The company announced today that the 50-year-old, 31-year ring veteran had signed a multi-year extension to stick around with the promotion in several important roles.
Under the terms of this deal, Rhodes will continue on inside the ring as an active wrestler, and will also work on AEW's coaching staff. His duties for the latter, include working as a promo coach and as a match producer.
AEW President and CEO Tony Khan said in a statement, in part, "Dustin and I had agreed weeks ago after Fight For The Fallen that we both wanted him to stay with All Elite Wrestling. He's already done so much for us, and I'm thrilled that it's official now that Dustin will be on our team going forward, both backstage and in the ring!"
Rhodes himself tweeted on the matter Thursday, stating, "Blessed. Y'all stick around! This ride is gonna be sick! Your #FinalReckoning has arrived!!! Lets do this."
