Cody Rhodes Discusses Upcoming A&E Biography Of Dusty Rhodes
Cody Rhodes really likes the Dusty Rhodes Biography that A&E produced and adds that is one of the reasons he came back to WWE.
For the past two years, A&E Television has been airing biography episodes about some of the greatest professionals of all time in association with WWE. It’s part of the A&E Biography Legends series.
This Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET there will be a two-hour A&E Biography documentary about the life of the legendary WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, who is the father of current WWE superstar Cody Rhodes and former WWE Intercontinental Champion/AEW wrestler Dustin “Goldust” Rhodes.
During his legendary wrestling career, the late, great “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes was a former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion that was also the booker of NWA for many years while coming up with concepts like Starrcade, WarGames, Halloween Havoc, and other things. Prior to his death in 2015, Dusty was a coach for many current WWE stars while he worked on the NXT brand. Recently, Cody Rhodes even admitted he was jealous of some of “Dusty’s Kids” that learned from his father.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Cody spoke about being a Producer on the Dusty Rhodes A&E Biography while adding that getting to work on it was one of the reasons Cody returned to WWE in 2022 after six years away.
“WWE and A&E memorializing my father in this documentary has been a blessed experience. Helping catalog, correct and bring light to Dusty’s life was a grand responsibility and one of the reasons I returned to WWE. Seeing the facts that support the legend, make this a beautiful watch for old fans and new fans alike.”
Cody Rhodes went on to praise the director for doing a great job on the documentary.
“The best part of producing this doc was not the countless rewatches of old promos and matches, but being able to watch for the first time ever an unseen interview only weeks before he passed. That interview serves as a spine for this documentary and in his own words, Dusty answers the question, ‘What was the most important thing to you?’ [Director] Rob Liano and his team did a wonderful job.”
While Cody Rhodes is proud of the Dusty Rhodes biography on A&E, he did have a rough time over the last week since he lost to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 and got destroyed by Brock Lesnar on Raw one night later.
