Goldust is one of those characters that could only come from the wacky, wonderful world of professional wrestling. Bonkers on paper, the gimmick has exceeded all expectations and has created a legacy like no other in the business.
First introduced in 1995, The Bizarre One has enjoyed no fewer than five separate stints in WWE and is currently still active on the RAW brand. Such longevity is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the man behind the paint: Dustin Runnels.
Walking the jumbled tight ropes of family legacy, controversy, homophobia, and shifting eras, Goldust has become an icon of WWE. With a visual style all his own and in-ring credentials that often get overlooked, Goldust has an impressive back catalogue of matches that simply deserve more attention.
So, grab that pot of grease paint, zip up your vinyl onesie (don’t act like you don’t have one), and let’s make sure you that you never forget the name…Goldust.
