SI: What makes you different from every other baseball announcer?
Rhodes: I don't pull any punches. If I like to go deer hunting or I don't want to ride the number 7 train in New York City, I tell it like it is. The common man wants to know what the hell a player eats, does he date and does he take Viagra.
SI: Your website lists you at 6'3" and 289-plus pounds. How many pluses are we talking about?
Rhodes: We're talking about 312 pounds. And I'm down to 6'1".
SI: Jesse Ventura pulled it off in Minnesota. What about Dusty Rhodes as the governor of Georgia?
Rhodes: If you were in my truck in Georgia and we went anywhere, you would think Elvis had gotten out. But I don't know if those people can vote.
SI: How would John Rocker have done in the old National Wrestling Alliance?
Rhodes: Rocker would have been one of the Four Horseman with Am Anderson, Ric Flair and Tully Blanchard. As the storyline went on, he would have become a good guy and become my partner.
SI: Who's the one guy in baseball who you'd love to take a crack at in the wrestling ring?
