Conrad Thompson and Cody Rhodes recently talked to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, where they discussed the Starrcast convention. You can check out a few highlights below:

Conrad on how he pitched the idea of Starrcast to Cody:

“I ran into Cody at the airport in Atlanta this past January when I was getting back from vacation and he was getting back from Wrestle Kingdom. I wasn’t sure it was him because he was sort of incognito, but I recognized Brandi. A few days went by, and he hit me with a DM saying, ‘Were you at international baggage claim?’ I told him I had an idea, and that’s when I started to pitch it.”

Cody Rhodes on Conrad as a promoter:

“Conrad is a fan and did not pretend to be a worker. He wanted to service the fans and be our partner, versus just piggyback. I sat with him in person, and anybody who brings me Johnnie Walker Blue is a ‘Nightmare’ family guy. I have a genuinely good feeling about his future as a promoter and business partner in my world.”
