Ring of Honor Champion Cody Rhodes was recently interviewed by FOX Sports: Braves to promote the upcoming ROH event in Atlanta. During the interview, Cody talked about how CM Punk's famous "Pipe Bomb" promo kickstarted the new era of unpredictability in professional wrestling.
"I envision (the professional wrestling business) as being in this test tube and taking various shapes every hour and you can not predict it anymore. ... I often throw it back to the ‘Pipe Bomb’ promo of CM Punk, being this really defining moment for professional wrestling because it was the first time these streams really crossed. Some of the things he was talking about he had mentioned Ring Of Honor, and then I look at what The Young Bucks have done. They’re legitimately not needing WWE. (Wrestling fans) not being a fan of where they work as much as a fan of (The Young Bucks) as a talent and as a unit. That attitude has kind of caught like wildfire, it has made it the most fun time to be a pro wrestler and a wrestling fan because legitimately anything can happen.”
Rhodes also talked about being World Champion, and what made his dad Dusty so cool.
