– During a recent interview, Goldust spoke about what it was like very early in his career when he left WWE with his father and headed back to WCW. He also talked about how Vince McMahon reacted to the situation. Dustin said:
“Dad did. Dad was going back to WCW — I didn’t know it at that time but at the Royal Rumble where we did our business with Ted and Virgil, at the end there, dad said, Why don’t you ask Vince for your release and come with me to WCW? So, I did and he granted me that. Dad tells this story to everybody still to this day. He’s like, I walked off and I thanked Vince and him and dad we’re still talking. I’m out getting my bags or whatever it was and Vince said, That guy there, you’re taking him with you to WCW and that’s fine. But, he comes back here, I’m going to pull him from you and make him a star.’ He tells that story and it’s still really cool because he did. Goldust is a household name and he made me a star. It’s awesome because it’s kept its longevity for such a long time”
