Slam Wrestling is featuring an interview with Cody Rhodes discussing Wrestlemania 27 and his scheduled match with Rey Mysterio at the “Super Bowl” of wrestling in a few weeks.

“I was talking to my dad (Wednesday night) and he had some advice about the Super Bowl, Wrestlemania and other major sporting events … he said they were just another game. I don’t agree with that. It’s not just another game. If someone is whispering in your ear that this is the biggest event in sports entertainment history, you move faster, you jump higher. You’re trying to give fans something they’ll remember forever.

I’m not one for false promises, exaggeration or hyperbole. In sports entertainment, you hear a lot of those. But I really believe this match has potential to steal the show. We’re stacked up against some beautiful matches and this is my hometown so that would be an added bonus. It’s our best superstars. I wouldn’t feel comfortable without having a quality story. I used to think I should be on Mania, but looking back, no, I shouldn’t have been. I wasn’t ready.”
