On a recent edition of the “Sports Guys Talking Wrestling” podcast, AEW veteran Dustin Rhodes lavished praise on Toni Storm’s “Timeless” gimmick, noting that the Marilyn Monroe-inspired act reminds him of his Goldust character.
Rhodes said, “With the things they’re doing with Toni Storm right now, they’re amazing because they’re so entertaining. Whether people think it or not, we are entertainment, but we are pro wrestling … To do both of those at the same time, like Toni Storm is doing with her character, it just blows me out of the water. I talk to her all the time and tell her she reminds me of my old days of Goldust, and just the things that she does, and her mannerisms, and the film, and the black and white.”
Storm will defend the AEW Women’s World Championship against Deonna Purrazzo at next month’s AEW Revolution 2024 pay-per-view event.
