Cody Rhodes Wants To Induct AEW Star Into Hall Of Fame

Cody Rhodes AEW

Cody Rhodes wants to see brother Dustin Rhodes in the Hall of Fame.

The American Nightmare feels that the AEW wrestler is more than worthy of the prestigious honour, and would love to be the one to do the honours of welcoming his brother into the prestigious group, which also contains their father Dusty Rhodes.

Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Rhodes expressed the wish to see The Natural become a Hall of Famer, and would also love to team with him once again:

“I would like to induct Dustin into the Hall of Fame,” says Rhodes. “I would also never turn down an opportunity to team with him again, and we’ve had an even better experience wrestling against each other.”

The WrestleMania main eventer would go on to describe his relationship with the wrestling veteran, whilst also recognising the skills and knowledge of mentor Arn Anderson:

“It’s a very unique brotherhood,” says Rhodes. “Dustin’s an all-time great. I’m not saying he’s going anywhere, but he won’t be here forever. I hope people appreciate that he is still trying to go at the highest level and trying to pass his knowledge on, and I would jump at the chance to do one more thing with him. To induct him in the Hall of Fame, which is so well deserved on his part–and Arn Anderson. Arn is blood in his own way. I’d love to do more with Dustin and Arn.”

Did Cody Rhodes Wrestle Dustin Rhodes in WWE?

Dustin Rhodes’ time in WWE is best known for portraying the Goldust character. Goldust would face off against brother Cody once in WWE at the Fastlane pay-per-view in 2015, where The American Nightmare portrayed Stardust and the older brother being victorious. The Stardust gimmick was not well received, with Dusty Rhodes himself being upset over the character.

Prior to the Rhodes brothers being opponents, the sons of Dusty Rhodes were tag partners, capturing the Tag Team Championships on two separate occasions.

Both Cody and Dustin Rhodes would have the match they always wanted to have at the inaugural AEW pay-per-view Double Or Nothing in 2019, which received critical acclaim and was widely regarded as one of the best matches on the show.

Now back in WWE, Cody Rhodes looks to finish the story and defeat Roman Reigns to become the new World Champion. However, if someone else were to dethrone Reigns first, Rhodes has stated he would have no issue with that.
