We published an article this morning based on Terri Runnels recent appearance on The Ross Report. During the interview, Terri discussed leaving WCW and we had incorrectly stated that she said she had walked out on Dustin [Runnels], when she had actually said that she walked out on [then-WCW booker] Dusty. We apologize for the error and have removed the passage from that article.
Below is the corrected quote from Terri, which is from episode 127 of The Ross Report at the 24:50 mark.
“I walked out on Dusty one night, yes. Yes, I like literally, I walked out… Yes, I walked out… Whatever his mistaken thoughts were about how… I guess he thought I was, you know, a gold digger, which, interestingly enough, Dustin, God bless his soul, didn’t have a pot to piss in when we first started dating. I owned a property in downtown Atlanta [Georgia], you know, had a nice savings. I mean I was doing very well for myself. I didn’t need anybody, so I found that very interesting that, you know, that was one of the concerns.
“But yeah, in the beginning, I knew who I was. I knew that I loved and cared for Dustin and I was very protective of him in the sense that, you know, sometimes Dustin needs that. And you know exactly what I’m talking about, but I just, one night, decided ‘I’m not doing this’ and I just said, ‘I’m out of here’ and just left [WCW]. It was at Center Stage and I just walked out.”
