Dustin Rhodes Wishes Cody Rhodes Was Still In AEW
Dustin Rhodes misses Cody in AEW
When you think of the big moments of AEW history, you’re bound to think of Cody and Dustin Rhodes’ monumental blood spattered brawl at Double Or Nothing 2019.
Now with Cody back in WWE, Dustin is the sole member of the Rhodes family still working for AEW, and Dustin has given his thoughts on Cody’s departure during an appearance on Talk is Jericho:
"Kind of down, a little bit. But Cody, he’s still young. There’s such an age gap - 16 years. He’s kind of in his prime now, but watching him return on WrestleMania was just huge. I’m not gonna miss any of his stuff. He’s on the rise to become a champion, and I really think he’s set the tone for that in his last eight years of work and things that he’s done," Dustin said.
Rhodes continued, noting the differences between himself and Cody:
"He’s very professional. He’s very different than I am. We’re two completely opposite people. He has that creative mind like my dad had, and I’m more grunt, the worker in the family. But he is surpassing everything. He’s doing amazing. But yeah, I wish he was still here," Dustin continued.
Chris Jericho also noted how he misses Cody’s presence in AEW:
"I get texts from him, actually quite frequently. He goes, ‘I miss you guys, man. I miss you guys’. I do miss having him around. I got much closer with him, for obvious reasons, in AEW, than I ever was in WWE. But I still always had a connection with him in WWE as well. He just always was the type of guy that...I like that guy," Jericho said.
