#6 Goldust

Billed From: Hollywood, California

*Has also been announced from “the deepest, darkest corner of his mind”

Actual Hometown: Austin, Texas

Not your average country boy from Texas!

He's one of the most underrated and underappreciated WWE Superstars of all-time and even today and even though he’s just a few cups of coffee away from being 50 years old, Goldust is still competing full-time alongside R-Truth in their duo commonly known as The Golden Truth, until his recent apparent heel turn on Smackdown Live.

Early on in his career, when he was simply known as Dustin Rhodes, it was a lot easier to use his actual hometown as the city he was billed from. However, once Goldust was born, everything changed and for obvious reasons, Goldust just did not seem like the type of character you would see out on the streets of Austin, jumping from bar-to-bar.

With that said, a place such as Hollywood seemed to be much more fitting for someone as eccentric as Goldie. It’s also worth nothing that there was a time when Goldust hailed from “the deepest, darkest corner of his mind.”
