TWP MAGAZINE #18 NOW AVAILABLE!
WWE Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes recently spoke to FREE online magazine The Wrestling Press about being the son of a WWE Hall of Famer, his thoughts on Randy Orton and various other subjects. Here’s what he had to say:
On the subject of having WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes as his father: “For me, he wasn’t the Hall of Famer or the legend as much as he was just dad, he wasn’t on the road regularly when I was growing up. He was my football coach; he never missed an amateur wrestling match I had.”
On Randy Orton: “A lot of the ideas and the things we were doing to get under people’s skin with the grooming tops straight-up 100 percent came from my former mentor Randy Orton. That guy, he’s a gentleman’s diva, hands down. So many of those ideas that are obnoxious – teaching people how to spray tan, teaching people how to manicure their hands, putting on cucumber melon face lotion – that’s Randy Orton.
We also have interviews with Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J and a rare interview with Dragon Gate regular PAC. As well as many other original features, such as; The Cole Train – John Cena, You’re A Dynasty – Greg Iron, One armed and Dangerous – Top 10 Fantasy Opponents for Kurt Angle – Wrestling and the Internet – ROH going public – and much, much more.

The Chesapeake Energy Arena, in Oklahoma City, which is the site of next week's WWE Raw, has posted the following preview for the show:
"The Game is not fit to lead the company and must, essentially, either appoint a new COO or resign from his post.
"After one of the most historic RAWs in recent history, will the fallout continue from disgruntled WWE Superstars John Cena, CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, Sheamus, Mark Henry, Oklahoma's own Jim Ross and more on Monday night at Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Arena?"
Additionally, WWE.com has posted a new article up on the site teasing that Shawn Michales might be involved in the current Triple H COO story line, noting that HHH might have been set up to fail due to the ties he has had with Degeneration X in the past. As we previously reported, HBK is set to return to WWE TV at next week's Smackdown taping for a DX reunion. You can check out the article by clicking on the above link.
