Dustin Rhodes recently announced his plans to retire after his current AEW deal comes to an end in July 2023.
Booker T recently spoke on the subject during his The Hall of Fame podcast, saying:
“He’s never going to retire.
“We’re never going to retire.
“It’s what we do, man.”
Rhodes has set an end date himself on his wrestling career, although with the caveat to “never say never.”
Booker T believes that Rhodes will return to the ring, stating:
“Goldy is going to be back in the middle of that ring somewhere, but on his own time.
“When he wants to do it, and I understand that, too, especially at this stage of the game.”
The WWE Hall of Famer, however, shared words of caution to the 53-year-old AEW star, concluding:
“He should hang em up, you know?
“Goldy’s been doing this [for] a long time
“He’s been around since the late ’80s.”
Dustin Rhodes made his debut in 1988 and signed with WCW in the same year.
His wrestling career had taken him all over the globe, including runs in All Japan Pro Wrestling.
He has performed for WCW and TNA, as well as having five separate runs in WWE.
He signed with AEW in 2019.
