– With WrestleMania 28 just over two weeks away, Intercontinental champion Cody Rhodes is said to be working through a few nagging injuries. According to a report at f4wonline.com, Cody has been seen limping around backstage at recent live events and was noticeably in pain backstage the past two weeks.
This time of year is especially rough on the WWE crew, with everybody working extra hard during the buildup to WrestleMania. Despite his overall soreness, Cody will be able to wrestle Big Show at WrestleMania and is expected to retain the Intercontinental championship.
– Many WWE legends will be appearing at the WrestleMania weekend festivities, including Roddy Piper, Terry Funk, Dory Funk Jr., Jimmy Hart, Gerald Brisco, Hacksaw Duggan, Paul Bearer, Tony Atlas, Gene Okerlund and Hillbilly Jim.
– We reported earlier this week that Jim Ross is in Tampa, FL evaluating WWE’s developmental talent at Florida Championship Wrestling. Former intercontinental champion Goldust is also at FCW this week. He tweeted on Tuesday:
“Thanks to chris hero and xavier woods for the great workout at fcw…..”
“Great to see fcw boys today and @JRsBBQ ….love passing on my knowledge to to future of the business”
