The Goldust Character

While in this sexually ambiguous character, he was nicknamed ‘the bizarre one’ and wore a golden

coloured jumpsuit, with golden and black face paint, and for a short time, a golden wig. Since the

debut of the character as a villain, Goldust has evolved overtime. While in the beginning he made

lewd gestures during the Attitude, the character became an undeniable fan favourite later on.

Goldust fancied himself a director of films, and his “Shattered Dreams Productions” was a part of his

obsession of everything gold, including the Oscars.

Outside the WWE, he wrestled in other than his Goldust Character. He wrestled in WCW as ‘The

American Nightmare’ Dusty Rhodes.
