Cody Rhodes recently participated in a Twitter Q&A answering questions that range from who he feels is the most underrated in wrestling, to why he feels fans get so up in arms about ratings.
Regarding underrated wrestlers, Cody Rhodes seemed to agree with Rusev that Cesaro is very underrated but he also named a rival of his from AEW, Shawn Spears.
Underrated and underutilized often get misconstrued and bundled together.— Cody (@CodyRhodes) July 26, 2020
So specifically “underrated” - guys who don’t get enough credit for their in-ring game...
Spears and Claudio. https://t.co/O55C62DTcj
Regarding comparisons to competition, Cody Rhodes said that the template from the 90s in the Attitude Era is the only thing that fans have to base this modern-day time on so they tend to take some of the traditions from that era.
It’s new. It’s unknown. Its also very aggressive in delivery and it’s marketing.— Cody (@CodyRhodes) July 26, 2020
I think the late 90s’ template for the current situation is the only reference people have sometimes, but respectfully that ecosystem doesn’t fit ours.
This is very new territory & it’s fan made. https://t.co/sSngDOQ3wg
Cody also addressed contractual equality for entry-level men and women on the roster.
That’s already real bud. Entry contracts are the same, regardless of gender. It’s 2020 man. We told the world this at our first presser. Real now as it was then.— Cody (@CodyRhodes) July 26, 2020
Cody also took some time to say Maxwell Jacob Friedman is due for a World Heavyweight Championship match.
I wrestled MJF. He won.— Cody (@CodyRhodes) July 26, 2020
He is due for a world title shot. He’s #1 ranked. I imagine that is something that’ll come to fruition, long as he keeps his ranking.— Cody (@CodyRhodes) July 26, 2020
Cody's next championship defense will be against Warhorse, this coming Wednesday on TNT.
