Goldust recently spoke with Sports Illustrated for an in-depth interview, and had mentioned that AEW's success would be a good thing for WWE.
"Me and Cody talk a lot, and I was on a movie set for a horror film that I'm doing, and we were texting about that AEW rally in Jacksonville. The pyro alone was spectacular. They're doing it really professionally, from the heads of the company to their big talent to the newer stars. I'm very curious to see what Cody and the Young Bucks can do with All Elite Wrestling. I hope this really takes storm and becomes something formidable. You need places to go and work, competition is great and it is the best thing that can happen for WWE. I am very proud of Cody, and I know Dad would be so proud and happy for Cody. He has a great mind for the business, he's done so much already, but he's paid attention and learned from mistakes. He's fought for what he has, and his work in AEW will show that."
