On the latest edition of Grilling JR, Conrad Thompson and Jim Ross discussed Dustin Rhodes, and a number of other topics.
During the discussion about Rhodes, JR shared his thoughts on Dustin’s Goldust character. Ross explained why the gimmick best suited the current AEW talent, telling listeners:
“He’s 50 now for god sakes and he’s better than 98% of the people working on TV every week,” Ross said. “I think he had his best days as Goldust. He owned that character and made it his. Everything else was in his dad’s image. I saw more creative happiness in Dustin than when he was Goldust, refining and getting that character together then any other time.”
