Eden calls out fans for demanding Stardust use Dusty Rhodes' death 'as a stepping stone'

Stardust made his return to television on Raw last night in Atlanta after taking a month off to grieve the passing of his father, the great Dusty Rhodes. They did not acknowledge anything about his personal life within the context of the show and he continued working his heel character during his match with Neville.

Apparently, some fans are really upset about this. Eden, his wife, is even more upset that fans would be upset about such a thing and she took to her blog to call them out for it.

An excerpt:

This blog will put some people off. I do not apologize. Chances are if it does you are the kind of person I am speaking of. Last night my husband returned to RAW to finish what he started and some "fans" we're peeved with him ANGRY because they wanted something else. They wanted him to use what happened to his father as a "stepping stone". Not for Cody, but for themselves. Maybe that's to feel better about everything or maybe they are just that selfish. But to publicly crap on the most courageous thing someone in this position could do which was pick up and carry on and do it brilliantly, shame on you.

For people who say "he needed to do that for Dusty"...hold on there happy pants, you never knew Dusty. You never sat in his living room or the PC and heard him PRAISE his work. All of it. And appreciate the way Cody took everything and anything and turned it into brilliance, Summer plans that he came up with himself...How he NEVER QUITS AT ANYTHING. And I bet you never saw the screen saver on his phone...that I won't share with you. He admired these things about Cody how all of his fans should. Instead some complain and moan and complain and tweet and say "I'm just so upset because I am his number one fan". Newsflash...putting "Rhodes" somewhere in your Twitter handle does not a fan make. Being there, especially in a time like this, without ulterior motives is what makes the best fans. And we have PLENTY and their voices are heard and we appreciate you.

The full blog is well worth the read. Find it here.
