• WWF Veteran Might Not Retire This Year After All

In recent months, there were heavy rumors that Old School WWF Veteran Dustin Rhodes (fka Goldust) would most likely end his career by the end of 2023, which marks his 35th anniversary in professional wrestling.

In a recent interview with ‘Wrestling Perspective’, the former 3-time WWF Intercontinental Champion now suggested that this might not be his final year in the business after all.

Here’s what the son of ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes had to say, after he was asked about his eventual retirement:

“When you are 35 years in the business, and you’re working pretty steadily on a television basis for so long, your body takes a toll, and I’ve had a lot of surgeries.

My knees are getting bad, and it may be me saying ‘maybe enough’s enough’. But to answer you honestly? I don’t know.

Could I sign another contract at the end of this term here with Tony and go on with less matches, few and far between, some special, special things that come along down the pike? Yes.

Could I do it 365 days anymore? No, I couldn’t. But we don’t do that anymore, so it’s changed dramatically over the years.

It’s not like the older days in the WWF, where we’re on the road 60 days in a row, then you’re home for 3 and you’re back out for 30.

It was a crazy time schedule back then, and there’s a lot more time home now.

I still love the business, so it hasn’t left me yet, so I can’t really say ‘Hey man, this might be it’.”

Dustin had several stints in the World Wrestling Federation (1990-1991, 1995-1999, later WWE 2002-2003, 2005-2006 & 2009-2019), in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1991-1995 & 1999-2001) and even in Total Nonstop Action! (TNA, 2004-2005 & 2007-2008), before he signed with Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling in 2019.
