Bill Pritchard

Cody RhodesESPN's Jon Robinson recently posted this week's WWE Power Rankings, and this entry features a few comments from Cody Rhodes about where he is at in his career. You can read a few excerpts below:

If he considers his career to be in a funk:
“I feel like after Money in the Bank in Phoenix, I almost took a nose dive, career-wise. I couldn’t get the reigns on it, but I feel like I finally got the reigns on my career again, and that happens in entertainment… I’ll be 28 this summer, and I’d really like to continue furthering my career, whether it’s teaming with Damien [Sandow], or it’s back in a singles capacity.

On comedy in wrestling and teaming with Damien Sandow:
“It’s funny, because before Rhodes Scholars, I had zero interest in doing another tag team, but I’ve really enjoyed Damien’s company. I have a different outlook on sports entertainment than Damien does, and it makes for fun TV. I’ve never really been good at the comedy elements of the business. I’ve always looked at the business in a more serious, stern fashion like the guys I grew up liking, and I’m just not a funny guy. But Damien is, and he’s also a really tough bastard, and I like that.”

Here are this week's top five power rankings:

1. Brock Lesnar
2. The Shield
3. CM Punk
4. Dolph Ziggler
5. John Cena
