Interesting. Both men still trying to break out of their fathers casting shadows that loom over their head like a black cloud. It is a blessing, but a curse at the same time, as they posses the genetically gifted ability that has been passed down to them, but its a shame they'll always be known as "His Kid".

I couldn't say the same about Goldust.  He got out of Dusty Rhodes' shadow.

I agree to some what of a degree. When he debut as Dustin Runnels in the early 90's in WCW, I thought he'd be just a chip of the block in terms of gimmick as he represented the 'working man, grandson of a plumber, typical American'. 

However, when he joined the WWF, he really spilt away from the Rhodes family as he became this bizarre and unique character that no body had ever seen before. To me, he will always be remembered as 'The Golden One' and not the son Dusty Rhodes, because unlike when I watch Cody wrestle, I can often forget that he is the off spring of the American Dream.
