Backstage News On Dusty Rhodes/WWE, Hall Of Fame

PWInsider is reporting that last year Dusty Rhodes opted out of appearing at the Hall Of Fame because he knew that Hogan would overshadow everyone, and this year he thinks that both Hart and Guerrero would overshadow him.

Dusty Rhodes is in the process of finalizing a long-term deal with WWE and moving up in power. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Stephanie McMahon wanted to sign him to an exclusive deal, but Rhodes likes being able to work indy dates and do autograph signings. There is also talk of signing Rhodes to perform on TV in some way.
