Goldust Hints At Retirement

Is the curtain closing on Goldie's career?

Goldust told the Sports Guys Talking Wrestling show that he's "at the end of his career".

In a rather poignant interview, the 30-year veteran spoke candidly about all his experiences, and admitted that he wouldn't be able to hang with younger talent for too much longer. Throughout the chat, his tone wasn't defeatist; Goldust didn't put himself down, but instead put the current WWE roster over by saying they were telling good stories and working great matches.

His comments showed some self-awareness when it came to the Goldust character too.

"I've wrestled just about everybody there is to wrestle, done just about every character reincarnation that I can come up with," he said. "What's next? I'm at the end of my career here and about to be 50 in April. What else is there to do? I don't know. My body's getting older, they're getting younger and faster".

Goldust made his in-ring debut back in 1988, and he's been playing that gimmick (on and off) since 1995. When he hangs up the boots, WWE will surely offer him a role behind the scenes, either on the road or at the Performance Center.
