Mysterio Interview: Cody Rhodes and WrestleMania, The Rock, More

– Rey Mysterio recently spoke with Jon Robinson of to promote WWE’s All Stars video game. Here are some highlights:



Jon Robinson: “WWE All Stars” is all about matching current stars up against legends to see who is the best ever. One match that they have in the game is you against Eddie Guerrero in a battle to see who is the top high flier of all time. Does that bring back a lot of memories for you?

Rey Mysterio: No doubt. Every now and then, I go back and watch some of our matches in order to bring back old moves that I’ve done but I just haven’t been able to do with no one else. I might try and do these with somebody new, so I go back and YouTube some of my matches with Eddie, because I felt that we had some of the best matches, as a wrestler, as a person. I’m aware that most of the fans think the same way, so I think that now when I play the new “All Stars” game, my son will probably pick Rey and I’ll probably pick Eddie. Of course, it will bring good memories without a doubt.

Jon Robinson: I was at Elimination Chamber, and you got thrown headfirst into the chamber glass.

Rey Mysterio: [laughs] Yes, I did. I couldn’t stop. In the heat of the moment, it’s all good, but then, oh man, it was a stinger. The next day you’re feeling it more, then the following day it’s even worse. It builds up until you get to day four or day five, then the swelling starts to go down, the bruising starts to go away and you feel less pain. But it was pretty bad.

Jon Robinson: You’ve been feuding with Cody Rhodes, and now his father, the legendary Dusty Rhodes, is also involved in the storyline. What do you see in Cody that made you want to work such a big program with him heading into WrestleMania?

Rey Mysterio: First off, he comes from a dynasty. I grew up watching Dusty and was a big fan. I’ve seen Cody’s brother, Goldust, too, and there’s a generation there that you just can’t let slide by and close your eyes and pretend that it’s not there. It’s there, and it’s been pushing strong ever since Randy Orton had Teddy [DiBiase] and Cody with him. So me, being a second-generation wrestler as well, I figure why not clash together. I really feel strong that there’s a lot of material here that we’ll be able to give fans to enjoy. That’s what I’m all about. I’m all about entertaining my fans.

Jon Robinson: Speaking of bringing back old memories, The Rock made his return to Raw recently and will be at WrestleMania. What does that mean to the WWE to have him back?

Rey Mysterio: I want to say that maybe for a while, our fan base, the WWE Universe have been asking themselves for a very long time if The Rock is coming back, when is The Rock coming back. Now here he is, and I think everyone who had been wondering about that were very entertained. And I’m not going to lie to you, I was at home and I was entertained. But there was a big comeback from what The Rock said last Monday, so now it’s getting good because John Cena doesn’t have tape over his mouth. He can spit, and when he spits, he can get nasty, so it’s going to be good. That’s all I can say; it’s going to be good. Anytime you get something new or something old that was good that fans have been waiting to see but hasn’t been given to them, then boom, it’s back, it’s like wow, and everyone is on the edge of their seats. Here we go. And this year, I think fans are going to be on the edge of their seats for WrestleMania, from the beginning to the end.
