Life-size bronze statue of Dusty Rhodes unveiled at Axxess

WWE unveiled the bronze life-size statue of Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes at Axxess this evening, similar to what they did last year for the Ultimate Warrior.

Dustin Rhodes, Cody Rhodes, and Eden  Styles were present for the unveiling of the statue which was done in front of the NXT roster, a roster which Dusty often described as his kids.

“I looked to him as a mentor and an inspiration and a creative force behind the scenes. I cannot put into words how much he meant to me and how much he meant to this industry,” said Triple H who hosted the unveiling.

Dustin, who portrays the character of Goldust, said that it was a tough year for their family and thanked the fans for their support. “Right now, I can guarantee you Dad is in Heaven getting funky like a monkey with the angels, looking down, very proud of all this,” he said.
