Cody Rhodes will be presenting the winners of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic with a trophy he helped design … but won’t be dressed as Stardust — he’ll be making a rare makeup-free appearance.

Rhodes told Justin LaBar he’ll be at NXT TakeOver: Respect next month to witness the tournament finals out of character — making this his first WWE showing without wearing face-paint since Dusty passed away in June.

Cody says it’s still difficult for him to be near a ring without thinking of his dad — but he believes the tournament is a great way to honor Dusty’s legacy.

Cody Rhodes says his brother Goldust will more than likely also be on hand for the event.
