Cody Rhodes recently responded to a Tweet about WWE having him portray the failed Stardust gimmick for two years. Cody Rhodes said he actually blames himself for sticking with that character for so long.
Here’s what he had to say:
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
