• Cody Rhodes Comments On Stardust Gimmick Leading To His WWE Departure
During a recent interview with FOX Sports, Cody Rhodes talked about how the Stardust gimmick led to his departure from WWE, his issues with Kenny Omega & more. Below are the highlights:
On how the Stardust gimmick led to his departure from WWE:
“Maybe I just wasn’t meant to do Stardust as long as I had done it, so it didn’t feel right. I remember putting some concept art together for what I would look like as just Cody Rhodes, as just Cody, the wrestler.
And it really just appealed to me in such a way that if I couldn’t do it in WWE, I thought well, I’ve saved my money, I know a little bit about the game, I’m going to go and do it on my own and see how I do. And it ended up being the best decision I’ve ever made.”
On issues between him and Kenny Omega:
“I’m not capable of being in a group where I’m not the leader. I did it once earlier in my career with Legacy, and that was cool because I was young and green and a rookie in the industry, but now no more. After a World Title run you can’t really call someone else your leader.
And I think that is this natural tension, that very really exists, because here Omega is with this reputation of being the best wrestler in the world and here I am with that mainstream appeal that helped gain a bunch of new fans for the Bullet Club. And the fact that I think Matt likes me more, and Nick likes Kenny, it’s all real. So why not have a match? Why not make it real?”
