Shane Douglas On If He Thinks Cody Rhodes Will Appear At Starcade

– Episode #16 Of The Triple Threat Podcast featured “The Franchise” Shane Douglas and The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling discussing a wide variety of topics, check out the highlight below:

On WWE bringing back Code Rhodes for an appearance at Starrcade:

“I’d be shocked if Cody does appear and not because I’m sure he loves his brother Dustin dearly but for Cody to go back it seems to me from what I have read publicly, I have not spoken privately to him about it but it seems like he left on pretty terse terms with WWE. Which seems to be a revolving thing doesn’t it? People that leave seem to have a pretty disgruntled view of the company. I don’t see in my personal opinion where if I was an NWA fan (and I am) but if I am a fan outside of the business I wouldn’t spend one dollar on a WWE Starrcade event because Vince McMahon had nothing to do with the inception, build-up, execution or duration of Starrcade. Those were exclusively an NWA product under the Crocketts and with Dusty Rhodes and it was the Dusty Rhodes brainchild that started it. I just don’t see where it would be like (Darren) Aronofsky the guy who did The Wrestler, it would be like him suddenly saying he can write a Star Wars movie which he has never had anything to do with because that is a (Disney) Lucas Property and I just don’t see the connection from Vince McMahon to Starrcade. Vince has enough entities that he is making money on and off of that he did create and I don’t see where he has the right to crossover. I don’t care that he bought the name from the WCW library or whatever, he had nothing to do with Starrcade and the purest “mark” in me would never spend a dime to support that.”
