► Cody Rhodes, WWE, 2015
“I feel like all of my heroes, whether in wrestling or in entertainment, had to make decisions that no one else would make. I had to do it myself. Stardust was supposed to end, I was supposed to be Cody Rhodes, but not fast enough. All the advice I was getting: ‘Go talk to so-and-so,’ ‘Go talk to so-and-so,’ and I’m like, ‘Okay… I don’t feel very welcome.’
“I requested a termination of my contract, I put out a statement on social media, someone in talent relations said, ‘See you next week!’ Because I had taken it out on them and told them, ‘No, we won’t.’ Then I turned that thing off, it was an incredibly unprofessional way of doing it i broke ties i had to go i had to go.
“I didn’t even sign my release papers. I didn’t care, I worked for you [WWE] for 10 wonderful and beautiful years, I met my wife here, I had this great streak with my brother here, I was able to work with my heroes in the business and it can end this way for me. So, I moved on… no hard feelings, It was the best thing I could have done at the time.
«There was no way out of this [señala la foto de Stardust]I was so embarrassed. I’ve talked about the good parts of Stardust and I mean it. It’s the fact that I can’t bring myself to be Cody Rhodes and tell them I’m also Stardust. It’s about the sad cloud but there was no other way out than nuclear«.
