Ring Of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling star Cody Rhodes recently appeared on Busted Open Radio to promote tonight’s All In pay-per-view. Rhodes discussed if he thinks All In can surpass any one show his father ever created, and how he thinks the late Hall Of Famer would feel about his self-funded event. Here are the highlights:
If all goes according to plan, could All In surpass any one show Dusty ever created?:
“I don’t think I can speculate. Because, it’s mine, you know? It’s me, Matt [Jackson], Nick [Jackson], it’s the Being the Elite guys. It’s all of yours, you know? It’s by wrestlers, for wrestlers.
“It’s by fans, for fans. If you look at this convention and you look at the show, I care more about whether Dusty would have a good time at All In than whether I win this match, if that makes any sense.”
How Dusty would feel about All In:
“The first time he tuned in to ECW, this is a good example, I thought like, oh, he’s gonna hate it. Look at what’s happening, there’s all kinds of sex and violence. He was so entertained, and I remember sitting in front of him with my little Hasboro figures and watch the shows, every pay-per-view.
“So he had this forward-thinking knowledge that I think all of the great minds in pro wrestling have. So, I think if he saw this, he’d have a few touches for sure, but I think he’d be pretty stoked about it. I hope he would.”
