On Thursday afternoon, we ran a report (originated at Pro Wrestling Sheet) stating Goldust’s WWE contract recently expired and would be a free agent in May after a 90-day no-compete period. Goldust says the story is false and lashed out at ‘smart marks.’
We apologize to Dustin Rhodes and our readers for the error.
Goldust to AEW Speculation
With reports of Goldust’s time in WWE winding down, fans have been speculating that Dustin Rhodes will be Cody Rhodes’ “mystery opponent” at AEW: Double or Nothing.
AEW’s Road to Double or Nothing Youtube series has been teasing that the situation between Cody and his mystery opponent is “personal.”
The latest hint that Dustin could be Cody’s opponent was dropped on this week’s installment. During a phone conversation with AEW seamstress / costume designer Denise Cutler, they were discussing Cody’s gear for Double or Nothing. She asked Cody if they should avoid the color gold, which some fans took as a reference to Goldust.
AEW Double or Nothing is scheduled to go down on May 25th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will will mark the first official event under the AEW banner.
