Dustin Rhodes Provides Update On AEW Status
How long does Dustin Rhodes have left on his AEW contract?
AEW star Dustin Rhodes has provided an update on his current status with the company, noting that he has a 'little less than a year' remaining on his AEW contract.
Rhodes made the comments while appearing on the Sports Guys Talking Wrestling podcast to promote his Rhodes Wrestling Academy training school's next show (on November 13).
Dustin also mentioned that he had recently had 'work done' on his knee and that he was hoping to be back in the ring in two weeks.
Speaking about how he feels right now, the 53-year-old said:
"Well, I've had a lot of cleanings. I never had an ACL surgery so a lot of cleanings but this is 14 surgeries all together. I was feeling a little old because my knee, it was taking me a little longer to recuperate from it but now it's like, once it went over the hill, it's like, great. Now I got it, it's good to go. But I am getting older and they're getting younger and faster and I know my time is short so, I'm just trying, you know? I still have a year under contract or a little less than a year and I'm just gonna try to do the best I can and entertain as much as I can because I still love it, you know?
"And [I'm] still pretty passionate about it but it is a young man's game, as everybody finds out, as The Undertaker found out, as Bret Hart found out, Stone Cold found out. All the greats that end up getting out and you know, Jeff Jarrett just came aboard and he called himself 'The Last Outlaw' and I kind of have a little beef with him because of that because I consider myself — because I'm still working and still working at a high capacity. 'The Last Outlaw', like the last of my kind, from back in the day and that's like a badge of honor to me and he called himself that and I kind of got p*ssed, and I like Jeff".
Rhodes had previously hinted that he was contemplating retirement with a cryptic social media post.
His most recent match was a loss to then-Ring of Honor World Champion Claudio Castagnoli on the August 26 episode of Rampage.
