Cody Rhodes shares his emotional open letter to late Dusty Rhodes with the fans

WWE superstar Cody Rhodes posted an open letter on his wife’s blog, Brandi’s blog, which has been written in memory of his deceased father Dusty Rhodes. As we already know, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes passed away last month after he fell at his residence and was rushed to the hospital where he was announced dead. A lot of tributes and comments flowed in after the sad news as everyone showed their respect towards the WWE Hall of Famer.

Now Cody has took his thoughts to social media. Here is an excerpt from the emotional post below:

"So what do you want me to do now?? The head of the table is empty. I am not ready to let the sun go down on you. My compass just spinning madly.

A few days after we lost you, I was tasked with the unfortunate duty of going through your cellphone to find various numbers, so that we could invite them to the service. And there it was…

Your lock-screen.

It was a picture.
It was Stardust in a heated stare-down with The CW'S most valuable player Stephen "The Green Arrow" Amell.

"…finish what you start Kid…"

And thats why I sent you know who Monday. And I'm sure when he drew that first line of paint down his face, his throat rised and his eyes might of watered a bit. Leave it all out in the ring, my gift to you. And I know the man who secretly wanted to pit himself against Joe Frazier after Starrcade 84' would get a real kick out of this.

So Dad, I hope you like what happens next, and…I hope the fans do too. Like Paul told you, they're not marks…they're customers. You said about them in 1978(after you took those rose-tinted shades off to let them know you were serious…I know you) "making you happy, makes my dreams fulfilled"

When I "finish"…who knows?? Maybe Aubrey Sitterson and I will actually write a comic or two that people enjoy and feel something from. Maybe I will finally take your advice and "head West young man…" and get that manager you wanted me to get. Or maybe I will put a pair of wrestling boots and trunks in a bag(I promise to carry it on the plane, 1st rule) and ride the roads and pretend to be a cowboy like you.

That Stardust suit might end up in the closet next to that black&gold Midnight Rider mask(which you never told me why its even there to begin with…wait…you…no you weren't him…were you??)

I think you told me it was an Apache or Cherokee custom, that giving a knife was giving "the bonds of friendship" and giving it back was to cut them. So I have given a few from your collection to those two studs you watched your last Mania' with, your booking friend from NXT."
