Dustin Rhodes has been through plenty of gimmicks in his life. One of them didn’t last very long at all, and that was 7. He rejected an offer this week that was easy to refuse.
Dustin Rhodes defeated X of the Dark Order this week on Dynamite. Then The Dark Order made an entrance. Evil Uno had the microphone, and he made a pitch to Dustin Rhodes.
Evil Uno offered Rhodes the name 7. Tony Schiavone immediately said that Dustin Rhodes doesn’t want that number. Rhodes turned down the Dark Order’s offer, and he left. Then Evil Uno said that Dustin will come back to them.
The name 7 is an obvious reference to Seven, a name that he briefly had in WCW. He broke character on-screen and created a memorable moment when he shot on the microphone. He later admitted to loving that gimmick.
