Goldust recalls his first appearance on WWE TV

Goldust is certainly one of the most recognizable superstars of all time, having made his debut in WWE in October 1990 during an edition of Saturday Night's Main Event with his father Dusty. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Goldust recalled his first appearance: “The night we started that angle, we were in Toledo, Ohio, and DiBiase was buying all the front row seats, giving $100 bills for everyone to move away so he could take their seats.

Older wrestling fans will remember they had those old wooden folding chairs, not the metal ones, and DiBiase swung one at my head like a dart, like he was stabbing me. He hit me in the head and split me right open, which is what we call a ‘hard way’ in this business, and the moment was electric.

The crowd erupted, Dad came over to protect me, and the blood was rushing down my face." Between WWF/E and WCW, Goldust 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.

In WWF/E, he is a three-time Intercontinental Champion, nine-time Hardcore Champion, one-time World Tag Team Champion, and two-time WWE Tag Team Champion.
