Cody Rhodes Talks To Sports Illustrated

Cody Rhodes Reveals Who He Feels Are The Top 5 Wrestlers In The World

Cody Rhodes recently spoke with Sports Illustrated’s “Extra Mustard” section to promote the upcoming “All In” event in September, as well as his upcoming ROH World Championship triple-threat match against Dalton Castle and Marty Scurll. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On who he feels are the top five pro wrestlers in the world right now: “In the modern era of reality is reality versus perception is reality, it’s simple. I am the best in the world. It’s 1: Cody; 2: Kenny [Omega]; 3: [Kazuchika] Okada; 4: Charlotte; 5: [John] Cena, with [Will] Ospreay creeping up on the list. It’s my responsibility with the event to live up to that ranking. I am unbelievably good at this, because of hard work and dedication.”

On Marty Scurll being added to the ROH World Championship match at the upcoming ROH: Best in the World pay-per-view: “I think Marty being included in this match is wonderful. He supersedes the ‘junior’ qualification. He has a great fan base. But Marty is Prince Lotor. He sits at my table, but doesn’t eat first. I do. Daddy eats first.”

On The Bullet Club never being topped: “As the leader of the Bullet Club, I can’t slow down now. I am an example for everybody who thought just slapping the Bullet Club logo on you would define your career. The Bullet Club keeps New Japan Pro Wrestling in the black. Far in the black. Because of me. I’m a part-timer in that company and I hold the Tokyo Dome merchandising record and Osaka’s. Funkos. Bucks on a career run. This Bullet Club may never be topped.”
