Dustin Rhodes is considered a proper veteran in professional wrestling, after wrestling in the business for many decades now. Rhodes has seen the rise and fall of many companies and continues to push on no matter what. That being said, an argument has been made for him to get Hall of Fame induction from none other than The Undertaker himself.

Dustin Rhodes made his pro wrestling debut on September 13th 1988 for the Tampa-based Championship Wrestling From Florida promotion. He eventually went to WWE and came to be known as Goldust, breaking barriers and pushing the envelope in many ways.

He is well respected for good reason, especially after all of his contributions to the business as Goldust. While speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast, The Undertaker made the case for Dustin Rhodes getting inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Absolutely. 100%. This is a semantics thing at this point. I would imagine at some point, down the road. I think his resume is Hall of Fame worthy. Obviously, we know the one stickler right now and I think at some point that goes away. Then I couldn’t see too much time probably going by that he wouldn’t be induced.

He embraced that character. He made it his own. A lot of people talk about me and my character and making it my own but he did that with Goldust. Dustin comes from that traditional wrestling style too with his dad Dusty. But to go so far in another direction than Dusty or what Dustin had done up to that point. That’s a big roll of the dice.”

We will have to wait and see whether The Natural will end up getting inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame somewhere down the line. After all, many fans feel that Dustin Rhodes more than deserves it.
