Goldust
Since WWE introduced quite a bit of new performers on Monday Night Raw this week, rumors have been running rampant about which of the current stars on the main roster are going to be removed to make room. One of the names that has popped up is Goldust, as his contract with WWE is expiring in the near future. The veteran performer signed a short term deal upon his return last year.
April 13, 2014
Cody Rhodes
In a sign that they are still in the dog house with management, Cody Rhodes and Goldust were removed from the Hulu version of Monday Night Raw this week. Their match against Damien Sandow and Fandango, two guys who normally do not team up together, was considered a throwaway segment and not deemed important enough for rebroadcast.
April 1, 2014
Christian
WWE has announced that the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal will consists of Alberto Del Rio, Big E Langston, Big Show, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Fandango, Goldust, Great Khali, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, Miz, R Truth, Rey Mysterio, Santino Marella, Sheamus, Sin Cara, Titus ONeil and Zack Ryder. There are also four spots available for last minute entrants.

Cody Rhodes
On Monday Night Raw this week, Goldust and Fandango worked a singles match, where Cody Rhodes and Summer Rae were both at ringside. An accident took place in the ring, and Goldust ended up being busted open and needing a couple of stitches to close. The veteran WWE star was quite frustrated backstage about the incident.

Cody Rhodes
After much speculations about their role at Wrestlemania 30, Cody Rhodes and Goldust have now been confirmed as participants for the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal. There were talks backstage in WWE of giving the brothers a higher profile match on the show, but management has been downplaying their importance over the last several weeks.
March 19, 2014
Dusty Rhodes
Even though the brothers have not been utilized on television as strongly as they were a couple of months ago, WWE is working on a DVD that will featured around Dusty Rhodes, Cody Rhodes and Goldust. The family should be receiving a push whenever the DVD is ready to be launched. There's a good chance now that Goldust will stick around a little bit longer.
March 14, 2014
Roman Reigns
In a rather peculiar move, WWE removed the match featuring Roman Reigns, who is their rising star, Seth Rollins, Cody Rhodes and Goldust from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. That comes as a surprise to many, as the Shield is viewed as one of the focal points on the show. It also surprised people that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were considered more of a priority this week.
March 11, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Back when Cody Rhodes and Goldust had a lot of momentum going their way, there was a lot of talks of bringing Brandi Rhodes up to the main roster to work a program with her husband and his brother. However, since the two of them are not longer being pushed, Brandi appears to be stuck in the developmental program for the time being.
March 9, 2014
Goldust
There are talks that Cody Rhodes could have some backstage heat on him for whatever reasons. He has been demoted a bit over the last couple of weeks, and his rumored match against Goldust at Wrestlemania 30 has been all but dropped from the playbook. There is a chance that he might not even get a spot on the card at all.
March 8, 2014
Cody Rhodes
For a while, there was a very good chance that Dusty Rhodes was going to be involved at Wrestlemania 30, as his sons, Cody Rhodes and Goldust, were penciled in for a match against one another at the pay per view. However, with WWE leaning away from that idea now, there really is not much of a need for Rhodes to be booked for the show.
March 2, 2014
Goldust
For quite some time, there were plans penciled in for Wrestlemania 30 for a big match between Cody Rhodes and Goldust. Management is not nearly as high on the two of them nowadays, as the match is now off the table. There is still a chance, though, that the brothers will work the pay per view as a tag team, especially if they go with a multiple team match for the WWE tag titles.
February 27, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While it was initially feared that he would be back on the sidelines after injuring his knee at a television taping last week, it appears that Rey Mysterio is healthy enough to keep working, as the masked superstar worked a six man tag team match with Cody Rhodes and Goldust at the Smackdowing taping this past Tuesday night.
February 20, 2014
Curtis Axel
While many were under the impression that Cody Rhodes was being left off of the Elimination Chamber 2014 main card because of his knee injury, apparently, he is healthy enough to work, as WWE has placed him into the kickoff match. He will be teaming with Goldust in a tag team match against Ryback and Curtis Axel.
February 19, 2014
Goldust
Originally, Cody Rhodes and Goldust were both scheduled to work live events over the weekend in Las Vegas and Phoenix. However, it appears that management has pulled them because they wanted to give Cody some time to heal up from his knee injury. The brothers might still make an appearance on Monday Night Raw, though.
February 17, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Since WWE wants a tag team championship match at Elimination Chamber 2014, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn are assured of a spot on the card. It looks like management is leaning towards a fatal four way match. The other contestants are most likely going to be Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Jack Swagger, Antonio Cesaro, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso.
February 16, 2014
Goldust
Through Twitter, Dusty Rhodes posted this special happy birthday message to his granddaughter Dakota Runnels. She is the daughter of WWE star Goldust.
February 14, 2014
Goldust
Prior to transforming into Goldust and making a long awaited return to WWE, Dustin Rhodes did some acting. He is one of the stars in an upcoming movie called Meet Me There, which will make its premiere conveniently around the same time as Wrestlemania 30. A special contest is being held to allow fans to watch the movie with Rhodes.
February 8, 2014
Goldust
Since he is still scheduled to do a story line against Cody Rhodes, the belief is that Goldust will be the one doing the heel turn. The veteran performer is signed with WWE until the summer, so the story line could very well extend past their rumored match at Wrestlemania 30.
February 7, 2014
Goldust

The belief backstage right now is that Cody Rhodes and Goldust will be splitting up at Elimination Chamber 2014, where the brothers are expected to be involved in a match for the WWE tag titles. A match between the two is still penciled in for Wrestlemania 30.

February 1, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Cody Rhodes and Goldust paid a visit to WWE NXT, and the brother tandem were placed into a match against Rick Victor and Conor OBrian. The match ended in a disqualification, and the developmental wrestlers were on the losing end.

Kamala
Back when he was a teenager in Mississippi, Kamala was a bit of a thief. He became known in town as a burglar who came from a poor family. The local police did not want to arrest him, so they heavily suggested that he leave town to avoid any further complications. The future WWE star opted to flee to the state of Florida, where he made money by picking fruit.
April 11, 2014
Wahoo McDaniel
In one of the more interesting connections in professional wrestling, when Wahoo McDaniel was a teenager in Texas, he was coached in baseball by George Bush, who would go on to become the 41st President of the United States.
April 9, 2014
Arn Anderson
Even though the truth has been out there for several years now, a lot of wrestling fans are still under the belief that Ole Anderson and Arn Anderson are brothers in real life. They're not. The relationship was created for their on screen characters to help Arn connect with the audience quicker because Ole was already established in the territory.
April 4, 2014
Uncle Elmer
Back during the 1980s, one of the most talked about segment in professional wrestling was when Uncle Elmer got married on national television. It was an actual wedding, as the performer was really wanting to marry his longtime girlfriend. When he approached Vince McMahon about it, the promoter loved the idea and decided to make it a draw for WWE.
April 4, 2014
Bobby Eaton
One of the biggest mysteries in professional wrestling involves Dennis Condrey and his decision to walk away from the Midnight Express. When asked about the situation, Bobby Eaton said that his former tag team partner basically left without saying a word to him for two years. Condrey reportedly did not inform Jim Cornette or the NWA, either.
April 2, 2014
Jim Cornette
While a lot of performers will say that they always wanted to be involved in the professional wrestling industry, Jim Cornette actually means it. The legendary NWA manager started working in the business when he was just 14 years old, serving as a photographer, ring announcer, magazine correspondent and as a public relations person.
March 23, 2014
Randy Savage
Back when he was a star for WWE during the late 1980s, Randy Savage made a discovery that would have a bit of an impact on the professional wrestling industry. The former world heavyweight champion was the one that discovered Sid Vicious, whom he convinced to give the industry a try. Savage sent Vicious to train with Tojo Yamamoto to start his career.
March 22, 2014
Jesse Ventura
After serving six years in the Navy and before becoming a professional wrestling star, Jesse Ventura had a brief stint with the Mongols, a well known motorcycle gang. He states that he was a fully patched member and actually served as the third in command. He left the group prior to the Mongols starting a longstanding war with the Hell's Angels.
March 22, 2014
Dick Murdoch
When he first made his debut in WWE, there were people who speculated that Trevor Murdoch might have been related to the late Dick Murdoch, a wrestler who made his name during the territorial days. However, there are no bloodlines between the two performers. Someone backstage in WWE simply gave Trevor the name because of his resemblance to Dick.
March 21, 2014
Mike Rotunda
Back when he was with the NWA, Mike Rotunda had an amateur wrestler gimmick when he teamed with Rick Steiner. It was actually based on his real life athletic career in college. Rotunda really did wrestle at Syracuse University. He was never an All American, though.
March 21, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Despite being one of the best performers in the history of professional wrestling, Ric Flair has opted against training others in the art of the game. In fact, the former NWA champion has only formally trained one person in his career. That man is Stan Lane, who formed the legendary Midnight Express tag team with Bobby Eaton during the 1980s.
March 20, 2014
Mr Fuji
When the future WWE Hall of Fame inductee made his debut in professional wrestling in 1965, there were not a lot of prominent Asia people in the country, so Harry Fujiwara, who was actually born in the United States, opted to stop using his real name and shortened it to Mr Fuji. It was easier for promoters and fans to spell and pronounce, and the move paid off rather well.
March 20, 2014
Bret Hart
Years before the Bret Hart screwjob in Montreal, Vince McMahon pulled the same trick on Wendi Richter. Since she would not sign a new contract with the company, McMahon wanted to take the belt off of her, so instead of telling her about it, the future WWE CEO opted to put the Fabulous Moolah in a mask. Along with the referee, Moolah changed the ending and took the belt off of Richter, whom the legendary performer trained.
March 20, 2014
Bryan Clark
Since the video game was sweeping the nation, WCW decided to capitalize on the popularity of the Mortal Kombat series by creating wrestling characters that were similar to the ones in the game. Bryan Clark, Ernest Miller, Glacier and Chris Kanyon were given characters that were part MMA fighters and part superheroes.
March 20, 2014
La Parka
For those of us that watched him in WCW, La Parka will forever have a small place the hearts of professional wrestling fans. The story of his mask has been a topic of interest for people. After going through several different characters and several different masks, the performer finally settled on the skeleton look because it was inspired by the Day of the Dead celebration that takes place in Mexico each year.
March 14, 2014
George Steele
After a successful career as an amateur wrestler at the University of Michigan, Rick Steiner was discovered by George Steele, who convinced the college graduate to become a professional wrestler immediately after he finished school.
March 10, 2014
Matt Hardy
Prior to becoming a big star for WWE and TNA, Matt Hardy was quite the scholar. In high school, he won a scholarship to any college of his choosing to major in engineering. Shortly into his academics career, he was forced to withdraw from classes and leave, so that he could go home and take care of his sick father.
March 5, 2014
Mae Young
While many will remember her long and storied career in professional wrestling, Mae Young actually started out as an amateur wrestler. A bit of a tomboy growing up, the future WWE hall of fame inductee, was trained by her older brothers on how to wrestle. She became so good that she was allowed on the boys team in high school.
March 2, 2014
Adam Pearce
As a kid, Adam Pearce was quite the athlete. He lettered in football and baseball while in high school. Unfortunately, though, those dreams were cut short as he suffered from Acute Muscular Compartment Syndrome, which basically required him to learn how to walk again. He would battle his way through that to become a professional wrestler.
March 2, 2014
Fabulous Moolah
While a lot of people are aware of the match at Wrestlemania 1 featuring Wendi Richter going up against Leilani Kai, accompanied by the Fabulous Moolah, not a lot of people know the connection between the trio. Richter actually trained at the school owned by Moolah. One of her trainers was none other than Kai herself.
