• “He looks ready to me” – Update On Cody Rhodes’ Return
Cody Rhodes tore his pec while working out a few months back. He even wrestled with this injury in a Hell in a Cell match against Seth Rollins.
After defeating Rollins inside Hell in a Cell, Rollins assaulted him the next night on RAW and Cody was written off WWE programming.
During an interview on Ten Count, Brandi Rhodes had the following to say about Cody’s rehab and return to the ring:
“He needs to wrestle. It’s in his blood. It’s part of his makeup. But now, he’s been great through all of this. All of the work that he’s been doing to get back has been really good.
I went with him to his physical therapist yesterday to finally see because he’s been ragging on me the entire time, ‘You haven’t come, you haven’t come, you have to come.’ So I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m coming to see.’
I was really just impressed with how he looks now. He doesn’t look like anything happened which is crazy because he had major surgery. So he looks like the same Cody to me. The muscle mass is all there, you know, he looks ready to me, but I’m not a doctor.”

• Old School WWF Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 70th birthday of Old School WWF Veteran “Playboy” Buddy Rose (Real name: Paul Perschmann).
He was considered a Legend in several territories such as Verne Gagne’s AWA and Don Owen’s Pacific Northwest, but also made a name for himself in the WWF during the 80s.
Buddy Rose (as The Executioner) wrestled Tito Santana in the opening match of the first ever WrestleMania in 1985.
When he returned to the World Wrestling Federation in 1990, he was used mainly as a ‘Jobber To The Stars’.
In 2019 Buddy Rose was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE!
November 27, 1952 – April 28, 2009
