Cody Rhodes says that his hero died 36 years before Dusty on the same day. John Wayne said there are some things you cannot run from. We cannot run from that, but we can remember and we can respect. A very very wise individual once said that Dusty Rhodes was the ‘oak of NXT’. Cody says he referred to him as dad. For over four decades, you allowed him to beam into your homes. His creations to take hold in your heart. You made him part of your family.

Tonight, we are all Rhodes.

Dusty’s music plays in the arena.
