Cody Rhodes says Dusty told him to quit the WWE years ago

When it comes to the WWE, the company and the superstars welcome the talent of professional wrestling families which has been developed through several generations.

One of the most well-respected of these families is that which includes the late Dusty Rhodes and his two sons; Goldust and now ex-WWE superstar Cody Rhodes.

The relationship between these three professional wrestling legends is one which the WWE should have realised the importance of more, prior to Dusty Rhodes' tragic passing last year.

Wise words

As reported by Cageside Seats, Cody Rhodes recently spoke on the Wrestledelphia podcast, following his departure from WWE earlier this year.

During the interview, Rhodes explained that he knows his father would have supported his decision to part ways with the company as he actually told his son to ask for his release some four years ago.

The 31-year-old stated: "He told me to ask for my release after WrestleMania 28. I waited until WrestleMania 32 to take his advice."

Rhodes continued: "At the end of my WWE career, he was right that I should have made that decision maybe a little sooner."

New chapter

It is humbling to know that Dusty Rhodes would approve of such a tough decision with regard to his son's professional wrestling career.

Whilst it may have come later than The American Dream would have hoped, the future already looks promising for the WWE star formerly known as Stardust.

Cody Rhodes has already been booked for several wrestling events between now and the end of the year, making it even clearer that his wrestling ability was not the reason for his decision to leave the WWE.

Whilst the time may well have been right for the WWE superstar to part ways with the company, WWE should be a lot more appreciative in future of the talent they have in order to avoid any further departures by those who feel they are seen as underrated.
