Dustin Rhodes himself has commented on the error saying, in a now-deleted tweet, that the spot embarrassed him and offering this person an opportunity to train with him and learn the proper way of throwing punches.
It's almost 2020, and I am embarrassed at what I just saw in the great business that I still protect to this day. Please learn how to punch. Or, better yet, come to my class that I hold weekly and I will teach you.— Dustin Rhodes (@dustinrhodes) December 21, 2019
Independent wrestling veteran, Arik Cannon, then took to Twitter to jokingly accept responsibility for this moment.
Dustin Would say after deleting the tweet that the real culprit did come forward and he thanked the anonymous person for doing so.
I deleted that tweet because he has come forward. Thanks. Work on your frickin punches. There are always going to be those out there that try and bring others down. When you see people exposing our business, call em out. ------— Dustin Rhodes (@dustinrhodes) December 21, 2019
