"Just yesterday, I posted on Facebook about my 10 year old son's prediction that the Goldust/Cody vs Shield match was going to steal the show at Battleground. He even prefaced it by saying "I know Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton are going to have a great match, but..."
"Last night, Goldust proved to me that his match with Randy Orton was much more than just a flirtation with greatness. As a guy who knows a little something about making comebacks, I thought, following that amazing effort against Randy Orton that Goldust may have had just enough passion and commitment to have that last great match of his career. But last night's match at Battleground proved to me that Goldust has something even more important than the passion and commitment needed to have that one last great match. What he has is gas in the tank!"
"As much as i loved the match with Orton, Dustin seemed to be running on fumes those last few minutes. He clearly had worked himself into the best physical condition I'd seen him in for many years, but being in "gym shape" and "ring shape" are two entirely different animals. But what a joyride the Rhodes family took us on last night! From that pre-match promo that had proud Poppa Dusty unable to contain his composure, to the crisp execution of every move, to the finish that had the Foley family literally jumping for joy in the living room, (I didn't get much air, but I DID momentarily leave my feet) the victory over The Shield reminded me of everything I love about wrestling. It was an emotional roller-coaster ride of epic proportions!"
"With the Orton match and last night's triumph to his credit, Goldust has proven to me that he has what it takes for one more run in WWE."
