Cody Rhodes Losing To Roman Reigns Was The Right Call, Says Dustin Rhodes

• Cody Rhodes Losing To Roman Reigns Was The Right Call, Says Dustin Rhodes

Cody Rhodes won the Men’s Royal Rumble match this year and main evented WrestleMania 39 for the biggest prize in professional wrestling – the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

This is something that Cody’s father (Dusty Rhodes) and Cody’s half-brother (Dustin Rhodes / Goldust) weren’t able to do.

On Busted Open Radio, Dustin said he’s very proud of The American Nightmare and a little jealous of his brother’s success:

“I’m super proud of Cody. He’s being shot to the moon right now, which is great, and that’s good for him. I hope he gets that big one, that dad never got, I’ve never won a World Title.

There is a little jealousy, on my part, because, ‘Man, why can’t I do that?’ you know what I mean? But it’s okay, it’s not like the bad jealousy thing, so. I’m extremely proud of him.

He’s going to be World Champion, I know it. I don’t know when, but he’s going to be World Champion. So keep doing it man, they’re making him pay for it. They’re making him earn it, and I like that.”

Dustin (who works in AEW) also noted that Roman Reigns winning at WrestleMania Hollywood was the right call:

“I went to Mania. I sat up in the box. I wasn’t allowed down or anything like that, but I was there. I went there for the reason that Cody was going to win the title, right? We didn’t know. We were just, this is his time.

It was a little frustrating when he didn’t win, but then at the same time, business wise, everybody in the world thought he was going to win that thing, but when you look it a week later, or whatever, you kind of analyze it, see what they’re doing with Brock right now, it makes sense.

Personally, I wish he would have won it. But was it the right call? Probably so. Probably, down the line, he doves to this thing and finally wins it, then it’s going to be that much bigger.”
