Goldust had a long and memorable career in WWE and was a staple during the Attitude Era. However, he is currently Dustin Rhodes and is working in AEW. He had a tremendous match against his brother Cody Rhodes at AEW Double Or Nothing last month.
While working with WWE, Goldust wore a full-body suit to the ring and it was very uncomfortable as it didn’t breathe whatsoever. On E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, Edge recalled seeing steam coming out of Goldust’s suit at one time.
“Bless his heart, Dustin [Rhodes] with that full body PVC [suit]. Man I felt so bad for him in that thing because you could…I remember working him and seeing him turn his head and steam coming out of it. You talk about it being hot out there in jeans and a jacket, well imagine a PVC suit that doesn’t breathe at all. And I literally saw like…you know when you’re sweating pretty good and you’re in one of those like, old arenas, and you can see the steam coming off you, right? Well it came out of his suit. It was crazy.”
This goes to show how much Dustin Rhodes loved the business and how dedicated he was to his craft. It will be interesting to see how he fares in AEW now.
