Goldust Discusses Vince's Reaction To A Match Against Cody, Vince Helping Him, His Father, More

Arda Ocal of theScore Television Network, Baltimore Sun and Layfield Report recently spoke with former WWE Superstar Goldust (Dustin Rhodes). Here are some highlights:

How far the idea of "Cody Rhodes vs Goldust" at WrestleMania went, and Vince McMahon's reaction: "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."

Initially being uncomfortable with the Goldust: "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."

His relationship with his father today: "Oh we're on the best terms now, I'll never let that happen again. As far as children out there that hate their moms and dads just get over it because you get one dad and one mom, you know suck it up, learn something."

Goldust also discussed if the Goldust character have worked in today's WWE, his opinion of "Cody's Moustache" and WWE's youth movement, how the "stuttering" evolution of Goldust began as a rib backstage and more. You can watch the interview below:
