Dustin Rhodes analyzes the development of the Goldust character

On April 20, 2019, it was revealed on "Road to Double or Nothing" that Dustin Rhodes would face his real life half-brother, Cody, at All Elite Wrestling (AEW)'s Double or Nothing pay-per-view. At the event on May 25, Runnels, under his previous gimmick as "The Natural", failed to win.

Post-match, the brothers embraced after the announcement they would reunite to face The Young Bucks at the Fight for the Fallen event on July 13. Speaking on Talk is Jericho, the former WWE superstar analyzed the development of the Goldust character: “So I went up there anyway and had the meeting, and set down with the music.

We came up with the look. I really was — I loved the paint. And he wanted more of like an Adrian Street kind of makeup on the face. And I said, ‘Man, I really would like to do paint.’ Because I’ve always admired Sting’s makeup and his paint, and the way he did things.

And Muta, and kabuki, and I loved that. So we agreed to it, so we got this look, they made the suit. I flew back up again. Everybody is sitting around Vince’s big round table, man." Between WWF/E and WCW, Goldust has won 23 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. Runnels has also appeared in the second most Royal Rumble matches, at 13.
