Dustin Rhodes Says He Was Initially Uncomfortable With the Goldust Gimmick

January 18, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

- Dustin Rhodes recently spoke with Arda Ocal about the Goldust gimmick, his push for a Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust match at WrestleMania last and more. Check out the highlights and video:

On how far the idea of Cody vs. Goldust went: “It was discussed several times. I took it to Vince’s attention many times and this was like months before and almost a year before things like that. Each time he was like no, second time no not going to do that, third time no, not yet, he left that open for me with not yet, it gave me a little hope.”

On his early days as “The Natural” Dustin Rhodes: “You know me and Steve Austin had some knock down drag out matches in the ring and a lot of blood was spilled things like that, we had some great matches. I think probably the feud I had with him was marked my favorite.”

On his initial discomfort with the Goldust gimmick: “As far as the work it took me about 6 months of Vince saying I’m going to stand behind you and no matter what. I don’t want you to get head strong, if you’re stressed out just give me a call if you need to talk, and I did on several occasions. I really got no direction on how to be more androgynous and I was just learning how to be a heel.”
