“You know, people, I think, sometimes mistakenly think that Dusty just named Starrcade and Great American Bash, and it’s well beyond naming them. It’s a matter of booking them, of marketing them, of the creation. My dad always told me that Starrcade was for my sister and that Great American Bash was for me. Obviously, at the time that he came up with these events, I’m not sure if that was actually the case, but that’s what he told me, and that’s why it’s very special, both events, to me and my sister. I’m not going to get angry because it still brings up his name in a positive way. The marketing of the event reminds me a lot of what Disney currently does. If you go to Disney World, they still sell Haunted Mansion shirts and they’re all done retro-style. They market nostalgia.”
WWE didn’t do one of the best job with Starrcade as they put the identify on a glorified home present. Now Cody Rhodes simply needs that WWE will do one thing particular with the Great American Bash identify and placed on one thing particular within the course of.
“If you run a sizzle with Sting and Dusty Rhodes and Hulk Hogan, none of those guys are going to be there. I’m not really upset about it. I know my sister really just thought it was so strange that it was announced willy nilly, last-minute, in the strangest of ways, I would hope that they do something special with it,” he stated. “I think our show is better. I think it will be better in execution, but I hope that they do something special with it, because I hated what Michael Hayes did with Starrcade. He took a creation of my dad’s and he made it a live event because they weren’t selling any tickets in North Carolina and he wanted to save his job. That was disappointing to me, in terms of that was the premier event of World Championship Wrestling and the NWA, and you did what you did with it. And the same, I hope, is not what happens with Great American Bash. I’m not upset at anything that brings my dad’s name in a positive light. Is it a weird feeling? For sure, but I’ve also been in a tag match with my brother competing, ratings-wise, against the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. One guy who I never mind competing with is my own dad. I’ll never mind that, and The Great American Bash, it is what it is. And I would hope that they do something positive with it. That’s really…the only outlook I have on it, unless I had like three or four bourbons and then I would have an absolutely different outlook on it. But I like that they bring his name up in a charming and loving way, I just hope it’s not another Starrcade situation.”
