There aren’t many WWE superstars who can claim that their career has had the longevity of former World Champion Goldust. The son of WWE Hall of Famer has seemingly done it all in the squared circle and is now the only remaining member of the Rhodes family who is employed by WWE after his brother left the company and is currently pursuing a number of career options on the Independent Circuit.
It’s been a long time since Goldust has been seen on WWE TV, but the former Champion appeared on Sports Guys Talking Wrestling, where he seemingly confirmed that he is at the end of his WWE career.

“I’ve wrestled just about everybody there is to wrestle, done just about every character reincarnation that I can come up with. What’s next? I’m at the end of my career here and about to be 50 in April. What else is there to do? I don’t know,” he said via Ringsidenews.
“My body’s getting older, they’re getting younger and faster. It takes a toll on an old man’s body like myself or [Kane] or Mark Henry or ‘Taker. You gotta do it a little bit less. You can’t go balls to the wall like we used to.”
Goldust recently underwent surgery on both his knees and explained that his body doesn’t recover as quickly as it used to when he was younger, so he’s now finding it hard to keep up with the young talent in WWE at present.
Much like many other stars, Goldust has been working backstage in WWE for a while and could easily transition into a producer role when he finally decides to step away from his in-ring career.
