The heart of the matter
The following is the press release WWE issued regarding the new team of The Bonafide Diva and The Bizarre One:
To say that The Bizarre One and Miss Fox each bring something unique to the table is a gross understatement. He’s flamboyant and larger-than-life, while she’s prone to completely unpredictable behavior that stems from her raw intensity. Yet, their potential advantage in the unprecedented competition ahead of them goes way beyond their ability to throw their opponents off their game.
Both Superstars are seasoned squared-circle competitors who have seen it all, and they’ll be ready for anything that comes their way. Goldust is a three-time Intercontinental Champion and a three-time Tag Team Champion. Fox is a former Divas Champion. Translation: This is a pair who knows how to win.
