Cody Rhodes has given his take on the Dusty Classic, and named a team he’d like to present the trophy to.

Since Cody Rhodes made his dramatic return to WWE, there has been plenty of talk about him wanting to do the one thing his legendary father never did – win the WWE Championship.

Now, the legacy of Dusty Rhodes is carried on with the Dusty Classic Tag Team Tournament, which regularly takes place as part of NXT programming.

In an interview with The Daily Mail, Cody Rhodes has talked about how he’d love to be involved in the tournament in some way, but how it has to stay with the black and gold brand.

When it comes to the Dusty Classic I’d love to do anything to be involved, it’s obviously more NXT and that’s where we’re developing tomorrow’s superstars today and you want to keep it in their wheelhouse.

Continuing on, ‘The American Nightmare’ suggested that he’d like to be the one to present the trophy to the next winners – and touted some former NXT Tag Team Champions as potential winners – whilst also appreciating the legacy the tournament represents.

But I’d be more than happy to hand potentially Pretty Deadly that trophy or a different team cos there’s so much good going on down there. Shawn Michaels has done an incredible job and continues to do, but I love all things Dusty.

I just want to make sure he’s represented fairly, cos for a good time in the business he wasn’t. WWE has done a great job in letting you know what he did, how he did it and how it still affects what we do.

Cody Rhodes also lifted the lid on the transfer of creative power in WWE from Vince McMahon to Triple H.
