Source: The Miami HeraldGoldust recently spoke with The Miami Herald to promote tonight's WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Here are some highlights:
His recent resurgence:
"It's a lot of DDP Yoga and gym work and eating right and staying in shape. My mind has also been right for the last five-and-a-half years being clean and sober from drugs and alcohol. So I think all those things played a big factor in this. Being able to do stuff that I've never done and wanting to try new things and having the young talent that's actually hungry and help me get through that and make it look good. I've got some new moves in my arsenal, and the people love it. This new attitude and new Goldust they've never seen with new face paint. I couldn't have asked for anything. This run has been great."
Staying clean and sober, and inspiring others:
"I hear that on Twitter. They say because of you I haven't used a drug for eight days or picked up a drink. That's awesome. I'm a true testament that the WWE Wellness Policy works, if you work it. It took me one time, and I was ready to turn my life around and say goodbye to the demons. They're always there. They are always on my shoulder, but all I have to do is take hold. The support group I have with my wife and my daughter and things like that. Now its five-and-a-half years going on six years clean and sober and having the time of my life. I can actually get in the ring and do things in the ring I thought in the past I couldn't do without a pill or drugs in my system or alcohol to get through a match and wake up in the morning. It's a piece of cake. I'm doing it. I'm 44 years old, and I'm kicking everybody's ass."
No longer wanting to face Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania:
"The dream match I did have I do not anymore at WrestleMania. So right now I want to continue to be the WWE tag team champions and have someone big step up to try to face us at WrestleMania. I think we need to try to be on that card and put on one hell of a show."
