13. Goldust Reveals Why He Turned On R-Truth, Says He’s Going To His Roots
During a recent interview with FOX Sports, Raw Veteran Goldust talked about turning on his tag team partner R-Truth, Golden Truth’s run in WWE, what’s next for him & more. Below are the highlights:
On why he turned on R-Truth:
The high point of his run in Golden Truth:
“I think it stems from the week when we had the tag team turmoil match, and R-Truth fell short. When it really counted, that’s when we needed it. We hadn’t as a tag team had a title shot. We kept losing, and he lost that one opportunity for us. That just sent me over the edge, and I’d had enough. He’s holding me back. It’s time to get back to my roots.”
“You know, we had a lot of fun early on doing the backstage thing. It was funny, it was entertaining… and then somewhere along the way, R-Truth was trying to oversee everything instead of letting things organically fit together for us as a team. He stopped communicating with me about the way things were done. He saw it one way, he wanted to do it his way.
And his way… to me, when you’ve been in the business for as long as I have, wasn’t the right way. I’ve done that, I know exactly what to do. In a sense, he was holding me back.”
