Dustin Rhodes Reveals He Needs Double Knee Replacement Surgery
Dustin Rhodes needs to fix his knees
Dustin Rhodes has admitted that his full-time in career may be drawing to a close, revealing that he needs double knee replacement surgery.
A veteran with over 35 years of experience, Rhodes is currently signed to AEW as a performer and coach, and revealed on Talk is Jericho just how much of a toll wrestling has taken on his body:
"I look at Ric Flair, his supposed last match, I don't wanna do that," Rhodes told Chris Jericho. "So as long as I can get out of the business and still walk. Because I do need a couple of knee replacements, but that's fine, I'll get the knee replacements. I'll be fine. I'll be able to walk around. But I just remember getting in the business and seeing a couple of the old timers on walkers and in wheelchairs. I'm like, 'I don't wanna get to that point.'"
‘The Natural’ has only wrestled five matches all year, with his last bout coming against then-ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli in August.
