Former WWE Star Cody Rhodes was recently a guest on Edge and Christian’s Pod of Awesomeness where they talked about a variety of professional wrestling topics. During the podcast, Cody revealed how Rey Mysterio helped him when he was in WWE and the life debt he owes to him.
Cody said that he feels he owes a life debt to Rey Mysterio because Rey was the one who told Vince McMahon that he wanted to work with him at WrestleMania.
“I have a Wookiee life debt to Rey Mysterio and he doesn’t even know it.” Cody continued, “Rey was kind of the one who ribbed me and brought me into the office that day with Vince [McMahon] and said, ‘I want to work Cody at WrestleMania – he [has] got some good ideas.’ And I did, thank God. And that’s where I think Vince kind of even played me. He said, like, ‘oh, do you have it on paper?’ and I actually had it on paper in my bag and I handed it to him. And after that, he kind of just grumbled and I got a ‘yes’ out of that grumble. I owe Rey everything I have, man. He [doesn’t] even know. He [doesn’t] even spell my name right, C-O-D-E-Y. That’s got to be a rib.”
