Dustin Rhodes was recently interviewed by “Sports Guys Talk Wrestling”. During the interview, he discussed his new role as promo coach for AEW. Here’s what he had to say:
There was talks on this last run that I had with the Goldust character that I would transition after my father’s passing to take over where he left off and they seemed to be on board with that. I was looking forward to it and then they chose somebody else and so it didn’t happen.
I’m excited about the talent aspect of it—me performing—but I am really excited about teaching these young kids how to handle a camera in their face and to bring out some of their character and really express it in ways that they can, they just have to step out of that comfort zone a little bit and experiment with things and we see what works and what doesn’t. I need to see what they do before I even put my hands on them. I need to see their characters I have to learn their characters and what they bring to the table.
I think, I really see right now some really good stuff I can do with Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy. Leva Bates, I think The Librarian gimmick I really like a lot and I believe has some legs if you can do some cool stuff with it. Until I get behind the scenes and kind of know how they’re running the ship, basically, then I’ll know a little better, but I can’t wait. I’m really excited that they named me their promo coach and that’s very cool.
