Goldust shoots down retirement speculation

UPDATED: Goldust sent out a second tweet to clear up any confusion. He is not retiring.

ORIGINAL: Former WWE Intercontinental Champion and future Hall Of Famer Goldust (Dustin Runnels) took to Twitter to thank the fans for supporting him for 30 years. Runnels, as Dustin Rhodes, had his first match in 1988.

If he is indeed retiring, then he will be missed and it’s a shame to see him go because he is still an excellent wrestler even at 49 years old. His message on Twitter seemingly indicated that he was going to take on a larger role backstage helping out the young talent. His last WWE TV appearance was during the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal during the WrestleMania Kickoff show.

He wrote:

“Our industry has blessed me beyond anything I could have ever hoped for. For 30 yrs. You, the fans, have welcomed me in your homes. You’ve hated me, loved me, and have come to adore me. For that I say thank you. My love for pro wrestling still has its spark in my heart. The kids are what matter to me. Now as I grow older and a little wiser, I want to pass on my knowledge, just as it was to me. Our roster is stacked. Don’t now everything but I do know psychology and how to work. If any of our young talent needs help, I’m here. You are my family away from my family and I love all of you and want you to succeed the best you can. If I can help you in that area, great. Just ask and continue to #KeepSteppin and kickin ass. Dustin Runnels.”
