he is the son of Dusty Rhodes, who was a legendary WWE wrestler and promoter. Cody asked WWE to release him in 2016, as he didn’t like portraying the Stardust character. Cody stated in interviews that he told WWE writers that he wanted the Stardust character to end.
Arn Anderson spoke about all of that on his podcast. "I didn't dislike it from the fact that the costuming and Cody looked good in that character," Anderson said. "Every time I dealt with Cody from day one he would give you the best he could and I knew that there should be some good things happening for him in the business.
His attitude was good, his ability was good straight away. And they put this character on him and I didn't know how strongly he was against it until later. I thought he did a good job with it but there was no plan past that.
"To take Cody Rhodes, who everyone knew is the son of Dusty Rhodes, who doesn't have to do anything with Goldust or anything to do with the American Dream but do something to elevate that character. When they change you and your character and you just stay at a level push, if you don't go anywhere with that then what is the reason to change you if there were no positive plans to elevate you? That's what I couldn't figure out."
