Is Goldust (Dustin Rhodes) Done With WWE? Goldust Denies Reports

WWE veteran Goldust is reportedly done with company, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet.

Goldust’s WWE contract recently expired and he will be a free agent after the 90-day non-compete clause expires. There’s no word on when exactly the deal expired, but word is that he will be a free agent in May.

Goldust hasn’t been used by WWE this year and he underwent surgery on both knees in July 2018. He competed in the 5th annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34 and the Greatest Royal Rumble match, both in 2018, but his TV and live event appearances were limited after that.

All WWE mentions from the former @Goldust Twitter account have also been moved. Dustin Rhodes is now tweeting from @dustinrhodes and his bio now reads like this: “Actor/Author/Entertainer! Appearance manager-scott@prestigeappearances.com. Film Agent – Aur-aelion@almondtalent.com”

There’s been speculation on a possible Dustin vs. Cody Rhodes match at AEW’s Double Or Nothing event on Saturday, May 25. It was recently announced that Cody would be facing a mystery opponent and he’s stated that things are “personal” between them. The rumors picked up when the 9th “Road to Double Or Nothing” episode was released earlier today, seen below. The video includes a tease for the match when Cody’s seamstress asks if she should stay away from gold.

WWE veteran Goldust took to Twitter today and denied reports on his WWE contract being expired.

He wrote, “I am still under contract with the @wwe , and everything that is being said online is just talk, and complete bulls–t. This is exactly why I hate smart marks!”
