SmackDown Matches For This Friday, Goldust Says He's 'Retired'

– Goldust wrote a post Tuesday evening on Twitter ( saying he has retired. "i am retired," he wrote, adding, "byeeeeeeeee." Though it should be noted that in a previous tweet, he said he was very tired coming off the road and heading to the beach, so it's likely he was joking. The multi-time Intercontinental Champion has been largely relegated to Superstars since being drafted to RAW in April, having only competed once on WWE's flagship program. He once again appeared on Superstars at Monday's taping in Philadelphia, teaming up with Yoshi Tatsu to take on Zack Ryder and Primo.
