Vince McMahon High On SmackDown Star, HBK Comments On Scott Hall Piece

— Vince McMahon is said to be high on Cody Rhodes after lacking faith in the second generation wrestler in the past.

Reportedly, the WWE head would not commit to promoting Rhodes as a top level star because he felt he overacts.

— Shawn Michaels posted a statement on Twitter regarding ESPN’s piece on Scott Hall, which aired Wednesday evening on E:60.

He wrote, “FYI- I did not see the piece on Scott. Scott. Kev, Kid & Hunter r my friends. Sharing our personal info or insight on here aint happening. Much like when u ask me my opinion on RAW or other wrestlers. I don’t do it. The net is flooded w/opinions. I don’t think u need one more.”

    I think it’s hilarious that Vince McMahon has the hubris to accuse anyone else of overacting

  • tombstonepildriver

    Did vinny mac snort cody rhodes or shoot him up to get high on him?

  • venom

    I would like to see Cody feud with Goldust or Mankind.

  • tombstonepildriver

    Cody need to get some speach thearapy, I will never like him on the mic with that speach impediment.

    Cody Rhodes is the best on SD currently. HBK is all class

  • Stevie P

    Honestly I think Cody Rhodes is the best heel WWE has right now. I think he has it all and he has a HUGE future.

    It’s an old school tribute, back in the old days knee pads were the exception not the rule

  • Jeff

    Yeah I always wondered why he never put knee pads on. He will get hurt one day if he doesnt.

  • Dave

    Please give Cody some kneepads!

  • Freakzilla

    I hope he does move back to RAW and get lost in the shuffle. Can’t stand him from the minute he walked into WWE.

    Vince was right about Cody Rhodes, he does overact. He was pretty bad with Legacy. However, that tendency can work in a performer’s favor if they’re given an over-the-top character to play, as it has with Cody. Even his lisp becomes effective in that context, as it highlights the abnormal speech-patterns of his character. I really hope his push continues, because he is genuinely entertaining as a twisted heel.

    And, oh my god, I laughed so bloody hard when they kept cutting to Randy Orton laying comatose with a bag over his head, with the announcers trying to be dramatic and somber. That was priceless.

    More Rhodes, Ryder, Ziggler, Truth, and Miz. Less Mason Ryan. In fact, no Mason Ryan. Ever.

    I’m really glad to see Cody Rhodes being acknowledged by Vinny. Cody has a lot of potential and is one of the best people on the mic on the roster (ignore his gimmick which is why he talks slow and disgruntled).

  • Seth

    Well said by HBK.

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    This is good and bad for Rhodes. Great Vince likes him but is he gets moved to RAW… Just like most Smackdown stars, he will probably get lost in the shuffle.
