In a recent interview with Fox News, Cody Rhodes shared his thoughts on the current state of WWE as WrestleMania 40 approaches.

Rhodes will team with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins to face off against The Rock and Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 (Night One), while Rhodes will challenge Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title on the second night.

Rhodes said, “I’ve heard it coined as the Renaissance Era, and I really like that outlook on it. For me, as a wrestler, I’m most excited that we no longer have to stand in the shadow of the Attitude Era because of the last two years we’ve done better business than they ever did — and they did exceptional, unbelievable, amazing business. I’m only making comparisons on a black and white level, dollars and cents, in terms of what WWE’s been able to do over the last two years.”

He continued, “I mentioned Renaissance because of all the things we’re trying, the changing of the programming and also the characters. They now appeal differently. Every year has its signature thing. There was Hulkamania — eat your vitamins and say your prayers. There was the Attitude Era — the (Jerry) Springer-type crash TV. Now, we have a more, reach-across-the-aisle and connect-to-the-audience-type relatable superstars. We still have larger than life, no doubt, but that’s all going into this very, like I said, Renaissance Era.”
