PostSubject: Cody Rhodes Talks Passing Of His Father & Why Stardust Came Back & Not Him   Fri Sep 25, 2015 11:24 am

I have a column for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review every Monday and Friday. Today’s column features Cody Rhodes talking about the passing of his father and his legacy. Here’s an excerpt:

One of the most famous and significant men ever to wrestle professionally, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, passed away in June. I recently spoke with WWE Superstar Stardust, played by Dusty’s son, Cody Rhodes. Stardust and I talked, as only Stardust can, about his new tag partners, NXT and jokes played on the road.

The conversation changed tones when I brought up Dusty Rhodes. Stardust said he wasn’t the best person to talk about that, but Cody Rhodes was. After a moment of silence on the phone, I was no longer speaking to the charismatic, wacky character of Stardust. It was the sincere tone of Cody Rhodes’ voice, and he opened up about the passing of his father.

Q: Cody, can you say whatever you would like to say about the passing of your father Dusty Rhodes?

A: What a bad summer for sports entertainment. When you lose The Dream and you lose “Hot Rod” (Roddy Piper). These are not arguably, just genuinely, in anybody’s top five or top ten. The word used now is they are icons, and there’s very few true icons of the industry. I was and I feel like I still am, very close to my dad. I haven’t really let him go. It’s hard when you see a ring, and I think about all the times you saw him in it. It’s great though that you ask, because the Dusty Rhodes tag tournament taking place in NXT is something he would really be proud of because of all the platforms it gives to talent, including independent talent that came in for a shot to win the Dusty Rhodes tag tournament. I will actually be there myself, (as) me — for the first time a while on WWE programming — Cody Rhodes and my brother will be there to present the trophy, which I’m looking forward to seeing. I had some help in preparing it for whomever is victorious in said tag team tournament. It’s a great way to honor him, and I think we continue to honor him. WWE just put it all out there. A lot of families lose a loved one and they don’t get the chance to see video packages and tributes. They have to do all that themselves and put it together. It was done for me, and I’m forever in their debt for that.
