There are a number of wrestlers in AEW who have been there since day one, and one of them happens to be none other than Dustin Rhodes. However, Rhodes recently announced that his career is winding down and next year will be his last year as an active competitor.
The former WWE Intercontinental Champion recently discussed his future on Busted Open Radio and he revealed that his contract with AEW will expire in July of 2023.
“I made the decision that ‘Hey man, at the end of July, my contract is up. And I’m going to be done with the in ring, or at least tone it way, way down,'” Rhodes said. “I don’t know if that’s going to be it, because when we say we’re retiring, we always come back. And we never say never. But that’s what I’m looking for, an end date for my in-ring wrestling career.”
“I want to get out while I can still walk, but still teach the kids, still coach hopefully, if I’m allowed to do that, and occasionally make an onscreen appearance. I just don’t want to embarrass myself is the main thing.”
Stay tuned for more updates on Dustin Rhodes as they become available.
