• “We had a falling out, which was the worst decision of my life” – Dusty Rhodes Didn’t Approve Of The Goldust Character
On the newest edition of the weekly ‘Talk Is Jericho’ podcast, WWF/WCW Veteran Dustin Rhodes explained that he had a falling out with his father ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes, when he went back to the World Wrestling Federation in 1995 and was repackaged as Goldust.
Here’s what Dustin said:
“I had that in the back of my head, like, is he ribbing me for this? But at that point, I had been trying to follow in my dad’s footsteps for so long and it was like ‘it’s not working man, I have to do something else’.
We had a falling out, which was the worst thing, the worst decision of my life ever, you’ve got one dad, one mom, so it’s good to work things out, right?
But we were in that downtime where we weren’t speaking to each other and Vince McMahon had just called me and he presented that and I just said yes.”
Dustin Rhodes had several stints in the World Wrestling Federation (1990-1991, 1995-1999, later WWE 2002-2003, 2005-2006 & 2009-2019), in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1991-1995 & 1999-2001), in Total Nonstop Action! (TNA, 2004-2005 & 2007-2008), before he signed with Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling in 2019.

• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School 90s WCW Wrestler The Equalizer aka Dave Sullivan (Real name: Bill Danenhauer) turns 59 today.
If you watched Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling during the mid-90s, you will certainly remember him as the dyslexic kayfabe brother of the evil ‘Dungeon of Doom’ leader “The Taskmaster” Kevin Sullivan.
Hulk Hogan himself took him under his wings (storyline wise) in late 1994 & early 1995.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE SULLIVAN!
