Cody Rhodes’ rise to stardom is a testament to his perseverance and resilience. As the former Stardust, Rhodes struggled to find his footing in the ring, feeling trapped and frustrated as he watched others rise to prominence. He confided in an interview with Corey Graves on After The Bell that his experiences during that period left him feeling “dead inside.” The accumulation of pent-up emotions led to a heated confrontation with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, an incident that still resonates with Rhodes today.

Rhodes recounted the event, recalling how he hurled a Yoohoo glass bottle at Johnson’s face on a crew bus, his emotions raw and unbridled. He also acknowledged the difficulty of articulating his feelings to his wife, Brandi, who had married him while Rhodes was the Intercontinental Champion. The experience took a toll on his mental and physical well-being, ultimately leading him to bid farewell to the Stardust character.
