It is all the time enjoyable when our pursuits collide in enjoyable and unusual methods. Certainly one of my favourite issues to look at virtually any evening of the week is professional wrestling. I have been a giant fan of Stone Chilly Steve Austin since he broke out as a mega-star within the 90’s, and since I know him as an actual outdoorsy type of man, I by no means thought he’d be maintaining with what’s fashionable on the planet of gaming. In a promo for an upcoming episode of The Damaged Cranium Classes, the place Steve Austin interviews wrestlers and people across the trade, he shocked me and his most up-to-date visitor, WWE’s latest large acquisition, “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes.
In a rapid-fire interview used as a industrial for The Damaged Cranium Classes, Austin begins out by asking Rhodes which Zelda recreation is the perfect. The American Nightmare immediately and confidently replied, “Ocarina of Time. Palms down,” when out of nowhere, Austin shoots again by saying, “No dude, Breath of the Wild.” What?! He is aware of about Zelda. WHAT? He is speaking about Hyperlink. WHAT? The elf boy with the sword. WHAT? He fights in opposition to Ganon. Cody follows up by calling Breath of the Wild a “daring selection.”
Sport Informer respectfully disagrees with each of them, although their selections are solidly within the prime three. You possibly can learn our rating of each Zelda recreation right here.
Cody Rhodes, when you did not know, is a large Zelda fan. He has a triforce tattooed on his ring finger, and you’ll often spot that very same Hyrulian relic on his wrestling gear. His return to WWE at this 12 months’s Wrestlemania was even greeted with a quote straight from Ocarina of Time by WWE commentator Corey Graves. Like Cody, loads of his era of wrestlers are very a lot into video video games. Fellow WWE Celebrity Xavier Woods (AKA Austin Creed) has run a profitable YouTube channel for WWE referred to as UpUpDownDown and is at the moment a number on the not too long ago revived G4 community. Different wrestlers like AEW’s Adam Cole, Evil Uno, and Kip Sabian in addition to former WWE stars Cesaro and Tyler Breeze are all energetic Twitch streamers.
Stone Chilly casually uttering the title of Nintendo’s iconic recreation is an astonishing second I absolutely didn’t count on to see in 2022, however right here we’re. You possibly can watch the video within the tweet embedded above. The total episode of The Damaged Cranium Classes with Cody Rhodes will air on the WWE Community by way of Peacock this Friday.
