Cody Rhodes

Cody Rhodes may be the most clinical Superstar in the WWE locker room. Whether it’s the gear he is wearing to the ring that night or the answer to a WWE Classics question, the second-generation Superstar always takes his time before making a decision. So we weren’t at all surprised when Rhodes explained his thought process before rewriting history for us.

“Bret Hart versus Shawn Michaels from WrestleMania XII is my favorite match,” Rhodes said in his deliberate style. “But I wouldn’t want to place myself in that match because it’s almost sacrilege to do so.”

In typical Cody fashion, he sidestepped the vaunted 60-minute Iron Man Match between “Hit Man” and HBK in favor of a more unexpected choice.

“I would put myself at [In Your House 16: Calgary Stampede] and I would be on the team with [Goldust], Ken Shamrock, The Road Warriors and ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin against the Canadians,” Rhodes revealed. (WATCH)

Opting to step into the boots of his bizarre brother, Cody placed himself into a wild scuffle that saw The Texas Rattlesnake captain a team against Bret Hart, Jim Neidhart, Owen Hart, The British Bulldog and Brian Pillman in front of a Calgary, Alberta, crowd that was absolute bonkers.

“That was one of the most energetic environments,” Cody said. “It was absolute chaos — almost a riot.”

That night in the Saddledome, Austin was pinned by Owen after a ringside brawl with members of the extended Hart family led to mayhem in the ring. Would the showdown have gone any different with Cody in action?

“Absolutely not,” the former Intercontinental Champion admitted. “The Harts still would have gotten involved, people would have been punched that shouldn’t have punched and it still would have been chaos.”
