Cody Rhodes On When He Wants To Retire And More

All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes recently took part in an interview with All Elite Wrestling Announcer Tony Schiavone on a number of topics including wanting to be a better wrestler everyday, wanting to retire at the age of 40 and wanting to take care of his wife and mother.

Below are the highlights from the interview:

On wanting to be the best wrestler everyday:

“So, when you’re a second-generation, third-generation, whatever, and you join this, you’re almost always set with the standards that were laid before you. Well, my standards are pretty lofty. You know, Dusty was a three-time world champion and he started everybody and their mother when it comes to giving them their debuts and their breaks. He really had a significant chunk of wrestling’s total legacy. I don’t do this to be anything other than the greatest, anything other than the absolute best. That sounds ridiculous, but I really still believe in dreams and you get better every day.”

On wanting to retire at the age of 40:

“Every day since I started–which is really 15 years old– since I started. I’ve tried to be a better wrestler the next day. So, I’m going to be 35 in June. And I said I’m only going to do this until I’m 40 years old. I don’t know if that’s accurate. It’s rarely ever in wrestling. But, that’s what I said.”

On wanting to take care of his wife and mother:

“I want to make sure two people in particular never have to work a day in their life.” “That’s my wife, who will choose to work every day because that’s who she is, and my mother, who refuses to acknowledge that I’m still trying to do everything I can to take care of her. You know her. But I want to make sure they know I did it, and I did it with wrestling.”
