Goldust refutes rumours about his WWE exit

After speculations had ignited about Goldust aka Dustin Rhodes leaving the WWE following the expiration of his contract, the wrestler calmed the waters down via a tweet. On 29th March, Goldust tweeted, "I am still under contract with the @wwe, and everything that is being said online is just talk, and complete bulls--t.

This is exactly why I hate smart marks!" Incidentally, what had added to the speculations about him leaving the WWE was the fact that he had changed his name on Twitter to his given name of Dustin Rhodes from his ring name of Goldust.

He also changed the description of his bio, removing all previous mentions of the promotion and the company. According to a report published in Wrestling Inc., Rhodes was supposed to become a free agent from May 2019, after the end of the 90-day clause of the WWE which prevents wrestlers leaving the promotion from competing elsewhere, in other promotions.

The 49-year-old competed in the ring for WWE in 2018. He was a part of WrestleMania 34's Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal's fifth edition and the Greatest Royal Rumble. Later, he underwent surgeries in his knees the same year.

Meanwhile, the rumours about him quitting the WWE also gained momentum after it was announced that his half-brother and fellow wrestler Cody Rhodes would be fighting a mystery opponent in the Double or Nothing event, as a part of the new All Elite Wrestling (AEW) promotion.
