Dustin Rhodes Shares Dusty’s Initial Reaction To The Goldust Character



‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes was certainly shocked to see his young son Dustin appear in the WWF as the bizarre Goldust character.

In a recent interview with Denise Salcedo, Rhodes recalled his time under the gold paint and his father’s reaction to the enigmatic persona. He said,

“When I went to WWE and became Goldust,” Dustin said, “that’s when I had a brand new pair of shoes that I fit in myself and made a name for myself being the son of Dusty Rhodes.

“It was very shocking to Dad because he didn’t know [about the gimmick]. Cody tells the story [that] he sees me on TV [and] didn’t know it’s me. But then he looks back at Dad and Dad’s got this look on his face like, ‘What is going on? That’s my son. What is he doing?’ I don’t know if he was embarrassed or what but that’s when we weren’t talking and I just had to do that, I guess. I wanted more.”

As Goldust, Rhodes became a three-time WWE Intercontinental Champion and had multiple tag-team and Hardcore Championship reigns.
