WWE Legend Goldust recently spoke to Wrestling Inc's Nick Hausman on the WINCLY podcast on his brother Cody Rhodes launching All Elite Wrestling and his thoughts on the rally held in Jacksonville, FL last week. Check out highlights below.
"I was on set shooting the finale for my horror film I'm gonna be in so I did not get to see the rally, But I saw clips afterwards and said, 'Holy hell! They must have spent $100,000 on pyro. This is big for Cody. This is very big for the wrestling community. This is going to go somewhere. I hope so, he's my brother. I wish nothing but the best for him."
Possible "Monday Night War" Similarities:
"I do. I'm still waiting. I'm watching. Hopefully they get a good tv deal because tv's important. But I have no doubt that Cody, him being a Rhodes, and watching and learning as much as he has over his short career, it is incredible. I sit back in awe and thinking about Pops and I know Dad is grinning from that rally and is very, very proud, as I am as his older brother. I see nothing but a bright future…It's something the world needs to grasp hold of because Cody is a Rhodes. The wrestling community loves the Rhodes Family, not only loves them, but we know what we're doing. Everyone makes mistakes along the way, but we learn from our mistakes. We learn and we watch as much as possible before we do any big move like this and this is a big move.So, let's do it. I wanna see him succeed.It's good because I've had a lot of time in the last year-and-half, because of my double knee surgery, to look online and watch some of the stuff instead of traveling, I''m like, 'Holy moly! This is crazy.'"
"I have it streaming on my iPad in my SUV," Goldust said of All In. "He's trying to talk to me and I'm like, 'Hold on, Sheriff. I'm watching something. I'm so proud of him because he sold that thing out so quickly and it's just a great time right now. Timing is everything and what Cody is doing is very special.With Cody now an EVP of a wrestling promotion, there will naturally be talk of his brother joining him. I have been WWE for the last 24 years, I've had little stints where I've left but I've always come back. It's been home for me. But now being 49 years old, granted I can still go with the best of them, but not like a 45 minute match…. With these last two knee surgeries, as much as I love film, I'm looking forward to acting right now and doing something different than wrestling.My acting career is a dream I've always had and I've accomplished one dream so I want to accomplish [acting]."
His Acting Career:
"Come see me. If you want to shake a hand, if you want a story, I'll be more than happy to sit down with you and talk with you. It's what I love to do. I love you fans and I appreciate your support. Come on out and see me. We're gonna have a lot of fun. Astronomicon is gonna be big."
