Cody Rhodes participated in a Reddit AMA on Tuesday afternoon, answering various questions pertaining to his career, lifestyle, and All In.
Fightful has compiled highlights from the session.
-Cody isn't sure about his future as a promoter despite the success of All In. "I’m already over budget and overtime ha"
-On Marty Scurll against Kazuchika Okada: "Nick Jackson wanted Marty to have a match. I had Marty doing a 'singing segment'...Nick was right"
-Best advice he ever received: "'Never let them convince you that you aren’t the star of that tag team' -Joey Mercury"
-Houston and Dublin were considered to host All In.
-Cody on shaking Randy Orton's hand: "We hugged"
-When asked why there wasn't more European talent on the show, Cody explained, "One issue with talents from outside countries was visas...the three of us were not versed in how that works properly. Securing the Canadian and Japanese ones were rather difficult. Lesson learned though."
-Cody wanted Goldust & Mongo for All In.
-Do not expect Flip Gordon at All In: "Flip is not in it. If you’re expecting a surprise thing with flip, you’re gonna’ be disappointed. Not everything is a storyline. Dude is great, he just didn’t make the cut."
-On the heel/face dynamic in wrestling: "Heels & babyfaces don’t exist anymore. Just want fans interested and making noise and not being proposed a black and white question. Audience is way too smart for that."
-No streamers allowed at All In.
All In takes place this Saturday, Sept. 1. Fightful will provide full coverage of the event.
