Dustin Rhodes: “I know my time is short”

Nov 10, 2022 - by James Walsh

In October, Dustin Rhodes commented on his future in wrestling and hinted at retirement. During an appearance on the Sports Guys Talk Wrestling podcast, Rhodes provided a health update…

“Knee is great. I’m feeling good. I’m ready to go back. I’ll be back very very soon, probably two weeks. Right now, I feel good. I am getting older and that kind of weighs on my mind a little bit.”

“A lot of cleanings, I’ve never had an ACL surgery. This is 14 surgeries altogether. I was just feeling old because my knee is taking a little longer to recuperate. Now I’ve got it, it’s good to go. I’m getting older, they’re getting younger and faster. I know my time is short. I still have a year under contract, a little less than a year, and I’m gonna try to do the best I can and entertain as much as I can because I still love it and am pretty passionate about it, but it is a young man’s game, as everyone finds out.”
