As fans gear up for WrestleMania 40 taking place in Philadelphia, PA this weekend, let’s take a look back at an interview we did with Cody Rhodes from 13 years ago.

As the son of WWE Hall of Famer the “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, Cody Rhodes grew up admiring his father and watching him capture the imagination of wrestling fans worldwide. Now Cody is ready to carry on his father’s legacy while carving out one of his own in WWE. Cody’s road to success started when he teamed with Hardcore Holly, as the two captured the World Tag Team Championship in 2007.

Besides being the son of “the son of a plumber,” Cody seems like he was destined for the squared circle. He had a stellar high school wrestling career, winning major tournaments before signing a deal with Ohio Valley Wrestling, WWE’s developmental territory. While training for his debut on the big stage, Cody was honored when his father asked him to help induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame. It was highly emotional night for father and son, who are extremely close.

“He and I, we’re like best friends, we’re really close,” Cody told at the time. “So for us to be together – if ultimately he were to say, ‘I don’t want anything further to do with sports entertainment,’ this would be a wonderful way to cap it off.”

Rhodes made an appearance on our show to promote his appearance on the Syfy series, “Warehouse 13.” You can listen and download the podcast above.

WrestleMania 40 kicks off tonight, April 6th, at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA, concluding on Sunday, April 7th.
