Cody Rhodes interview: Here’s the extended cut of my interview with The Essence of Mustachioed Magnificence
Cody Rhodes was destined to follow his father and his half-brother, Dustin "Goldust" Rhodes, into the business. As a teenager, he refereed matches for his dad's now-defunct independent promotion and sneaked into mini matches when he thought his dad wasn't looking. "I never imagined doing anything else," Rhodes says.
The second-generation star is keeping his family tradition alive in the world's biggest wrestling company. On May 20, Rhodes is one of the featured grapplers on Monday Night Raw, broadcasting live from the Sprint Center on the USA Network. After a lengthy tour of the United Kingdom, Rhodes called The Pitch from his home in Johns Creek, Georgia, to talk about his memories of Kansas City, his mustache and his challenge to Morgan Freeman.

The crowd was begging for Ziggler to come out, chanting his name throughout Alberto Del Rio's match against Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter. Del Rio played up an ankle injury after Swagger locked on an ankle lock, which he somehow escaped and turned into his armbar submission for the win.
The Wrestling Observer reported that WWE's writers were in a panic after Dwayne Johnson no-showed and left to re-write Monday's show, which was supposed to include an angle between Rock and Brock Lesnar to tease their potential WrestleMania 30 main event match.

Afflalo will be treated with rest and physical therapy. In 64 games, Afflalo averaged 16.5 points (shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 85.7 from the line), 1.13 3-pointers, 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists, .6 steals and .2 blocks while playing 36 minutes.
Michael Moody, Bearer's son, told TMZ that his father's death could have been prevented. Bearer was suffering from supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) -- a dangerously high heart rate. If treated, SVT usually isn't deadly but symptoms are similar to anxiety and heartburn so it's often ignored, TMZ reported.

TMZ broke the story, and Masters told the gossip site that his uncle called him to his mother's Los Angeles home after the neighbor barricaded himself in. Masters arrived on the scene, and the neighbor yelled that he'd set the house on fire if anyone tried to enter. Masters couldn't talk the guy out of the house, so he did what a reasonable person might: He called the cops.

Jim Ross' famed call of The Undertaker throwing Mankind off the Hell in a Cell cage seems to be the new thing to put over vicious NBA dunks (see Jordan, DeAndre). So it's no surprise that someone put good ol' JR's call over LeBron James' throw down on Jason Terry last night in the Heat's 23rd straight win. And yes, King, Jet was broken in half!
Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H in a No Holds Barred match at WrestleMania; Triple H's career at stake (video)
Sure, Heyman made a sexist remark about Mr. H's wife, Stephanie (c'mon, Paul E., women are not property to be won or lost in wrestling matches in the year 2013), but Triple H took it too far, pummeling a guy that's not a fighter and giving him a pink belly. Trips did manage to control himself enough not to sign the contract with Heyman's blood (it is a PG show, after all). So good on you for the restraint, H.

Book's induction video is so much awesome crammed into about four minutes. There are a) GWF references; b) spinaroonies; c) King Booker; d) a run down of Booker's title history; and e) Harlem Heat, including the infamous (but edited here) video of Booker telling Hulk Hogan, "We coming for you, n----!" Thumbs up, WWE video team.
