Cody Says the Stardust Character Broke Him

Posted By James Walsh on 03/25/20


A fan on Twitter recently asked Cody about his run as Stardust in WWE, which he has spoken out against several times. Cody said he ultimately blamed himself for how things turned out, as he wasn’t doing his best work as Stardust.

He wrote: “Not pushing Stardust wasn’t the crime, the character had broke me and I was a subpar performer under the paint during that period. The crime was not capitalizing on 2010-12 where I was cooking with gas and my live event work was top level consistent. In the end, blame is on me.”

Sometimes, I think... WWE had Cody Rhodes portray Stardust for TWO years.

Like... that's a lot to think about. What were they actually thinking?

Even after a year they could have done a whole 'Cody Rhodes reborn' type of angle. It's hard to rationalise how they wasted him.
