WWE.com has an interview up with Cody Rhodes regarding the injury he suffered a few weeks ago. Here is part of that interview:
WWE.COM: How soon did you know you were in trouble, and what was going through your head at the time? Do you remember anything in the ring or backstage after it happened?
RHODES: I thought I broke my arm, and I was in a very bad position in the ring. You know, ring awareness is something I’ve always been fond of — having ring awareness, having mat awareness. Always knowing where I am at all times. Especially in a tag team situation, knowing if I’m on my side of the ring. I wasn’t. I was in enemy territory and Daniel Bryan had me wide open.
Actually, everything after Kane dropped me, I don’t remember. I remember hitting the mat one more time, and then I thought that I immediately tagged out, but watching back, there’s a whole period of a minute, a minute-and-a-half, where I faked out Daniel Bryan, who missed a headbutt and I just laid there. I didn’t know that — I thought I was much more cognizant than I was, but watching back I didn’t know that I was on the apron, I didn’t know that the doctor was tugging at my boots.
I just was contemplating in my head — the only thing I remember thinking was if I could get in there and kick [Daniel Bryan], then tag Damien real quick and tag out, that I could offer something still. Damien looked at me one time after I said, “tag me in,” after I got my bearings a little bit, but he certainly had no intentions of tagging me in, at great cost to himself. So I owe Damien Sandow a lot.
WWE.COM: Speaking of your tag team partner, are you still in regular contact with Damien Sandow?
RHODES: We haven’t had as much personal contact as I’d like. One of the things I most look forward to with Damien is our Monday, Wednesday and Friday “war room” sessions where we would discuss everything in the WWE Universe, and all of the Superstars and Divas. It was a real gripe fest, but a nice period of time to vent.
Now he’s navigating the murky waters of singles competiton and I wish him — genuinely — good luck. I just hope he doesn’t forget that Team Rhodes Scholars was on a very steep climb to the top.
