Brandi Rhodes recently appeared as a guest on Steve Fall's "The Ten Count" at NBC Sports Boston for an in-depth interview to promote the WWE Royal Rumble 2023 pay-per-view this weekend at The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
During the discussion, the wife of Cody Rhodes spoke about "The American Nightmare" making his WWE comeback in the 30-man Royal Rumble match, as well as the status of his injury and recovery progress ahead of his highly-anticipated WWE comeback.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where she touches on these topics with her thoughts.
On Cody Rhodes returning to WWE at the Royal Rumble: “As far as wrestling is concerned, for me the most intriguing story is Cody trying to capture his dream. It’s been so fantastic except for the injury portion, but It’s just been really great to see him reconnect with this audience, kind of be completely welcomed back home coming back to WWE, and for them to have his back in this journey. It’s really, really fun to see and I’m excited for him to get back.”
On the status of Cody’s recovery from his injury: “All of the work that he’s been doing to get back has been really good. I went with him to his physical therapist yesterday to finally see, because he’s been ragging on me the entire time, ‘you haven’t come, you haven’t come.’ So, l’m like ‘Okay, I’m coming to see’, and I was really impressed with how he looks now. He doesn’t look like anything happened, which is crazy because he had major surgery so he looks like the same Cody to me. The muscle mass is all there. He looks ready to me.”
