Cody Rhodes recently spoke to Marvel.com about getting advice from Dusty Rhodes, Avengers Vs. X-Men and more. Here are the highlights: On Advice From His Father: The man gives me great tips every Wednesday, and every Saturday after he watches SmackDown, especially. It’s funny, with my dad being tied so close to the WWE he’s a bit biased. If he had his way, I’d be World champion now. So with that, I have to pull him in from that time-to-time. But he has this understanding of the inner workings of sports entertainment, better than almost anybody out there and that stuff is invaluable. And that’s great for me to know; I feel like at 26, I have knowledge of the backstage inner workings of sports entertainment more than most. On Avengers Vs. X-Men: Well, I think that right out of the gate, I love how epic this series is. I mean look at some of those matchups—you could make whole stories out of stuff like Red Hulk vs. Colossus! As a fan, it’s so cool to see some of these dream fight matchups happening all in one place. I’m also a pretty big Spider-Man fan, so whenever I get to see him mix it up with the X-Men, it’s a lot of fun. On Sunday’s PPV Bout With Christian: I’ve always had plans to move on to the World title, but in all honesty, I want to grab the Intercontinental title and become the first dual champion since The Ultimate Warrior. A lot of the top superstars of the WWE have something to stand on, like Randy Orton was the youngest World Heavyweight champion of all time, and Chris Jericho was the first Unified champion, he beat Steve Austin and The Rock in the same night. To cement a legacy, you can certainly do that by saying you were the first dual champion since Ultimate Warrior, and that’d be the goal for me. **SPOILERS** FOR SUNDAY’S WWE NO WAY OUT PPV!! (»»)
