Cody Rhodes, Midwife?

Would this development make Dusty Rhodes the son of a plumber AND the father of a baby deliverer?

Don't look now, but Cody Rhodes may have a second career if this whole wrestling thing doesn't pan out for him. Renee Young sent this tweet just a few hours ago:
Firstly, I wonder why a pregnant person was flying when she was that pregnant. I thought doctors disallowed that sort of thing? Then again, maybe the baby was premature, in which case my best vibes go out to both mama and child. Secondly, how does one "almost" deliver a child? My guess is that either Rhodes was the first guy off the bench in case a doctor wasn't on the flight, or he started in on the delivery process and was either interrupted by landing or by the fact that it was a false alarm. Either way, the fact that he was in the position to deliver a baby makes him all the more admirable.

As fate would turn out, he isn't the only former member of Rhodes Scholars to have an interesting addendum to his name. Apparently, Damien Sandow is an honest-to-God Kentucky Colonel, much in the same way that Harland Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame was. If this whole "random cosplay" gimmick that Sandow has fails him or needs a change, Col. Sandow might not be the worst thing in the world for him to fall back upon, especially as an evolution or hybridization of his former "intellectual savior of the masses" deal he back to the main roster on.
