During a recent interview with Mark Andrews for My Love Letter to Wrestling, WWE Superstar Sami Zayn discussed Cody Rhodes’ current storyline in WWE.
Rhodes has been engaged in a feud with Brock Lesnar after failing to dethrone Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On Cody Rhodes’ return to WWE and how it influenced his storyline with The Bloodline: “There were two parts to it. One, Cody genuinely did have a lot of respect and equity with the audience, especially coming back from that injury, and they just like him. So, it wasn’t the same thing as Batista returning, who they hadn’t seen in years at that point, and they viewed him as a part-timer. You touched on something, which was the trust. At that point, the audience had learned to trust wherever the story was going. Even if they were skeptical and even if there were people who were like, ‘Nah, I really want to see Sami and Roman or they should go this direction.’ Over the eight months or whatever it was prior to that point, they learned to…even if it wasn’t what they wanted exactly, we earned enough trust for them to go, ‘Well, okay, let’s see where it goes.’”
On how Cody’s storyline is still building: “I do think, strictly from a story perspective, it would have been great to see Cody put a bow on it, but it’s still building. That’s the thing that people, it’s so hard to understand about WWE. We build to these things that appear to be these culminations, but there is always a TV show next week. We look at these things through the lens of TV shows and season finales. Even me, ‘Yeah, of course, Cody has to win,’ but you have to hold on to that trust. I’m a fan, I’m invested, and I trust they’ll pay this off properly at the right time and let’s see where it goes.”
