WWE Hall of Famer has discussed the possibility of TNT Champion and free agent Cody Rhodes reviving his old Stardust gimmick to be part of the 2022 Royal Rumble Match.
Booker also revealed his reaction to the news that Rhodes was a free agent on his Hall of Fame podcast. He said:
“I just thought it was another news site printing something that perhaps wasn’t true. Or was true in a certain aspect but, like you just said it might be a technicality or something like that. But the first thing I’m thinking, ‘Cody is not going to leave AEW, not right now.’
“I think I heard Cody talking about his injuries not too long ago, and of course, he doesn’t have a lot of years left in the business. But I would suspect Cody would have at least, three to five left if he wanted. Even if it was just him pushing himself to actually do it, I think he could pull that off.”
On the subject of Rhodes making a return to WWE for the Royal Rumble, Booker doesn’t think there is any chance Cody would want to revive Stardust. Some fans have speculated this is something that could happen.
“Let me tell you something, that’s wishful thinking, that’s not going to happen. That’s not going to happen in a million years. Let’s not get people hyped up. I just don’t see it happening, I don’t see any AEW activity in the Royal Rumble or anything like that.
“There again, I could be wrong. But I just don’t think something like that is going to happen at this time. AEW is out definitely on their own wing right now doing their own thing. I just think something like that would muddy the waters like crazy. The fans would lose their minds more than anything.”
