– We present a video of Cody Rhodes (aired last Monday during RAW) in Atlanta for an interview at the doctor’s. Cody says it’s rehabilitation: ups and downs. Three weeks ago he was at the height of his career, he would have liked to bring this momentum to Money in the Bank. He was flying very high, too close to the sun perhaps. After the operation he was told nine months. He’s going to watch Money in the Bank with a sour taste in his mouth. We have Omos which is giant and doesn’t need a ladder. There is Sami Zayn and his intelligence in the ring. And we have Seth Rollins, the man with the most briefcase cashings in the company. It would be crazy if history repeated itself and Seth won the contract to become champion. But if Seth wins, he’ll be the first to congratulate him.
