Ever since arriving in All Elite Wrestling, Dustin Rhodes has been on fire. From facing off against his brother to teaming with him once again and beyond, it’s been quite the career resurgence for the man formerly known as Goldust.
While many fans still enjoyed his tenure with WWE, even towards the end of his time there, it just feels like he’s being booked and used in a manner which suits him a little bit better.
Now, with the Inner Circle being in sight, he seems committed to taking them down – vaulting himself up to main event status in the process.
Some may moan and groan at the idea of Rhodes potentially even challenging Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship, and while known of us know whether or not that’s a realistic possibility, it certainly seems like that’s a direction we could be heading in.
Above all else Dustin is just an incredible competitor, and he is easily one of the biggest assets to All Elite Wrestling in the early stages of their existence.
Whenever he decides to hang up his boots he could easily go on to become a trainer, helping to bring through the next wave of AEW stars.
Nobody knows what the future is going to hold for AEW and whether or not the promotion will be a sustained success, but guys like Dustin are going to go along for the ride either way – and if you don’t see that as a positive, we can’t help you.
