It was previously reported that pro wrestling legend and veteran and one of the top stars in All Elite Wrestling Dustin Rhodes was featured in a recent edition of “Road To,” where he told his brother, Cody Rhodes, as well as the fans all over the world that if he can’t beat his upcoming TNT Championship Tournament opponent, Kip Sabian, he is going to retire.
A number of AEW Stars including Chris Jericho, MJF, Kip Sabian and Taz recently commented on Dustin Rhodes telling everyone that if he can’t beat Kip Sabian, then he will retire.
This is what Chris Jericho said:
“When you talk about Dustin Rhodes, you talk about one of the greatest of all-time.” “One of the best to lace up his boots in the sport of professional wrestling. He’s got it all: longevity, durability, creativity, athleticism, charismatic, character, psychology. He’s one of the best. I’m a fan — even bought the t-shirt. But when a man like Dustin Rhodes has been doing it for as long as he has says, ‘If I don’t win a match, I’m going to retire.’ When a man with the experience of Dustin Rhodes says, ‘If I don’t win, you’ll never see me again,’ that tells me there’s doubt.”
“And when you lose that confidence in this business — you’re done. So the fact that Dustin Rhodes has a doubt, just a kernel, of a doubt that he won’t beat Kip Sabian. It tells me that he already lost. So, therefore, you’re going to see the last match in the storied career of Dustin Rhodes. You had a great career, my friend, congratulations, but this week on Dynamite. It’s done.”
This is what MJF said:
“Thank god. Good riddance.”
This is what Kip Sabian said:
“Let’s be honest, @dustinrhodes is currently in his prime.” “There’s no taking that away. I’m yet to enter mine. The @AEWrestling TNT Championship is the beginning of that. Fear the man with nothing to lose, and everything to gain…See you Wednesday. As you were, #Superbad”
This is what Taz said:
“I have to weigh on this, I know @dustinrhodes a long time.” “I have had the opportunity to share locker rooms/rings with him for years. I truly feel he’s at his best NOW. His cardio, lean muscle mass along with a clear mind…hoping he doesn’t ride off into the sunset just yet.”
