Earlier this year Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks made a bold statement when they announced that they would be financing their own wrestling event called All In. The event sold out in short time, and was one of the most anticipated wrestling shows of 2018.
In the weeks leading up to All In, fans were wondering who might end up making an appearance at the event, and during a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio Goldust confirmed that Cody Rhodes asked him to be a part of it.
“You know back when he was doing ALL IN, he texted me and then he called me, and was like, ‘Can you come do the ALL IN?’ And I was like, ‘I cannot. I’m under contract with WWE’ and I asked them and they told me I could not do it. So I told Cody that. He was kind of heartbroken — couldn’t really understand it because he is still young but I think after the time went on and his ALL IN was a success and he’s just doing great things — he kind of understood that I had a signing up in New York and I saw him and we talked a little bit about it and he understood at that point but I think he was upset that I couldn’t be there to watch him win the World Title and I was upset, and I really was.”
Goldust also talked about what’s next for his career, and he noted that he doesn’t know what the future holds because he’s still recovering from his knee surgeries.
“I wanted to be there but they wouldn’t let me and I understand business is business and you gotta do what you gotta do so hopefully… I’m still under contract right now, with WWE and I’m on injury reserve right now with my knee surgeries, so I don’t know what’s happening. I’m 49-years old almost 50. Thirty years is a long time so I’m not sure what the future holds — the immediate future holds for me in the business. I know how to act. I’ve done a couple of movies, and I wanna do more because that’s a lot of fun. It’s a lot easier on the body.”
Even though Goldust wasn’t in attendance for All In it was still one of the biggest nights of his brother’s career, as Cody went on to defeat Nick Aldis and capture the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship.
