• Goldust Explains How Social Media Has Destroyed Pro-Wrestling

During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, Old School WWF Veteran and current AEW Superstar Goldust (Dustin Rhodes) talked about Social Media destroying Pro-Wrestling.

Below is what Rhodes said:

“If you just take the social media away from the wrestling to where they can’t comment on the wrestling I think we’d be a lot further along than where it is right now.

Social media has destroyed what we do, what we try to do out there. We’ve killed the storylines, they’ve killed the kayfabe, now on TV they focus on three, four guys at the most and it always starts with a promo in the ring to set up the match at the end of the show and everything else is fill-in.”
