It Came From YouTube: Goldust no more (for a little while, anyway).

15 Submitted by on Mon, 17 February 2014, 02:55

Dustin Rhodes burns his Goldust outfit because he’s sick of being Goldust (or “The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust”, or whatever).

So, he starts to talk like a preacher- rambling on and on about how “he” is coming back soon.

Who is “he”?

Well, it turned out “he” was Goldust when Dustin became Goldust again a few weeks later because nobody particularly cared about Dustin Rhodes being himself.

Which meant that this entire segment was a completely pointless and stupid swerve.

    Anyone else notice this shameful heckling around 2:18?
    Dustin: “And why?”
    Homophobe: “BECAUSE YOU’RE A F****T! YOU’RE A F****T, RHODES!”

    All of the attempts at “fixing” Goldust were terrible.

    It’s amazing to see how much effort he puts into every match these days, well into his 40′s, when during what’s supposed to be the peak of his physical career, he was mostly out of shape and stopped giving a crap in the ring.

    Yeah it’s funny what happens when you get older and you realize you just don’t get those years back you pissed away. Another great example of the uncanny smelling ability by an announcer as JR could smell gas from nearly a football field away from (pause and pffffffttttttt sound) Dustin.

    As a kid I thought this was the greatest thing ever

  7. Alexandru says:

    Yeah I give Dustin credit for what he has done for his age, but yeah he definitely wasted some of his prime years by being lazy and out of shape. And yeah Dustin being “himself” sucked and was flat-out boring he is definitely a guy who needs a gimmick, as “being yourself” doesn’t always work/mean shit.

    I’m surprised that TAFKA Goldust was never inducted. Pillman’s unfortunate and tragic death meant the Marlena heel angle couldn’t happen but, good grief, they really fucked up Dustin after that.

    What year was this? 1998?

    I have a feeling that in an alternate universe, this actually went somewhere pretty interesting. Too bad it’s THIS universe, and he just ended up going back to Goldust because… Uh… Only the power of Goldust could beat Val Venis?
