• Emma Reveals What Advice Cody Rhodes Gave Her After Her WWE Release
During a recent interview with TV Insider, Tenille Dashwood talked about life after getting released from WWE and immediately getting offers for appearances, advice that she got from Cody Rhodes on her release and more.
Below are the highlights:
On life after getting released from WWE and immediately getting offers for appearances:
“It made me feel things will be okay. That there is a different lifestyle out there and this way it can be a bit more rewarding doing things on my time and on my schedule and my way. It can be a little scary in the beginning, not knowing what’s coming. But once everything started to unravel and appearances were set, it just feels like the same kind of thing I was doing. It’s just a little more rewarding meeting the fans, having merchandise for them, and all those little things that come with it now.”
On advice that she got from Cody Rhodes on her release:
“We talked about how to go about things and make sure I enjoy it and taking advantage of the opportunities I have now. Just to do the things I haven’t been able to do in years. With WWE you don’t always get to do things the way you like to do them, so now he said to remember that I’m in control and can do things my way. To be doing things for a reason and to wrestle around the world. And not to do it for job, but to do it because you love and enjoy it and travel and meet people and wrestle. It was to remember all that.”
• Corey Graves Comments On If He’s A Heel Or Babyface
During a recent appearance on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, Corey Graves commented on if he thinks of himself as a heel commentator.
Below is what Graves said:
“I side with a lot of heel mentalities. I can justify it because I generally was a heel as a wrestler, so I can justify just about anything. A lot of times it is outrageous and ridiculous which is why I love to say it because it is funny for me to be able to give a backhanded justification for something that was clearly messed up and out of line, but that was just me entertaining myself. I am not the ‘bad guy’ Commentator. That is passe.”
