Dustin Rhodes On Being AEW’s Promo Coach, What To Accomplish

Dustin Rhodes (A.K.A Goldust in WWE), who is Cody Rhodes’ brother and Dusty Rhodes’ son, has been in the wrestling industry for over 30 years. He has competed in a number of major wrestling companies, where he has amassed a significant amount of success and won multiple championship titles.

Most recently, Dustin Rhodes has joined All Elite Wrestling, where he faced his brother in a Singles Match as well as teamed up with his brother to take on The Young Bucks. Aside from being a competitor in All Elite Wrestling, Dustin Rhodes also provides a little bit of help backstage by coaching the younger talents in cutting promos.

Dustin Rhodes was recently interviewed by Bleacher Report on a number of topics including what help he provides the younger talents in cutting promos.

This is what Dustin Rhodes said:

“I’ve been hired as a promo coach, and I want to help teach them how to talk.” “You don’t have to take this gigantic paragraph of text and memorize that s–t word for word, because it’s going to come off bland and not true to your character.

“We’ll work out who the character is and figure out which way they think they should go, which way the company wants them to go, and find a happy medium. I can teach them to cut promos where they don’t need to be on a script constantly. We can hit some bullet points and make it their own. The key is stepping out of your comfort zone and taking a chance. Take a chance on making something cool.”

Dustin Rhodes then talked about the younger talents never having been on TV and never really cutting promos in the past. Dustin Rhodes talked about what he must do in order to develop their skills and their characters as well as come up with the best promos.

This is what Dustin Rhodes said:

“Some of these wrestlers have never really done promos, and a lot of them have never done TV. They are nervous about it, and those are the ones I’m going to push the most.” “Let’s see it. Let’s hear it. With some oomph and conviction. Give me what my dad used to give us: charisma. I want to see your character. That’s what I’ll do my best to teach.”

Dustin Rhodes then talked about also helping the younger talents in storytelling as well as being able to sell those stories and tell those stories effectively.

This is what Dustin Rhodes said:

“We will have time to tell stories and not be stuck trying to do a four-minute television match. That’s exciting to me, and I think I can help them learn how to be a babyface, how to be a heel, how to sell, how to tell a story. Put a big move over here instead of where they want to put it—and trust me on these things and trust that it will work.”
