WWE News: The Golden Truth boast a high-winning rate this year

The Golden Truth boast a high-winning rate in the 2017 calendar year.

The Golden Truth boast a 36-1 winning record in 2017.

What’s the story?

As per Cagematch.net, the Golden Truth were undefeated for a large part of the year, with their streak starting after their loss to Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson on Monday Night RAW on December 26th, 2016, and ending on the latest episode of Raw when they were beaten by Sheamus and Cesaro. 

The team that bore the brunt of RAW GM Kurt Angle’s criticism last week, in fact, boasts a high-winning record in the 2017 calendar year. 

In case you didn’t know...

The Golden Truth comprises of Goldust (Dustin Runnels) and R-Truth (Ron Killings) and was formed last year - a team that has been primarily booked as jobbers to the more prominent tag-teams on the WWE roster.

The heart of the matter

The Golden Truth presently compete on RAW and were involved in the Tag-Team Turmoil matchup on Monday Night RAW at the O2 arena in London, England. The team was on an unbeaten streak and boasted a winning record of 36-0, coming into the aforementioned elimination bout this past Monday night. 

It’s essential to note that most of the team’s victories have come in non-traditional tag bouts, such as eight-man tag-team matches. Nevertheless, the team of Goldust and R-Truth now boast a 36-1 winning record in the 2017 calendar year.

The Golden Truth were one of the teams involved in the Tag-Team Turmoil Match on Monday Night RAW, which also featured Enzo and Cass, Sheamus and Cesaro, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, and Heath Slater and Rhyno. Goldust and R-Truth were the last team to enter the match, but failed to capitalise, losing to Sheamus and Cesaro. 

What’s next?

The team still boasts a high winning rate this year, as opposed to RAW General Manager Kurt Angle’s on-screen criticism of the team’s win-loss record. 

Author’s Take

The Golden Truth may have been relegated to the dreaded jobber status in the WWE, however, in the wild and unpredictable world of professional wrestling one can’t count out anybody. After all, they have an excellent record this year and the numbers don’t lie!

Many old-school WWE fans, including me, would love to see Goldust go on one last title-run in the WWE, perhaps a throwback to the beloved Attitude Era.
