The Road Dogg claims Dusty Rhodes was livid after Cody Rhodes performed a moonsault from the top of the cage during a tag match in 2014.
During the latest edition of his Oh… You Didn’t Know? podcast, The Road Dogg went into detail explaining why the late “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes was furious over his son, Cody Rhodes, performing a diving moonsault from the top of the steel cage during a tag match featuring Cody and Goldust (Dustin Rhodes) vs. The New Age Outlaws on an episode of RAW from February 3rd, 2014.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On the Moonsault spot in the match with Cody Rhodes and Dusty Rhodes’ reaction: “I told him [Cody Rhodes] I’m not going to catch you in a 69, I’m not going to catch you perfectly. He said all ‘I need you to do is stick your arm out there,’ and I said I’ll do that. They cut to a different camera, it looked great but Dusty was pissed. When I went to NXT not long after that, he apologized to me. That’s the truth, Dusty said, ‘Hey man, that’s my baby boy,’ I said, ‘Dusty, you don’t have to apologize to me, I totally understand.’ That’s what it is, I had no problem with Dusty wanting to protect his child and being interested in his child’s safety.”
On how Terry Funk dealt with ring name changes for his career: “For me, it was Terry Funk. They could’ve called him [anything] and I wouldn’t have cared, it’s Terry Funk. It’s the same with today’s deal, ‘they changed his name, they changed so and so’s name,’ it’s the same dude, it’s the same guy. If you like Terry Funk, you like Chainsaw Charlie, get over it. I’ve always felt that way and I know I’m alone when a lot of people say it means everything, they changed his name. Well in six months, he’s Chainsaw Charlie, nobody cares.”
On the prep work for the dumpster being thrown off the stage on Raw in February 1998: “Guess who got in that thing and took that ride first? Vince McMahon. He’s done that so many times, the zipline with Shawn Michaels, jumping off of stuff onto a crash pad. He’s done that so many times to show I’m not asking you to do something that I wouldn’t do myself. You can think what you want to about him but he’s a man’s man, and he’s an interesting man.”
