Dustin Rhodes has experienced a career resurgence since joining AEW a couple of years ago. Although he always had potential, it was he was underutilized by WWE. However, at AEW, Dustin Rhodes was able to portray a more serious character. Dustin Rhodes played a prominent backstage as well by helping arrange matches. Now, it appears his time in the ring could be wrapping up.
Sadly, Dustin Rhodes recently took to Twitter send a message to his fans that indicates that he is thinking about retiring. Although he didn’t come right out and say he was retiring, his tweet seemed to suggest that he was thinking about calling it quits on his career. Dustin Rhodes also teased retirement in the build-up to that match against his brother Cody Rhodes at Double or Nothing 2019.
“Man, old age has caught up to me guys. As much as I push myself beyond my limits, I can honestly say, I am doing some heavy thinking about the next step. We all think we can go forever with new batteries, but TIME comes for all of us. Kinda scared tbh. #KeepSteppin“
Although, Dustin Rhodes was portrayed prominently at the start of his AEW run, he has only wrestled a handful of matches this year. The 53-year-old wrestled his last match for the promotion on the August 24th edition of Rampage against Claudio Castagnolli.
