“Moms Are Special”: Wrestling World Unite to Pray for WWE Legend’s Mother Amid Her Debilitating Health

Published 12/24/2022, 12:15 PM EST

The life of a wrestler looks amazing on paper. Traveling all over the globe and competing with the best in the world, wrestlers who have made it to WWE or AEW have the best lives. But this is only great on paper because one of the biggest drawbacks of this job is not being able to spend time with family. Many wrestlers never see their families for the longest time which puts pressure on them.

There is nothing in the world more amazing than a parent’s love and wrestlers sacrifice it to put on great performances. In contrast, wrestlers’ families have to see their loved ones put their lives on the line every single week. Not only can they do nothing for their loved ones but grin and bear it while sitting in front of the TV or in the audience.

In such a life, being away from family during a difficult time is a gruesome thing. Especially for someone like Dustin Rhodes, the man behind Goldust in WWE, who has been in the industry since the ’80s. Debuting alongside his father, the man has seen Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, and Steve Austin walk into the ring. While he has had a remarkable career, he sacrificed family time with his mother and is making up for it now.

Fans and wrestlers come together to pray for this WWE legend’s mother

Rhodes approached the wrestling world back in February to pray for his mother, who had been hospitalized. But since then he didn’t update anyone on her health until a few days ago when he asked for people to pray for her again. We speculated that her health was worsening but it looks from the recent photo that he posted on Twitter, that things might be getting better.
