Where Is The Stardust Angle Suppose To Lead?
As seen Monday night on Raw, Cody Rhodes reemerged as Stardust, with face paint, a bodysuit, and mannerisms similar to those of Goldust. The future of this unique pairing will hinge on the audience’s reception to them.
This is according to Figure Four Weekly editor Bryan Alvarez, who revealed on the Bryan & Vinny & Craig Show (audio available at F4WOnline.com), that should the act get over with the audience, they will be challenging for the WWE Tag Team Championship at SummerSlam on Aug. 17. Now, if the act doesn’t get over to WWE’s liking, there will be a turn that leads to them wrestling each other at the summer show. There were creative plans to break them up earlier this year, but those plans were scrapped.
Despite a wealth of talent and commitment, Cody Rhodes has yet to break through into the main event for the biggest professional wrestling organization in the world. Given the verve with which he has thrown himself into past gimmicks like “Dashing” Cody Rhodes or the twisted villain he became when he thought he was “deformed,” there’s every reason to think that if anyone could make Goldust 2.0 work, it would be him.
