Cody Rhodes Shares His Emotional Eulogy For His Father

My eulogy from today's service for "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes 1945-2015

— Stardust (@StardustWWE) June 18, 2015

Last week on June 11th, wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes passed away at the age of 69. Since then, the WWE has been quick to honor his legacy, while wrestlers from around the world have been discussing what he meant to them and their wrestling career. While we've heard from a variety of people close to the wrestling great, we've now heard from one of his kids, Cody Rhodes, who posted the eulogy he wrote for his father on Twitter. It's eloquently written and many thanks to Cody Rhodes for sharing this beautiful piece on his father with the wrestling world.

Here's a transcript of his eulogy, taken from Cody's Twitter page:


Not in a disparaging sense to the others. just for was only him. The love of her life.

“You only had one more silver-dollar. but you didn't let them catch you no.’

I said...

‘I'll sit here until you wake-up...‘

You were a figure of FAITH. You did not preach your religion, you lived your religion. And to describe my feelings not just about being your son, or your friend, or your partner. Hell if I'd only met you for five minutes...l'lI amend the Legendary New York Yankee Lou Gehrig and say; “today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth...for having stood in the company of you Dusty Rhodes’

Have an American Dream.
