As regular readers of the Best and Worst of WWE Raw column may know, when it comes to the world of sports-entertainment (read: “sports that aren’t actually sports”), there are few people more beloved at With Leather than WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes. The guy has it all. As the son of The American Dream Dusty Rhodes and brother of Dustin “Goldust” Rhodes he’s got a legit pro wrestling pedigree, he’s a former Intercontinental and Tag Team champion, he’s in a tag team with his BEST FRIEND~, he’s engaged to one of the most ridiculously beautiful women in the world and can grow … well, most of a mustache.
If you need further proof of Cody’s greatness, he answered “Morgan Freeman” when asked the Fight Club classic, “If you could fight any celebrity, who would you fight?” His explanation of why is even better than the image of Lucius Fox eating a Cross Rhodes:
When asked which celebrity he’d like to wrestle, Cody cheekily answered: “Morgan Feeman, because I feel like I could win because he’s old; although I’m sure he’s tough. But then we could sell it and he could narrate the match, like he narrates everything. He could explain everything because he’s such a great storyteller he could tell the story of me beating him. That would be wonderful.” (via Sowetan Live)
Cody Rhodes wants to beat up Morgan Freeman so he can win an easy fight and have it narrated. The only way that could be better is if Damien Sandow had overheard the interview, wondered aloud who Morgan Freeman was, then launched into a thing about how he wanted to Sir Walter Raleigh.
Readers, here’s your question for the day: If you could wrestle (or, for clarity’s sake, fight) a celebrity, who’d you choose? Let us know in the comments section below. I’m calling Zach Braff.
