Goldust reflects on trying new things with the character

Goldust has always been a character much loved by the WWE crowd, thanks above all to his unique style and his skills inside the ring. His enigmatic, flamboyant, [se]xually ambiguous "Goldust" character has remained popular in WWF/E since its debut in 1995.

Between WWF/E and WCW, Runnels has won 20 total championships. In WCW, he was a two-time United States Heavyweight Champion, a one-time Six-Man Tag Team Champion, and a two-time World Tag Team Champion. During a recent interview with Wrestling Inc, Goldust reflected on trying new things with the character: “We were at the Garden and I was working with Savio Vega.

Savio is very underrated, he got the Goldust character to where it needed to be, in my opinion. Savio pulled some stuff out of me that I did not want to do and we tried it in the Garden and the people just went nuts. That was the first time that I had done anything kind of [se]xual towards another man in the wrestling ring, and it got over and the people just blew the roof off.

At the end of that match – I wasn’t used to the suits yet, the singlet uni-suits I wore were very hot, I couldn’t breathe… I get to the back and I’m asking people to help me grab this suit."
