Dustin Rhodes discusses his bloody affair with Cody.
One of the highlights at All Elite Wrestling's Double or Nothing was the brother vs. brother affair between Dustin and Cody Rhodes. The bout, which already had a ton of emotion and heat behind it, was kicked up to another level when Dustin began gushing blood from the head early on in the contest.
Speaking to Chris Jericho on Talk is Jericho, Dustin discussed getting busted open in the bout and his philosophy on blood.
"I know a lot of people were worried. I was worried. You do it and you see it start streaming out and I was like, 'Oh no. I went a little bit too deep.' 10 minutes go by and I'm starting to worry because the whole ring is red, it's all in my eyes, I'm trying to wipe it out but it keeps shooting out to my heartbeat. It gets scary. After 15 minutes, I knew I'd be okay. You saw the fans faces. They were horrified, but into it. It was incredible," said Dustin.
"I've always been told, 'red on the head is green in the pocket.' I believe that to be true to an extent, when it's used sparingly. It was just right [At Double or Nothing]. I'm still on a huge high from this match. We stole the show from the legendary Chris Jericho," he joked.
Following the match, which was won by Cody, Dustin and his brother embraced for a bloody hug that drew one of the biggest reactions on the night.
Dustin will return to the ring at AEW Fight for the Fallen when he teams with Cody to take on The Young Bucks.
