability to come back in because they have that presence, they have that following and are just automatically accepted as superstars again. So there’s something to learn and something to be kind of irritated from that whole Attitude Era generation, but I get it from both the good and the bad.

    And if you get to that rare top tier level someday Cody, leave for a time and wish to come back…guess what

    Just remember, those attitude era guys coming back now would have nothing to come back to if not for people like Rhodes working every day to keep the business going.

    Brock was not apart of the attitude era, he was apart of the post invasion era.

    After today, I think Vince wasted 5 million dollars. Brock worked way to stiff on poor Cena, the bad thing about it was Cena being the professional he is, couldn't do anything about it. I went into the pay per view being a "Cena Hater", and I came out of the pay per view with a whole new respect for Cena, I actually like him now.

      I’m with you 100%.

      This seems to be the consensus of sorts, and I've been waiting for something like this to happen so even the biggest "haters" would turn around. I was shocked this did it, but after the match at Extreme Rules notice that not a single fan booed Cena during his promo. I don't know what did it, but it was definitely something.

    Brock sucks, switch WWE time till he goes

    I thought Cody must like Cena more or be put off with Brock when during thay brawl Cody a heel seemed to have Cena the top faces back.

  • Bruno

    I am now a cena fan
