Dustin Rhodes recalls his time as Goldust

Between WWF/E and WCW, Dustin Rhodes 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. In a recent interview with Jim Varsallone, Rhodes recalled his time as Goldust: “Probably the first couple of years of the Goldust character when Goldust was really hated.

Because we were really just stepping over the line with doing some crazy, outlandish things. And you know, it was not ready for the public yet, and the public was eating it up. And it was fun, it was easy once I found that niche of what to do and how to do things, it became very easy and it was just fun because it was hated, and I loved being a heel … but the early years of Goldust, the Booker T years of course, the R-Truth years, the Cody years.

Those were the things that kind of stick out in my mind of the fun times that I had. And the rest was just filler and a bunch of crap”.
