Cody On Fan Saying WWE Should Give Him Great American Bash

A fan recently took to Twitter and said that AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes and his brother Dustin Rhodes should have been given the rights to use “the Great American Bash” name, which was made popular and created by WWE Hall of Famer and Cody and Dustin’s father, Dusty Rhodes. Cody Rhodes took to his Twitter to respond to the fan and said it all comes down to business and WWE has the rights to several of Dusty’s greatest creations, but he hopes that WWE does them justice. Cody Rhodes also said he will never be bitter as long as his and his father’s legacy is being honored.

This is what Cody Rhodes said:

“Business is business. They have the rights to many of Dusty’s greatest creations. My hope is that they do them justice and I will never be bitter about his legacy being honored and a whole new generation seeing he was a genius w/lasting concepts.”

In 1985, the first-ever Great American Bash Event was created by WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, with the show taking place on July 6th, 1985 from the American Legion Memorial Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. The name was then used by WCW until 2000, and would then be used by the WWE from 2004-2009, then again in 2012. WWE would then bring the name back in 2020 for the NXT brand and the WWE has been using the name since. Speaking of the Great American Bash, last night’s episode of WWE NXT TV was the Great American Bash special.
