Cody Rhodes On Which Gimmick He Misses, WWE In Bridgeport Tonight (Reports Wanted), Barrett, NAO

- As noted earlier, The Courant has an interview with Cody Rhodes here, who was promoting tonight's live event in Bridgeport, CT. During the interview, Cody was asked about his past gimmicks and if he missed the mustache.
"I don't miss the mustache," Rhodes admitted. "It was a wonderful talking point at signings, and I felt very much like an '80s professional wrestler with the mustache. It was like, you'd see me in the airport and know I did something silly. I think if there's one [character] in particular that I miss — I didn't realize I was ever going to take the mask off, which was kind of stupid because I was 27 when I had it. You've got a lot of career [left]. You haven't even entered your prime yet. This may not be the endgame, but I really enjoyed being under that thing. There was this side of me that it brought out. There was also this eerie confidence I had with certain elements of my game. I say I miss it, but the truth is that mask is under the ring at every WWE show. I guess it's a bit of a spoiler, but at some point in my career, I wouldn't be surprised if I pulled the apron up and then put it on one more time, that's for sure."
